Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright have been happily married for six years, after tying the knot at St Mary's Church in Bury St Edmonds in May 2015, however, there is still something that causes much confusion – and that's Michelle's surname.

The former Coronation Street star has finally set the record straight to reveal that she is officially Michelle Wright!

When featuring on the Girls No Filter with Jess Wright podcast, Michelle's sister-in-law Jess stumbled when it came to the introduction, confessing: "I went to say Keegan then but you're Wright, but you're Keegan." Then Michelle was asked: "Do you actually introduce still yourself as Michelle Keegan?"

The actress clarified: "I'm just used to Keegan now, legally I'm a Wright, but I think anytime I do any interview or something, I would be a Keegan."

Michelle's surname is likely to have caused confusion among fans if her own family were unsure, so although Michelle's social media and TV appearances are under the name of Keegan, she is legally registered as Mrs Wright.

Even before the moment where Michelle became a Wright, Mark couldn't keep his eyes off of her. Speaking to HELLO! about when his bride walked down the aisle, the star revealed: "I didn't know if I'd be able to keep looking at her. But then I thought, 'You know what? I'm not going to miss this."

After the heartfelt vows at the church, the celebrations continued at Hengrave Hall in Suffolk, in a huge marquee within the picturesque grounds. Michelle also used the interiors for incredible wedding photographs.
