Mark Wright's Twitter followers knew how serious he was about Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan. So it's no surprise to hear the couple are engaged just nine months after getting together on New Year's Eve in Dubai.
At the end of August the reality TV star posted about how happy he felt, saying: "I love my girl more than anything", adding the hashtag "honest".

Mark, 26, has been relatively protective of his privacy with the beautiful brunette. The duo rarely make public appearances together and he has tried to steer clear of fly-on-the-wall reality shows.
Earlier this year, he vowed: "I'll never do a show like TOWIE again. I won't put my personal life on the line again. It could ruin my relationship."
The new approach seems to have paid dividends. As he told HELLO! a few months ago, Mark's in a very good place both personally and professionally. Essex's premier charmer has been presenting his Club Classics show on Heart radio every evening and has a fashion range with Littlewoods.
And soon he'll have a Mrs Wright to celebrate his success with.
