Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright go back to start of romance with Dubai holiday

Dubai holds a special place in the hearts of Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright, so it's no wonder the couple looked thrilled to be back in their favourite holiday destination.

Mark and Michelle posted pictures of themselves enjoying what the Arabic hotspot has to offer – sipping cocktails on a beach bed at the Blue Marlin club and glamming up for a night out.

Mark captioned the image from the beach bar: "Partying at blue marlin dubai !! A Couple that raves together stays together !!"

The couple met at a New Year's Eve party in Dubai in 2011, and it was there that Mark asked for 24-year-old Michelle's hand in marriage in September 2012.

Former The Only way is Essex star Mark recently told how a spell away from Michelle was what convinced him to make her his wife.

"I was desperate to see her, I missed her so much and that's when I realised," he told the Daily Mirror.

"I couldn't be away from her for that long, so I thought I'm going to get on this flight and propose.

"I flew Michelle to Dubai and that’s where I told her I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.

"I've got now, for the first time in my life, what I've always wanted and what every boy dreams of – affection in a relationship, love, best friend, a girl I fancy… everything rolled into one."
