Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan have arrived back in Britain after their luxury two-week honeymoon. "Home sweet home!! What a month!! Will never forget this one. So happy, had the most amazing time but #cantbeatyourownbed," Mark tweeted on Wednesday night.
The following morning, his new wife Michelle also took to Twitter. "Back to reality…" she wrote. "The one word I can use to describe this whole month is 'Magical'. So happy and so grateful. Here's to the next chapter…"
Mark Wright and his new wife Michelle Keegan have arrived back from their honeymoon
Mark and Michelle, 28, were married in a gorgeous wedding ceremony at St Mary's Church in Bury St Edmunds on 24 May – as featured exclusively in HELLO! magazine. They then jetted off for their first holiday as Mr and Mrs, beginning at a luxury island resort in the Maldives, before travelling on to Dubai, a special location for the couple. It was here in September 2013 that 28-year-old Mark popped the question.
The newlyweds spent the final days of their honeymoon with some of their loved ones, who had jetted over to Dubai to be with them. Both Mark and Michelle's parents flew over along with Mark's brother Josh and his girlfriend.
As their blissful holiday came to an end, Mark took to Twitter to make a few things clear to his ex-girlfriend Lauren Goodger. The Heart FM DJ said he felt the need to speak up after finding it "embarrassing" that Lauren regularly spoke about him and Michelle in her weekly magazine column.

In a series of tweets, he urged his former fiancée to respect his new wife. "Endless mentions RE: me and us is embarrassing. I really thought after lawyers being involved and polite pleas to stop mentioning me she would stop," he wrote.
"Maybe not. It's hurtful to think one person needs to mention YOU every week to earn a living. Being married to another women almost makes it unfair!! If your reading this, please PLEASE respect my wife and STOP.
"Everyone has a past, get over it!! I really didn't want to have to do this but enough is enough. I wish you well but leave me, my life and my wife out of it. I'm sure there is other ways to make money."

Lauren has since responded to his comments. "Mark is right – this situation is incredibly embarrassing," her spokesperson told the MailOnline. "Week after week Lauren has to suffer endless source story lies printed about her in the press surrounding Mark.
"This list is as long as it is ridiculous. It's hurtful for Lauren to constantly be painted in this way and for readers to actually believe it. That is why Lauren has taken to her own column in the past to defend herself against ludicrous claims such as the one that said she was going to gate crash the wedding.
"Anyone facing such embarrassing lies week in week out is of course going to want to defend themselves."
The statement continued: "Lauren has privately been in a relationship too and this unwanted attention surrounding her ex of many years ago is certainly not welcomed. We would like to clarify that Lauren is paid the same weekly fee for her column every week whether it mentions Mark or not, and she has given no other interviews on him – despite the numerous offers.
"She once again wishes them nothing but the best."
