Mark Wright breaks bone in his foot, praises 'amazing' wife Michelle Keegan for her support

This time 12 months ago, Mark Wright was busy rehearsing ahead of his appearance on Strictly Come Dancing. But the 28-year-old star certainly won't be hitting the dance floor any time soon, after revealing this week that he has broken a bone and needs crutches.

Mark disclosed the news of his accident on Thursday, posting an Instagram photo showing one of his crutches next to an open cookie jar. "When you break a bone, there's only one thing to do, sit, chill, watch films and eat biscuits!!" he wrote alongside. "Mmmmmmm nearly done the whole jar!"

One online follower asked if new wife Michelle Keegan had been taking care of him, to which he replied: "Yep she's been amazing!"

It's not clear how Mark injured his foot – but it must have happened after the TV Choice Awards on Monday night, which he attended with Michelle, with no crutches in sight.

The sweet couple, who tied the knot in May, stole the show at the star-studded ceremony, dressed to impress for one of the biggest nights in British television. Michelle, 28, looked flawless in a fuchsia shirt dress by Michael Kors – and Mark, understandably, couldn't have looked prouder as they posed together for the cameras.

Michelle Keegan said that she and Mark are "family now" following their wedding

Michelle and Mark recently returned from a well-deserved break in Ibiza - but it's been straight back to work for the actress, who launched her new autumn clothing collection for Lipsy this week.

Speaking to HELLO! Online about her new range, blogger Michelle also opened up about life as Mrs Wright. "It doesn't feel different, but it's a really nice feeling at the same time," she admitted. "I feel like we're a team, we're family now."
