Share this:

Mark Wright may be married to Michelle Keegan, but the TV presenter fully admits that his new wife isn't the only woman in his life – far from it. Mark, 28, enjoys a close bond with his mum Carol and both of his grandmothers, Irene and nanny Pat, the latter of whom starred with the Essex charmer on TOWIE.

Speaking exclusively to HELLO! magazine, Mark opened up about the close bond he shares with his family, while mum Carol noted how married life has changed him.

"My nans have taught me to respect women," said Mark

"He never used to be domesticated," said Carol. "But since marrying Michelle he is. He's very house proud."

"I like a clean house," the radio presenter admitted. "If it gets scruffy, I can't stand it. I want everyone to take their shoes off."

"My nans have taught me to respect women," he added. "They would tell me off for swearing. My grandparents made me be polite and a gentleman."

It's his politeness and charm that earned Mark legions of fans – many of whom gathered outside St Mary's Church in Bury St Edmunds when he tied the knot with Michelle five months ago.

"To get married is a personal thing," said Mark. "But to have so many people commenting on how amazing it was is incredible. I get people wanting to chat, which is lovely; a nice feeling."

One of Mark's lucky fans will get the chance to meet him when he becomes a butler for the day as a competition prize for Greek-style yoghurt brand Oykos.

"I'll never be a professional butler," he admitted. "I don't think they'd want me to turn up being posh and with a straight back. But I'll help them out."
