Michelle Keegan on being away from Mark Wright and making the most of date nights

Their busy careers often keep them apart, but Michelle Keegan has revealed how she and husband Mark Wright make the most of the time they get together. While the actress is busy filming in Manchester right now, presenter Mark is kept down south by his own commitments.

But the distance between Mark and Michelle, both 29, just means they make even more of an effort when they are together. Speaking to Look, former Coronation Street star Michelle said: "I think that's really important. When I was down south we'd have [a date night] once a week.


Michelle Keegan said she and Mark Wright have to make the most of date nights

"Whereas now I'm in Manchester and he can work at weekends, we don’t see each other as often as I'd like. But when we do see each other, we always do something."

It's not always glamorous either, as Michelle explained she and Heart FM presenter Mark sometimes enjoy staying home in comfy clothes and watching TV together.

She continued: "Just normal things – we go for a nice dinner where we can get dressed up, or we go to the cinema and just pig out on food and wear tracksuits and it's comfy, or we'll have a DVD night."

But when they do get to glam up, Mark is on hand with his own fashion advice

And when they do get dressed up, Mark is on hand to give his extremely stylish wife some surprising advice. Michelle added: "He's quite good with fashion anyway and normally I love to say that I don't listen, but I actually do.

"He'll point something out that I haven't seen before and be like, 'That doesn't go'."

The last time Mark and Michelle were separated due to work was due to her filming commitments for Our Girl in South Africa. At the time Mark opened up to HELLO! Magazine about being apart, admitting they try not to spend too much time away from each other. He said: "It's never easy being apart for so long, but it's been done before. I wouldn't say we have a rule but I don't think either of us would be happy leaving it longer than a month."
