Michelle Keegan has spoken of her marriage to fellow TV star Mark Wright in a rare interview and insists the pair are blissfully happy, despite spending months apart. Michelle has been filming Our Girl in South Africa this year, while husband Mark jets to and from the US having landed a presenting role on entertainment show Extra. Michelle, 30, told The Star that the couple, who married in 2015, FaceTime regularly to keep the romance strong.

Speaking of her marriage to Mark, also 30, Michelle told the paper: “We’re happy. I don’t want to constantly say, ‘We’re happy, we’re fine,’ because why validate it? If we’re happy, we’re happy.” The actress added that their marriage is going well and Mark visits her on location. Michelle says: “Why can’t a woman work away and have a separate career from her husband and still have a good marriage?”
