The sweet post comes shortly after husband Mark Wright opened up about their marriage. He told The Sun: "I'm extremely proud. I feel very lucky. The one thing I'll say I'm not arrogant or confident about any kind of talent because I can’t sing to save my life.

"I can't act; like my wife's a born actress and is incredible at what she does. I can't do that."

The couple have been married since 2015. They tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at St Mary's Church in Bury St Edmunds followed by a wedding reception in the grounds of Hengrave Hall in Suffolk – which was exclusively covered by HELLO!.
