The former TOWIE star added: "I've thrown the odd princess out to my wife before, I'm not going to lie. I sometimes call my wife treacle pant.

"I don't know why, obviously you'll be like 'hello treacle', but I put a 'pant' on the end, like treacle pants - but I take off the 's', 'treacle pant you want a cup of tea?'" Quickly regretting the exposure, Mark said: "I can't believe I just said that live on radio!"

The surprise confession comes shortly after the couple returned from their amazing Turks and Caicos holiday, where they were joined by their respective families.

"Making memories [heart emoji] Forever grateful to @beaches_uk for this magical gifted stay…Turks & Caicos was simply beautiful," remarked Michelle.

They also celebrated Valentine's Day on the glorious coral islands, with Mark paying tribute to his wife. "Happy Valentine to my wingwoman!! Cheers to laughter, love and happiness. My best pal," he gushed alongside a heartwarming snap.

It's an exciting time in the Wright household as two of Mark's siblings, Jessica Wright and their younger brother Joshua are set to become first-time parents.
