Wedding bells are on the horizon for reality TV star Mark Wright and Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan – the former TOWIE favourite has asked for his sweetheart’s hand in marriage.
Sources close to the pair have confirmed Mark went down on one knee during a romantic holiday in Dubai, the exotic location where they first met nine months ago.
The couple – both 26 – are said to be “blissfully happy” after Mark’s proposal, which took Michelle completely by surprise.
He went down on one knee on a beach and presented her with a sparking ring – which he has designed himself and has been describing to friends as a “monster rock” – thought to be a five-carat diamond.
The news is yet to be confirmed by the couple themselves. Mark did tell his Twitter followers that he had “just woken up in the UK after an amazing holiday” – in an update which was retweeted by Michelle.
