It would certainly seem that things are getting serious between former The Only Way Is Essex star, Mark Wright and his new love interest, Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan, as she has been pictured in today’s Sun newspaper leaving his house the morning after another night out with him.
Michelle, who plays pregnant surrogate barmaid Tina McIntyre in the award-winning ITV soap, was spotted earlier this week at the ITV studios where Mark, who used to be engaged to his former TOWIE co-star Lauren Goodger, was filming the Take Me Out spin-off show, Take Me Out: The Gossip, which he co-presents.
Then on Monday morning she was spotted emerging from Mark’s Essex home with a friend, after another date on Sunday night.
And it seems that the loved up pair can’t keep away from each other as, after Michelle checked into the Corinthia Hotel in London last night ahead of her Daybreak appearance this morning, Mark was seen arriving at the hotel too, after Michelle had enjoyed a night out at the top celebrity hotspot, Nobu with her cousin.
Mark and Michelle have been linked romantically since they were pictured at the same New Year’s Eve party in Dubai, where, according to fellow partygoers, they couldn’t keep their hands off each other; however reports now suggest that the romance began a long time before then!
A source told this week’s New! magazine: “Mark and Michelle have been seeing each other a lot longer than people think.
“They were surprised they managed to go this long without people finding out. They hooked up last summer, but wanted to keep it quiet as they’ve both had relationships in the public eye before and they’ve gone wrong.
“They wanted to keep it private until they were sure about each other and where things were going.”
And, whilst things seem to be going swimmingly for the pair, they also have received the seal of approval from both their exes, Lauren Goodger and The Wanted’s Max George!
According to The Sun newspaper Goodger, who was voted out of the hugely popular ITV1 skating talent show, Dancing On Ice during Sunday’s live show, has revealed that she is happy for Mark.
“We’ve gone our separate ways and we don’t speak. I’m not even going to Mark’s birthday party,” she told The Sun. “I’m also in a relationship. It’s early days but I’m really happy.”
Meanwhile Michelle’s ex-fiancée, Max George, has reportedly taken things to the next level with his new love interest, Hollywood star Lindsay Lohan, by inviting her to spend the day with his family!
All’s well that ends well, then!
