Michelle & Mark: Is It Make or Break time?
Mark reckons they just need a holiday, but let’s hope it’s enough for our fave couple
‘We have date nights once a week. That’s the key, being best mates and having a laugh...’ Just 12 months ago, a giddy newlywed Michelle Keegan was gushing to Look about her and Mark Wright’s relationship. But fast forward a year and the picture’s a little different. ‘We don’t see each other as often as I’d like,’ she told us recently. ‘We’ve both been so busy, it’ll be nice to get away.’ And friends say they’re worried if they don’t have some time off together soon, things might start to fall apart for the couple.
Last week Mark, 29, admitted the pair need a break, saying: ‘We’ve got a few more weeks and then Michelle and I have got some time when we’re going to have a free period to go away. I’ve been up and down the country and so has Michelle, so it’ll be a great when we finally get that time off – it’s been a long time coming.’
‘This break is important for Mark and Michelle because they can’t keep on going as they are,’ says a source close to the couple. ‘They spend more time with their friends than each other, which isn’t right. Michelle has made the point that this isn’t how she expected marriage to be.’
Things have been tough for them over the last few months. They’ve spent time apart due to clashing schedules; he’s Djing across Europe while she’s recently relocated to her home town of Manchester to film Tina And Bobby. Michelle, 29, told Look it’s practically impossible to sync their diaries. The pair have also been pictured arguing.
‘Michelle’s basically gone back to her old life of living in Manchester and being with her friends and family up there, while Mark’s in Essex,’ adds our source. ‘And it doesn’t help that Mark’s life is all about Djing and partying.’
‘Michelle’s told Mark that when they finally spend time together it has to be 100 per cent about them, no one else. She doesn’t want them to be constantly on Twitter and Instagram,’ adds another source. ‘She’s told Mark they can’t just head off to one of his favourite haunts, like Marbella, Majorca or Dubai. She wants it to be special and private.’
Hopefully these two can get some quality time together. We don’t want to see our fave couple split.
The pair have a few days off together next month
