michelle & mark: ‘We need to Work on us’

The cou­ple are work­ing hard to keep their mar­riage on tracké

They’re liv­ing al­most eight thou­sand miles apart, but Michelle Kee­gan and Mark Wright are said to be ‘more de­ter­mined than ever’ to make their long-dis­tance re­la­tion­ship work. While Michelle is cur­rently film­ing the third se­ries of Our Girl (last week she was in Nepal), Mark has jet­ted off to LA where he’s work­ing on a new TV project. Not only are they liv­ing in dif­fer­ent time zones (Nepal is al­most 13 hours ahead of LA, mak­ing it tricky to Skype), ac­cord­ing to our sources, they just can’t seem to make their sched­ules work. In an in­ter­view last July, Michelle told Look ex­clu­sively that: ‘I don’t see Mark as of­ten as I’d like,’ but last week­end, it seems the 29-year-old headed back to the UK to be with her hus­band – only to find out he was asked to re­main in LA for longer. On an In­sta­gram Story, Mark re­vealed he made it to LAX air­port be­fore he was re­quired to go back for a lonely night in his ho­tel room (pre­sum­ably catch­ing up on Take Me Out: The Gos­sip)… ‘Michelle’s sac­ri­ficed a lot of her time to make it work and en­sure their sched­ules match,’ says our source. ‘Now she’s wor­ried that 2016 is go­ing to hap­pen all over again.’ ‘They’re com­mit­ted to each other and Michelle’s telling ev­ery­one that noth­ing will come be­tween them, but it’s chal­leng­ing,’ adds an­other source. ‘It was eas­ier when it was just Michelle’s sched­ule they had to work around, but now Mark has a job in the States, it’s a dif­fer­ent ball game.’ A cou­ple of weeks ago, it was re­vealed that 30-year-old Mark had landed a job as a re­porter on US en­ter­tain­ment show Ex­tra. Since the news broke, Mark’s been post­ing cryptic In­sta quotes, in­clud­ing a photo cap­tioned: ‘I found out this week that funny enough the harder I work, the luck­ier I get… #work­ing­whiley­oung’. While it ap­pears th­ese two are work­ing around the clock, they cer­tainly seem to have a busy so­cial life too, es­pe­cially Mark, who’s been hang­ing out with One Di­rec­tion’s Niall Ho­ran re­cently. With the cou­ple liv­ing so far apart, we can’t help but won­der what Mark’s got planned for their sec­ond wed­ding an­niver­sary on 24 May and Michelle’s 30th birth­day 10 days later. Speak­ing in an in­ter­view last month, Mark said: ‘I do have plans, but they’ll be a sur­prise.’

The two are in dif­fer­ent worlds: LA and Nepal
