Michelle Kee­gan might be on the other side of the world film­ing Our Girl in South Africa, but she’s been drawn into new drama be­tween her hus­band Mark Wright and his for­mer fi­ancée Lau­ren Goodger.

It all kicked off when Lau­ren, 30, made a se­ries of ex­plo­sive al­le­ga­tions against Mark – in­clud­ing that she was still see­ing the ra­dio DJ when he started dat­ing Michelle.

Lau­ren, who’s now in a re­la­tion­ship with jail­bird Joey Mor­ri­son, also ac­cused Mark, 30, of get­ting her thrown out of Es­sex restau­rant Sheesh be­fore he ar­rived.

‘I feel sorry for them,’ Lau­ren said af­ter­wards. ‘They need to be left to get on with it, but him do­ing this has cre­ated that, not me.’

In­sid­ers say the sit­u­a­tion has riled Michelle, but she’s de­ter­mined not to let it get be­tween her and Mark.

‘Michelle is sick of out­side in­ter­fer­ence,’ says a source close to the star. ‘The past year Mark and Michelle have worked so hard on their re­la­tion­ship. Their mar­riage is stronger than ever – they’re not wor­ried any more about spend­ing time apart. They knew changes were needed and made them.’

It comes as Michelle, 30, works on the third se­ries of Our Girl, in which she plays army medic Ge­orgie Lane.

‘It’s dif­fi­cult for her to fo­cus when there’s drama back home, but she’s a true pro­fes­sional,’ adds the source.

Mean­while, Michelle’s had a new pal to con­fide in – a puppy that she’s been play­ing with on set.

Speak­ing about film­ing abroad, Michelle has said: ‘The hard­est part is not see­ing my fam­ily and friends. I know I’m in a lucky po­si­tion, but you do miss home a lit­tle bit.’

The cou­ple, who tied the knot in 2015, have been dogged by ru­mours about the state of their mar­riage due to the time they’ve spent apart, with Mark hav­ing re­cently landed a pre­sent­ing job State­side.

But Michelle has in­sisted that their ca­reer am­bi­tions have had no im­pact on their re­la­tion­ship.

‘Ev­ery­thing is fine with us,’ she said. ‘We have sep­a­rate ca­reers. Why is it a bad thing?’
