MICHELLE: MOVING UP… AND OUT
Doughnuts for dinner, roller coasters, sunset beach walks… Michelle Keegan certainly seems to be enjoying LA life
I love LA. I don’t think I’d move there, because I’m such a homebird,’ said Michelle Keegan back in December. Three months on, and we’re told there seems to have been a change of heart, with Michelle, 30, preferring LA life that bit more.
For the past few months, Mich has been visiting husband Mark Wright, 31, in LA, where he’s based for his Extra TV presenting role. Insiders say that the lifestyle, the sunshine and spending time with her man are all contributing towards that change.
‘Michelle has reached a real crossroads in her life and realises that she and Mark can have an incredible future together in LA,’ explains an insider. ‘They’ve been viewing properties and are considering buying, which shows how serious she is about laying down permanent foundations. Producers in LA are very positive about Michelle and are eyeing her up for some high-profile parts.’
Meanwhile, Michelle’s parents visited her in LA last week – we’re told their blessing about a potential move is important to Michelle – and the actress was also spotted buying what looked like homewares at a market. Decorating by any chance, Mich?
‘Michelle was scared about losing touch with her friends and family,’ says a friend. ‘Having her parents over has made her realise she can have a great life in the States. They think her and Mark can have the best of both worlds.’
We contacted Michelle’s publicist, who told us there’s ‘no official comment’, but with the future looking so good for Mich, we think this move is imminent.
