WE’RE ALL WRIGHT! Michelle slams split ru­mours

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

RAGINGMichelleKee­ganslammed re­ports her mar­riage to Mark Wright is on the rocks and says re­ports of a split are SEX­IST.

The 30-year-old for­mer soap star is cur­rently in Malaysia film­ing for the next se­ries of BBC drama Our Girl while Mark is launch­ing his ca­reer as a TV pre­sen­ter in LA.

How­ever, Michelle in­sists their mar­riage is fine and says that both of them work­ing hard at op­po­site ends of the world should be cel­e­brated.

Michelle also said it’s hard enough be­ing away from her re­al­ity TV beau with­out hav­ing to deal with con­stant scru­tiny and crit­i­cism.

She said: “It’s been hard enough be­ing away any­way, but then to con­tend with all that. It just comes from nowhere.

“I don’t un­der­stand how a cou­ple can’t have their sep­a­rate ca­reers, and why can’t a newly mar­ried woman go off and do her job and a hus­band go off and do his?

“I don’t un­der­stand why that’s a neg­a­tive. It should be cel­e­brated.

“I’d say there is a slight de­gree of sex­ism to it.

“I al­ways think it’s IT’S ALL RUB­BISH: Michelle says split re­ports are sex­ist good we’ve got our own ca­reers. He’s put all his ef­fort into that and I’m putting all my ef­fort into this.

“And for me, I just find it re­ally ex­cit­ing that we’re work­ing so hard sep­a­rately for our dif­fer­ent ca­reers.”

The cou­ple’s two-year mar­riage has been plagued with split ru­mours over the last year as they con­tinue to live sep­a­rate lives.
