She’s known for mak­ing her gru­elling ca­reer sched­ule a pri­or­ity but, last week, Michelle Kee­gan ad­mit­ted she’s think­ing about kids. ‘We’ve not planned any­thing, and re­al­is­ti­cally noth­ing can hap­pen right now be­cause I’m too busy,’ she said. ‘I love kids and I want four, so hope­fully in the near fu­ture.’

Her com­ments come four years af­ter she first ad­mit­ted to feel­ing broody while wear­ing a fake baby bump when her

Corona­tion Street char­ac­ter, Tina McIn­tyre, was ex­pect­ing. ‘I’ve al­ways been broody, but I’m go­ing to wait,’ the ac­tress said at the time.

Mean­while, her hubby, Mark Wright, has al­ways been vo­cal about want­ing to start a fam­ily but, with the cou­ple spend­ing so lit­tle of the year to­gether, on­look­ers are start­ing to won­der when that will be…

And the two­some are still thou­sands of miles apart, as she wraps up film­ing on the third se­ries of Our Girl, which starts on BBC One on Tues­day, and he schmoozes celebs in LA as a show­biz re­porter for Ex­tra.

De­spite Mich ad­mit­ting that

‘it’s hard be­ing away from Mark’ in in­ter­views, and Mark say­ing, ‘Noth­ing is good with­out you [Michelle]! Hol­ly­wood club or not, just not the same,’ in a tipsy In­sta­gram video, the pair have only spent a frac­tion of this year to­gether.

Ac­cord­ing to our cal­cu­la­tions, the hot cou­ple have spent just 36 days to­gether in 2017 – or 13 per cent of the year so far.

Mark pub­licly pledged to see his wife ‘once a month’ back in May, as they pre­pared to spend most of the year on dif­fer­ent con­ti­nents.

But, in re­al­ity, with two hec­tic work sched­ules to jug­gle, Mark and Mich have found that prom­ise dif­fi­cult to keep. The last time the cou­ple spent time to­gether was in Au­gust, when they treated Mich’s par­ents to break­fast in Chig­well.

They be­gan the year to­gether, mak­ing the most of their time in Es­sex and Lon­don be­fore Mich jet­ted off to South Africa in April to reprise her role of Ge­orgie Lane in Our Girl.

When film­ing com­menced, Mark and Mich snatched alone time to­gether, but also spent time with friends and fam­ily. They went to a friend’s wed­ding in Oman in March, jet­ted to Paris in April (dur­ing Michelle’s fash­ion pho­to­shoot with Lipsy), cel­e­brated their wed­ding anniversary in Tener­ife (squeezed in be­tween Mark’s film­ing sched­ule for Take Me Out: The Gos­sip), par­tied in Ma­galuf to cel­e­brate Mich’s birth­day in Au­gust (while Mark jug­gled DJ gigs) and fi­nally re­turned home for two weeks in Au­gust.

Even though they haven’t set eyes on each other for two months now, Mark re­cently let slip that they won’t be back to­gether for an­other two months…
