On Au­gust 6, Mark Wright threw his wife, Michelle Kee­gan, a spec­tac­u­lar and boozy be­lated 30th birth­day party in Spain.

That was three months ago, and it’s the last big night out Michelle has had.

A few days later, she flew to Kuala Lumpur to film BBC drama Our Girl, and Mark moved State­side to present TV show Ex­tra.

But while Michelle – who is cur­rently film­ing in Malaysia – has been keep­ing her head down, her husband has been par­ty­ing up a storm… and it’s mak­ing Michelle feel jeal­ous.

Our in­sider says, ‘Michelle can’t wait to be back in the UK with her near­est and dear­est. Mark was in London and Es­sex last week, film­ing for Ex­tra, so he saw his fam­ily and friends, but Michelle doesn’t have that lux­ury. He even took co-host Mario Lopez to his favourite Sheesh res­tau­rant with Olly Murs.

‘Michelle hasn’t been back in three months. Film­ing’s been in­tense, and if she does have a night – or a few hours

– off, then she spends it un­wind­ing or learn­ing lines. She cer­tainly hasn’t been able to so­cialise like Mark.’

‘She’s in con­tact with those she’s close to, but it’s not the same as be­ing with them. She can’t help but feel a bit jeal­ous when she sees Mark hav­ing fun while she’s not around, and it’s caus­ing ar­gu­ments,’ adds the source.

Last week, Mark was snapped out­side a London club with a pretty brunette. We’re told the girl in ques­tion is a friend of Mark’s so­cial crowd, whose boyfriend was also out on the same night.

‘Michelle wasn’t an­noyed at Mark for be­ing out with that girl,’ ex­plains our source. ‘It’s more that she feels lonely, be­cause she doesn’t have her so­cial net­work around her to keep her com­pany, yet he’s not had to sac­ri­fice any­thing.’ We’re told that Mark has ‘hardly had time to him­self’ since be­ing in LA, and he’s flown out his mum Carol, 57, dad Mark, 60, and sis­ters Jess, 32, and Natalya, 16. Not only that, but the 30-year-old has been en­cour­aged by his man­age­ment to net­work well to build up his port­fo­lio. He’s in­ter­view­ing Hol­ly­wood roy­alty, and was even in­vited to Ge­orge Clooney’s Hal­loween bash. ‘Part of Mark’s job is net­work­ing, so his ar­gu­ment is – what’s he sup­posed to do? They’re both away for work, not just him,’ says our source.

‘But, of course, he also un­der­stands how she’s feel­ing. Her friends are go­ing out to­gether in Manch­ester, her husband is liv­ing in LA, and she’s in a ho­tel room on her own, see­ing them hav­ing a good time via so­cial me­dia.

‘She misses her home com­forts, so when Mark’s gush­ing about her on so­cial me­dia, it’s to re­as­sure her that it’s not all fun for him, too – be­cause he’s miss­ing her.’

Michelle and Mark will next see each other in De­cem­ber, when next year’s Our Girl se­ries wraps up film­ing. Michelle will head to LA to spend a cou­ple of weeks with her husband be­fore they head home for Christ­mas.

Last week, Michelle tweeted, ‘Be­ing in Malaysia and see­ing Christ­mas ad­verts!!! Ex­cited isn’t even the word! Count­down is ON! #fly­inghome­forx­mas.’
