Everything about Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright’s marriage may not be as happy as it seems, according to sources.
According to a source, Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright are struggling with the distance between them due to work commitments.
The actress, 35, from Stockport recently accepted Instagram to celebrate the anniversary of her marriage to Mark, 35, from Essex. She shared a stunning photo from her 2015 wedding with her 6million followers with the caption, “Happy birthday to my husband, my best friend and biggest supporter. Loving You”
Despite the heartwarming gesture, the couple’s relationship is reportedly strained due to their distance from Michelle, who is filming BBC’s Ten Pound Poms in Australia, while Mark stayed in the UK to film BBC’s A Wright Old Adventure.
A source tells Closer: “They both struggle with the fact that they often live effectively separate lives. They are 100% committed to each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together, but the distance between them is taking its toll.”
The person added that once Michelle and Mark caught up, they were “constantly” pulled apart.
The couple, who have a £13million home in Essex, met through mutual friends while on holiday in Dubai in 2012.
They previously spent an extended period apart when Michelle was abroad filming Our Girl and Mark took a job in the US.
Former TOWIE star Mark opened up to Piers Morgan about the challenges of being separated from his wife.
The broadcaster replied that he and his wife Celia Walden would not stay apart for more than three weeks.
Michelle and Mark have been inundated with questions about when they will start a family since tying the knot.
The two are currently renovating their home and have over 421,000 followers on one Instagram Account dedicated to showing the process.
