Mark Wright says he didn’t know who Michelle Keegan was until she chatted him up

Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan have the picture-perfect marriage.

But former TOWIE star Mark, 33, has confessed that prior to her flirting with him on the red carpet he had no idea who the Coronation Street bombshell, also 33, was.

The Heart FM DJ shared reportedly shared the revelation in scenes filmed for an upcoming appearance on Shopping With Keith Lemon.

During a chat with the funny man – played by Leigh Francis – Mark dished that when he started out in showbiz he had no clue who Michelle was but that she peaked his interest when she dubbed him “fit” at a red carpet event.

According to MailOnline Mark tells: “The way she came to my attention, I never knew who Michelle was when I started and someone said to me you know that Michelle Keegan did an interview on the red carpet and she was asked about you and said ‘he’s fit but he knows it”.

“So I went who is Michelle Keegan so I googled her and went ‘phwoar’, so that brought her to my attention and I thought I’d like to take her out. At first I didn’t chase it because she was just a pretty girl.”

Keith then cheekily jibes: “You were having loads of pretty girls then!”

Mark then adds: “It’s not that no, when I got to know her I realised what a special person she is and what a nice person she is.”

Mark popped the question to actress Michelle in 2013 and they tied the knot two-years after at a Tudor mansion in Suffolk.
