Mark Wright gushes about wife Michelle Keegan's performance in Our Girl

It’s official, Mark Wright is the number one fan of his wife, former Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan.

The Only Way Is Essex star Mark has gushed about Michelle’s performance in the BBC One drama Our Girl.

Wednesday night’s episode of Our Girl saw Michelle’s character, Georgie Lane, being successfully rescued by her former flame after being kidnapped.

Mark shared his thoughts on Twitter:

And he wasn’t alone in his praise of Michelle – fans and viewers were also bowled over.

The couple tied the knot in May last year at a celebrity-packed ceremony in Suffolk.

During a recent interview on BBC Radio 1 with Nick Grimshaw, Michelle touched on tabloid reports about her private life, following speculation over her marriage to Mark.

She said: “It’s so annoying, the thing is I don’t even read it any more, it just winds me up. It is just negativity and I can’t be bothered with it.”

The hashtag Our Girl started trending during Wednesday night’s episode, and Michelle was overjoyed.

A few celebrities are also Our Girl fans:

Well done, Michelle!
