Star couple feeling the strain of reality show

He may be enjoying every moment on the dance floor, but Strictly Come Dancing star Mark Wright has admitted that his hectic training and performing schedule has affected his relationship with fiancée Michelle Keegan.

Opening up on the toll the show is taking on the couple, the former TOWIE star said that he and Michelle have barely seen each other over the past two months.

“About three weeks ago I’d been really missing her and she’d been really missing me. I sent her 27 roses and I said on the card, ‘Here’s 27 roses – this is how many days it’s going to be until we’re together,’” he said.

Wow, now that is a thoughtful boyfriend.

While the couple’s career commitments may be keeping them apart right now (Michelle is currently filming a new drama series in the north) one thing Mark insists they don’t have to worry about is ‘the Strictly curse’.

“If you’re in a genuinely happy, strong, beautiful relationship, it just doesn’t enter your head. It’s never been a question for us, genuinely,” he added.

Mark and Michelle are set to tie the knot next year, after announcing their engagement in September 2013.

Could they be more loved-up?
