Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan enjoy loved-up lunch in Essex after TV presenter flew in to cover Royal Wedding for US TV

Former Towie star Mark, 30, returned to the UK to present coverage of the Royal Wedding for US TV show Extra.

It seems they were keen to make the most of their precious time together, with Michelle beaming for the camera as they posed for a picture.

They spent the afternoon soaking up the sunshine in Essex’s favourite celebrity haunt Sheesh along with some pals.

Mark is expected to fly back to Los Angeles in the next few days to start work again, with Michelle staying in the UK as she prepares to start a promotional tour for the next series of her BBC drama Our Girl.

The couple – who married in 2016 – are no strangers to long distance relationships as they spent most of last year apart because of their hectic work schedules.

Michelle, 30, recently admitted that unlike some couples, she found spending time apart had made their relationship stronger.

The former Coronation Street star explained: “We’re more patient with each other, laid-back, and don't sweat the small stuff.

“I think because we’re really happy in our careers it helps with the relationship as well.”

When they’re apart, the couple stay in touch through FaceTime and make sure they speak every single day.

She added: “We were [living at] different ends of the spectrum.

“I remember FaceTime-ing him surrounded by cattle and mud.

“He was in Nobu in Malibu having cocktails saying, ‘Aw babe, look at the view!’ I said, ‘Do you want to see my view?’”
