Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright are planning a summer wedding, but the nuptials won't take place in Mark's hometown of Essex

Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan are planning a summer wedding.

The couple are currently searching for the perfect venue for their nuptials and the 'Party Wright Around the World ' star says they have now decided against staging it in either Essex, where he grew up, or Michelle's Manchester hometown.

He said: "It may be in between [the two places]. You can't get married in Essex because there are so few venues. What's perfect could be miles away from the both of us, so people might have to travel and stay in hotels.

"We'd like a summer wedding, definitely in the UK. I'm planning the party."

The 27-year-old star admitted he was terrified when he asked Michelle to be his wife.

He said: "It was scarier than swimming with sharks on my show. It was nerve-wracking. When she said yes I was ecstatic."

Mark - who says the couple will exchange "traditional" vows - insisted the casts of 'The Only Way is Essex' and 'Coronation Street' won't be on their wedding guest list.

He told Britain's OK! magazine: "They won't all be coming. The only people coming from 'TOWIE' are the people who were my friends in the first place, which is Arg, my sister and my cousin Elliott."
