'Strictly Come Dancing' star, Mark Wright, has admitted that he loves taking part in the BBC1 dancing competition but is "really missing" his fiancee, Michelle Keegan
Mark Wright "really misses" Michelle Keegan.
The 27-year-old television personality - who is currently taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' - has admitted that the couple can't wait to spend more time together at Christmas.
He said: "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'.
"This weekend she has a break, which means we can be together every day until Christmas and a little bit after - I just cannot wait."
'The Only Way Is Essex' star has revealed that he and Michelle - who started dating in 2012 - are not worried about the "Strictly Curse", which sees the show's attached contestants start relationships with their dancing partners.
Mark said: "We've never even discussed it. I see why people do because of what's happened in the past.
"But 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.
"We're a happy couple who trust each other. We don't think about, 'Oh, can I trust him?' or 'Can't I trust him?' She's just like, 'Enjoy it, babe - she looks like a great partner'. And that's it."
Meanwhile, Mark has revealed that his 27-year-old fiancee gives him a lot of support, even when she can't be at the studio.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "In the week when I did the samba, when my scores went right up and I was third on the leader board, I got a great text from her.
"She was watching at her mum's house and the message just said: 'Wow! That was great - Hot, hot hot!'."
