Festive hosts Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright
Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright are hosting Christmas for both their families in their new Essex home
Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright are hosting Christmas for both their families.
The couple - who plan to marry next year - have recently moved into a new home in Essex and are looking forward to celebrating with all their loved ones.
Michelle said: "We'll be in our new home, hopefully with both families there, but definitely his. We'll all pitch in with the cooking."
And the former 'Coronation Street' star will also find the time for her traditional festive outing with her friends.
She said: "I have a tradition with my girlfriends in Manchester where each year we take it in turns to have everyone round for dinner.
"We get dressed up, do Secret Santa, put Christmas songs on and drink Baileys. We might go out afterwards too."
But Michelle isn't worried about the effects of alcohol as she doesn't drink very much anyway, but always has a plan if she is feeling hungover.
She said: "I eat my way through hangovers - it's the only way.
"I don't drink much anyway, so I don't bother with a January detox, but I guess I might try to be healthier because that's what everyone's doing."
