Michelle Keegan has defended her marriage to Mark Wright and insisted they are still madly in love despite spending time apart for work
Michelle Keegan has hit back at rumours her marriage is in trouble.
The 'Our Girl' beauty tied the knot with Mark Wright in 2015 after three years of dating and although they have been spending time apart while she films in South Africa and he works for 'Extra' in Los Angeles, Michelle insists they are happier than ever.
She told The Sun: "I don't understand how a couple can't have their separate careers, and why can't a newly married woman go off and do her job and a husband go off and do his?
"I don't understand why that's a negative. It should be celebrated.
"I'd say there is a slight degree of sexism to it. I always think it's good we've got our own careers.
"He's put all his effort into that and I'm putting all my effort into this.
"And for me, I just find it really exciting that we're working so hard separately, for our different careers.
"Then, when December comes, when I can have a break, I'm going to go straight over and see him. I find it really exciting."
And the pair keep in constant touch with video calls and messages.
She added: "Don't get me wrong, we miss each other so much but we are in constant contact with WhatsApp and FaceTime."
Michelle also revealed that she and Mark, both 30, are keen to start a family.
She said: "We always say we both want to have kids, definitely, start a family. But when the time is right.
"We'll know when the time is right, definitely."
