They’re one of the hardest-working couples in showbusiness, racking up a number of TV appearances, radio work and fitness projects between them. But now Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright have a new passion project that will bring them back together amid their busy schedules.

And a source close to the couple told new that they’re so happy to be starting PH OT a new chapter together. “This house really is Mark and Michelle’s passion project.
