MARK Wright has given a rare insight into how his marriage to Michelle Keegan works.

The pair, who tied the knot in 2015,  are often kept apart due to their careers and, at times, have had a long distance romance, but Mark believes it all comes down to supporting each other.

Mark, 35, told MailOnline: “I think both being in the same industry really helps. Because we get each other's careers, and we totally understand it.

“Essentially, we both just want each other to achieve all of our goals and all of our dreams and we just support each other every step of the way for that, you know.”

Mark is currently spending time in Australia with Michelle, 35, while she films her latest TV show, which he admitted is “tough” because it is so far.

But he revealed he has had some advice from a surprising place, explaining: “You have to learn that you've been together for a long time and not seen each other in three weeks so it's exciting at first but then it goes back to being a 10 year relationship.

“The longer you go, the more pressure there is because the longer it's been. But I was in LA and had a dinner with Piers Morgan and I told him it was hard. He said: 'I had this with my wife and we have a 3 weeks rule so don't let it go past 3 weeks.”

Mark flew out to join Michelle after he wrapped filming A Wright Old Adventure alongside his dad Mark Senior and his brother Josh.

The pair were apart for eight weeks as Michelle got to work on BBC drama Ten Pound Poms.

The couple have nearly completed work on their dream home in Essex, where they no doubt hope to spend some time once Michelle’s finishes work on her latest project.

Michelle previously spent months filming abroad for Our Girl, while Mark relocated to LA for a job on Extra.

But earlier this year, Mark revealed that he had turned down a job presenting a huge American dating show because he wanted to be at home with Michelle.

He said: “I would never be able to live away again. I would certainly go back there for a period of time to do a job, but not full time. I don’t like missing my friends and family.”
