Michelle Keegan has opened up about her long-distance marriage to Mark Wright, admitting things were really tough between them.

The lovebirds got married in a lavish ceremony back in 2015, but were soon forced to spend time apart as she jetted off to Malaysia for Our Girl filming, while her Towie beau got a presenting job in LA.

And the 32-year-old revealed the huge distance put a strain on their marriage.

During an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, she told the host: He got the job in LA while I was in Malaysia [filming Our Girl].

We were apart for about four months. It was really tough. People said, “How did you deal with it?” and stuff.

Thank God for FaceTime and things like that.

Michelle also spoke out about plans to start a family with Mark, 32, admitting her mum keeps asking when they will have a baby.



And she explained the pair are not thinking about it just yet.

Not yet. Everyone always asks that question, she continued. Dont get me wrong, Im not getting any younger.

My mum is on it as well. No plans yet, but we definitely do want children in the future.

This isnt the first time the former Coronation Street star has been questioned about whether the pair will be having children.

And she previously blasted baby questions as horrible, fuming it is no one elses business.

She told The Sun: Its horrible. Its like, “Youre 32. Are you not planning to have a baby yet?”

People dont know if were trying. They dont know the background of whats happening. Its no one elses business. In this day and age you shouldnt ask questions like that.

Im asked purely because Im a woman. But Im immune to it now — its like a reaction and as soon as I hear it I brush it off, as its no one elses business.
