But Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan are reportedly "bemused" by the constant questions about the state of their marriage. The former Coronation Street actress wed the former TOWIE star (both 29) last year and have been forced to deny reports of a rift in recent months.

Keegan has been busy filming her first major role since leaving the hit soap - BBC army drama Our Girl in South Africa - while Wright divides his time between the UK and LA. She has also been spotted without her wedding ring during public appearances, which she claims is simply because she doesn't want to lose it.

It looked to be all smiles from their camp on Sunday night as  the popular tv star cheered on her husband at Old Trafford for Soccer Aid 2016.
