Reality star Mark Wright and some of his best cronies racked up a Las Vegas stag party bill of almost €50,000 this week ahead of his wedding to Michelle Keegan later this summer.
The former TOWIE star and 35 of his friends jetted to Sin City on this week and have been partying in some of the city’s most luxuriously pricey clubs since their arrival.
On Thursday night the stag party hit the famous nightclub Tao where they requested the top table to watch Mark’s favourite band Rae Sremmurd, which cost the group an estimated €27,000 and they suckled on pricey vodka and champagne.
The previous night the group visited the Light club, a Cirque du Soleil-inspired venue, and wracked up a €20,000 bill behind the bar.
According to The Irish Mirror, the star fit in a photoshoot for a glossy magazine in the UK on Friday morning sore head and all, before gathering together with his mates to see Calvin Harris at Omnia.
Meanwhile, Michelle last week enjoyed a more low key hen party than her other half as she jetted to Dubai with her friends.
The former Coronation Street actress revisited the spot where Mark proposed to her.
She also decided to wear the same, full-length dress for some of her pre-wedding celebrations that she wore on the night Wright popped the question.
In an exclusive photo shoot for Hello! in Dubai, she said: "I knew I wanted to wear the dress again when we headed out to the desert as it has special memories for me.
"I did go back to the exact same spot on the beach with some of the girls. I did a re-run of what happened and I showed them where Mark was when he proposed to me. It was nice for them to see it."
Wright proposed in Dubai in September 2013. He and Keegan are set to tie the knot in a few weeks.
But Keegan isn't feeling nervous about her forthcoming nuptials just yet.
She said: "I feel quite calm about it all. I think because it's coming round so quickly now, there's no time to panic."
Keegan was celebrating her hen party in Dubai, where she was joined by her mum Jackie Thornton, former Coronation Street co-star Brooke Vincent and Mark's sister Jessica and his mum Carol.
The 29-strong party stayed at the elegant Grosvenor House Dubai resort, and Keegan reckons Wright's stag do will be more elaborate.
She said: "I think he's taking out even more friends and family than me."
