Michelle Keegan on her upcoming wedding: I feel quite calm

Former Coronation Street star and Mrs Wright-to-be Michelle Keegan has revisited the spot where Mark Wright proposed to her in Dubai.

She also decided to wear the same, full-length dress for some of her pre-wedding celebrations that she wore on the night Mark 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.”

Mark proposed in Dubai in September 2013. He and Keegan are set to tie the knot in a few weeks. But Michelle 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.”

Michelle 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.
