Mark Wright might be totally smitten with his new wife Michelle Keegan, but last night he chose another lady to take as his date to the Caudwell Children’s Butterfly Ball.
When the former TOWIE star turned up at the glittering event to work the red carpet with Rachel Stevens on his arm, a few surprised looks were exchanged. Excuse us, Mark? What’s the meaning behind this hot date of yours?
But actually, it was all very innocent (of course it was). Because Mark and Rachel were the hosts of the event for the night, and boy, what a glamorous couple they made.
The ex S Club 7 star looked sensational in a navy floor-length gown with a nude mesh embellished top section, styling her hair in gorgeous loose waves and adding a pale pink lip.
And Mark looked as dapper as he did on his wedding day, working a smart black tuxedo and his enviable all-year-round tan.
Sharing a snap of the pair of them on Twitter, Rachel wrote: ‘Me & @MarkWright_ presenting & raising money for @caudwellkids #ButterflyBall15 next up, @LionelRichie excited!’
And how did Michelle Keegan feel about Mark’s gorgeous plus one for the night? Well, as lovely and supportive as ever, of course, which she showed by tweeting a heart next to a photo of Rachel and her hubby. Aw.
The night, which raised a whopping £2.5 million last year, was a special one, with Lionel Richie performing for the crowd alongside Tito Jackson and Paul Potts.
