Jess Wright Comes Out In Defence Of Mark And Michelle

It’s not just Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan who are getting sick of those rumours about their marriage.

Turns out, their families are just as bored of the speculation. And someone who’s particularly incensed is Mark’s older sister Jess Wright.

The 30-year-old has spoken out in defence of the couple, telling The Sun: ‘It’s awful for them but they have to rise above it and they do.

‘I feel like constantly having to defend their relationship, even though they don’t because they don’t give a s***!

‘It’s extremely annoying. I feel so bad for them because you don’t want to have negative vibes around your relationship.’

So what was it that sparked these reports? Well, it’s partially down to the whereabouts of Mich’s wedding ring.

When she was filming BBC drama Our Girl in South Africa last month, she was photographed off-set with an empty left hand.

Then on her 29th birthday at the start of June, she was seen out celebrating in Manchester without Mark – or her rock.

However, clearly sick of hearing about her missing jewellery, she angrily explained on Twitter that she was up North alone because the second leg of Our Girl shooting was taking place there.

She ranted: ‘No wedding ring, no wedding ring’ blah blah blah sooooo boring!!! Not that I have to explain but I’m SO sick of these stories…


‘I work on camera so I take it off and put it somewhere safe… SIMPLE. Last night I went straight out after work… Hence the NO ring!!! That’s the only comment I’m making!!!’

Mark, 29, has also given his two cents, taking to Instagram to post the quote: ‘Relationship where people know of us. But know nothing about us.’

Glad to hear everything is all A-okay, guys.
