Instead, he arrived on the red carpet at London’s O2 Arena on the arm of his older sister Jess. Aw.
Mark, 29, was as dapper as ever, perfecting a smart-casual look in black jeans, a matching T-shirt, boots and a camel suede jacket. Suave.
Meanwhile, 30-year-old Jess added a splash of neon to proceedings in an off-the-shoulder two-tone dress.
She’d paired the sleek midi with a choker necklace, metallic pink heels and chest-skimming bronde curls. When it came to her beauty look, she’d opted for statement smoky eyes and a vampy plum lip.
It’s safe to say that she looked incredible. And considering it’s the middle of February, we were LOVING the summer vibe.
Unfortunately, there was one teeny problem with her outfit – TV presenter Maya Jama was in exactly the same frock. Eek. Let’s hope they didn’t bump into each other…
So where was Michelle?!
Some reports have concluded that she’s in South Africa, where she’s busy filming her new role on BBC Army drama Our Girl.
But considering we were chatting to her for an upcoming interview yesterday (yep, EXCITING), we’re pretty sure she must still be in the UK. Hmmm.
Whatever the case, we’re sure she’s got a good excuse. Although we’re pretty gutted we won’t be getting to see her work it on the red carpet.
Remember the lacy black mini and green clutch she sported last year?! We were BIG fans.
Ah well. Have an amazing night, Jess and Mark!
