It sounds like Michelle Keegan is wishing she was still on her hen do in Dubai (we don’t blame her!).
The actress jetted back from the exotic destination two weeks ago but reminisced last night by posting a number of snaps from the trip on her Instagram page.
In more than one of the photos, ‘Chelle was wearing a floaty white kaftan which had the personalised words: ‘Bride to be’ embellished on the back. Her loved ones were decked out in co-ordinated black versions.
Michelle and her flock of hens also sported monochrome bikinis for a wild pool party – and looked ah-mazing.
We’ve gotta say, some of Michelle’s uploads did make us well up a bit. She captioned one shot of herself and her pals strolling along the desert: ‘I’ve known these girls for over half my life, some of them longer!… And I feel so lucky that we were able to share this amazing experience together. Lasting memories! #bestfriends #dubai.’
How cute is that?!
Michelle wasn’t the only person who was sharing snaps on Instagram. Her fiancé Mark Wright‘s older sibling Jess also posted pictures of herself with both her mum Carol and her future sister-in-law.
They’re one seriously hot family…
Speaking of Mark, he returned from his stag do in Las Vegas yesterday. The Essex lad had been living it up in America’s party capital with a group of pals including former TOWIE co-star James ‘Arg’ Argent and his cousin Elliott Wright.
Mark, 28, clearly had a brilliant time in Vegas (judging by the hilarious snaps he’d posted on social media) – but he couldn’t wait to be reunited with Michelle.
He captioned a selfie with his suitcase: ‘it’s home time !! @michkeegan next stop.’ Aw!
Despite being very touched by Mark’s message, Michelle couldn’t help pointing that she wasn’t a *huge* fan of her man’s aeroplane outfit.
She replied: ‘About time!! You’ve been having too much fun!! Pull your socks down though! xx.’ LOL!
Yesterday’s images weren’t the first we’d seen of Michelle’s hen do. She and her pals originally posted some shortly after they returned to the country.
In one shot, we saw a deeply bronzed Michelle looking gorgeous in a slinky black mini dress as she cosied up to BFF Katie in a swanky looking bar on one of the first nights, her long dark hair tubling glossily down past her shoulders and a pair of silver strappy stilettos topping off her look. Classy lady.
Despite being a hen do, the 27-year-old actress managed to avoid any of the typical hen party dress-up garbs and instead looked gorgeous on one of their nights out in a white lacy detail Lipsy dress from her SS15 collection and a floral hoola necklace as she posed for a fan picture. Shop it below!
The former Coronation Street star also worked another gorgeous frock from her new Lipsy collection to the Siddharta Bar at the Grosvenor House hotel, which came in the form of a white lace skater dress.
On the day they flew out, former Coronation Street star was seen lining up at Manchester airport with a gaggle of nine of her closest gal pals (and mum Jackie) dressed in a customised white and pink ‘Bride To Be’ t-shirt, black skinnies, a huge pair of novelty glasses and, of course, the obligatory veil.
Flanked by former Corrie BFF Brooke Vincent and best friends Katie Fearnehough and Becky, Michelle, who is set to marry Mark Wright in summer, looked mega excited as they prepared to board their Emirates flight to Dubai.
While Michelle’s hen do tee had her nickname ‘Keegs’ on the back, her hen party pals were all working bright pink versions with the words ‘Shell’s Girls’ emblazoned across their chests, while mum Jackie wore a pink top reading ‘I can’t keep calm, I’m the mother of the bride!’ LOL.
Sharing a snap of her party posse in the departure lounge, Michelle wrote: ‘Essex and Manchester… Join forces!!! #CREW.’
The 27-year-old actress recently spilled all about her hen party on ITV’s This Morning. ‘My best friends Becky and Kate, who’s my maid of honour, [are in charge].’
‘We’re having a couple [of hen and stag parties],’ she explained. ‘We are having a few here, for me and then for Mark, and then a couple abroad as well – one each.’
And is it going to be the type of party where the bride-to-be ends up cling-filmed to a lamppost naked, The Hangover-style?
‘Probably, with my mates that will probably happen as well’, she laughed.
It’s pretty cute that Michelle picked Dubai as the place to have her hen party – not only is it where Mark and her met, but it’s also where he proposed to her back in 2013. Aw!
