Who knew Michelle Keegan‘s wedding ring could cause so much dramz, eh?
But when the 28-year-old actress was spotted without her rock on her left hand earlier this week, it got everyone talking.
Michelle was in South Africa at the time, where she was busy filming the second series of BBC Army drama Our Girl.
Her husband Mark Wright had stayed in the UK, although he and his parents did fly out to visit her last month.
While their separation can’t have been easy, Mark was very supportive of his wife, previously telling the Daily Mirror: ‘I’m going to miss her – we’ve never been apart for so long so it will be difficult.
‘But it’ll be fine, I’m going to try and get out there when I can. I’m so proud of Michelle – this is a great opportunity and I would never stand in her way.’
Aw. But despite this, fans were a little concerned when Mich’s ring finger appeared to be jewellery-free in a series of Twitter photos posted by her co-star Mark Armstrong.
A representative later hit back at suggestions her and Mark’s marriage was in trouble, telling new!: ‘Of course they’re together.
‘We won’t be commenting on Mark and Michelle’s relationship.’
TBH, we could think of plenty of reasons why Mich would go sans ring. We mean, have you SEEN the size of that rock?! Maybe she just didn’t want to risk losing it.
And apparently, this actually was the case. A source tells The Sun: ‘Michelle left her wedding ring at home in her safe because she was scared of losing it while filming.’
Yep, makes sense to us. Michelle’s now back in Essex with Mark, 29, where she’s enjoying a short break before Our Girl filming resumes in the UK.
Happy reunion, guys!
