Mark Wright: I'll help plan wedding

Mark Wright has said he'll help Michelle Keegan plan their wedding - but he'll leave the "girly stuff" to her.

The professional party planner - who travelled the world organising parties in different cultures for his new ITV2 show Party Wright Around The World - proposed to the 26-year-old Corrie beauty on a beach in Dubai at sunset last September. They have decided to postpone their wedding to 2015 to give them time to organise it properly.

Mark said: "I'll leave a lot to her, like the colour scheme and the girly ideas, but when it comes to the party bit at the end I'd like to think I'll have a big input."

And the former The Only Way Is Essex star revealed that rather than choose between Essex and Manchester the couple plan to meet in the middle when it comes to a location for their wedding.

He said: "We've found a couple of venues in between at the moment. We're just in talks about contracts and licensing."

The 27-year-old TV presenter insists Essex people were born to party, but he has been enjoying discovering the Manchester party scene with Michelle.

He said: "The Manchester party scene is good as well. Anywhere I go with Michelle we have fun. She's like a best mate on a night out, she gets drunk with me, we have fun and dance all night."

And he doesn't feel their relationship is too much in the spotlight.

Mark insisted: "It's alright because we don't give big interviews and we've got such a great relationship, there's nothing hard to read. Other than that it's just pap pictures and stuff so it's fine. It's not too intense."
