The Coronation Street actress and the former The Only Way Is Essex star were going to tie the knot this year, but have now decided to exchange vows in 2015, because Michelle doesn’t leave the soap until the spring.
Mark told the Daily Mirror: “Michelle and I were thinking about getting married this summer, but we’re going to next year now.
“Michelle is moving to Essex to live with me this summer so there just isn’t time. And we don’t want to rush planning it as we both want it to be totally right.
“We’re really looking forward to it and I can’t wait for her to move to down to be with me. She wants to be nearer to London because of work, so it is working out perfectly.”
The reality TV star also revealed that he and Michelle – who have been dating for over a year – are ‘really happy’ together and that she is the perfect woman for him.
“Before I wasn’t always in a proper relationship so I could see other women. But now I’ve got Michelle, she is just too amazing to not want to be with all of the time,” he said.
