Mark Wright rules out Strictly style dancing when he marries Michelle Keegan

Strictly Come Dancing semi-finalist Mark Wright has revealed he won’t be doing any fancy moves when he takes to the floor with his bride Michelle Keegan on their big day.

The TV presenter is due to marry the former Coronation Street beauty next year, and it had been rumoured his Strictly professional partner Karen Hauer was helping choreograph a special first dance for their wedding.

But Mark said: “We won’t be doing a choreographed dance on our wedding day. We’ll just be swaying to the music and being with each other.”

The Take Me Out spin-off show host has said throughout the series how shocked he has been to get so far as a novice dancer, and he will now face pop stars Frankie Bridge and Simon Webbe, EastEnders actor Jake Wood and TV presenter Caroline Flack in the semi-final.

Mark also admitted he is starting to set his sights on the final.

The former TOWIE star said: “I’d love to get to the final, it would be incredible, but I’ve gone well past my target and well past where I thought I would get. But of course I’d love to get to the final. It would be a dream come true.”

But he added the thing he is most looking forward to is making Michelle his wife.

Mark said: “I’m looking forward to next year because I’m getting married so it’s going to be a magical year.”
