MARK Wright and Michelle Keegan's romance began in a Dubai club in 2012 the way many others do – with a steamy snog.

The pair met when Mark was the guest appearance as the famous N'Dulge club at Atlantis Palm hotel, fresh from his split with high school sweetheart and The Only Way Is Essex co-star Lauren Goodger.

In pictures, taken at the time, Michelle – who was holidaying with pals – cuddled up to Mark, before one fellow reveller caught Michelle – who at that time was a Coronation Street actress – and Mark snogging.

Mark held Michelle's face in his hands, while they kissed and danced together.

Their embrace came five months after Michelle ended her engagment to The Wanted's Max George.

On their return to the UK, the pair reunited and began a relationship which is still going strong today, with Michelle later choosing to quit the ITV soap and move to Essex for Mark and the two struggling with a long-distance romance when Mark moved to Hollywood.

However the pair are now married and in the process of building their £1.3million dream home.

The two have decided to sell the house they spent lockdown in, a five-bedroom mansion in Essex.

Mark and Michelle's property, which features huge chandeliers, a roll top bath and landscaped gardens, is a detached home spread across 3,000sq ft and three floors.

Potential owners will be able to access the property through electrically operated gates.

The married couple purchased the home in 2013 and have kept it pretty much under wraps since then, just giving their fans just a few sneak peeks over the years.

Mark was recently spotted on the site of their new dream pad.

The ex-reality star purchased the property in October last year before demolishing the farmhouse standing on it in July.

Mark and Michelle submitted plans in February replace it with a vast Georgian-style home.

The architect drawings reveal the house will feature a ground floor bar, gym, TV room, study, outdoor swimming pool – and of course the playroom for any future offspring.
