Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright ring in new year with a kiss

The couple lived apart for much of 2017 due to work commitments.

Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright celebrated the new year with a kiss after spending months apart as they worked on separate projects.

The couple, who were recently reunited after Keegan finished filming on the new series of Our Girl in Nepal and South Africa, spent a romantic evening together in Los Angeles.

Wright, who now lives in the US city where he works for entertainment show Extra, shared a video on his Instagram stories of the couple kissing alongside an emoji of a smiley face with heart-shaped eyes.

“I’m so proud of you, words can’t even explain. It’s going to be the best Christmas ever !! I love you so much my little trooper x”
