Michelle Keegan And Mark Wright Talk Engagement
Corrie star reveals she thought he was joking when he went down on knee...
Giving their first interview as a couple to Hello magazine, they shared some of the details of the night that former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark popped the question.
Mark, 26, said: "It didn't take me long to realise that Michelle is everything I wanted."
And he admitted that he was feeling nervous as he hid the diamond ring he'd bought for her in their hotel safe in Dubai.
Michelle said she was confused when he went down on one knee.
"I thought he was joking at first and then he said come here. I started crying, and said yes, and then he started welling up as well. Then as we walked further down the beach I saw a table set up with lanterns and petals, and with two glasses of champagne."
And Mark revealed that he was determined to do things his own way.
"I rang my dad and said, 'What knee do I drop on?' He said, 'You can choose but I think it’s right.’ But left is my favourite side so I said I'm going to drop on my left.
"I'm superstitious, everything has to be done on the left."
