Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright got engaged in September 2013
"I think being a guy, with a wedding you can't really win because if you get involved you're told your ideas are wrong, and if you don't get involved you're told you don't care," said Mark.
"So you have to get involved basically and just accept that your ideas are not right and just help out when you can.
"But Michelle knows what she wants and it's her day. It's gonna be a good day whatever."

When quizzed about his future plans of starting a family, with Lorraine insisting that the good-looking pair had to have babies, Mark laughed, saying: "People do say that but I don't want to jinx it. I'm hoping we have nice children but as long as they're healthy, that's all that matters."
