Michelle and Mark have been enjoying spending some quality time together in LA, where Mark is now based for his job on Extra TV. The couple were forced to spend eight months apart last year because of their work commitments – Michelle was busy filming Our Girl – but are clearly relishing their reunion. After spending Christmas together in their UK home, they jetted back to the US in time for New Year, and have remained Stateside ever since.

Former TOWIE star Mark has previously hinted that Michelle could ultimately end up moving to LA on a permanent basis. He told The Telegraph: "We'll see what happens. I think if you're an actress you want to come to Hollywood, right? But that’s not massively what she’s thinking right now. She'll come out here, we'll enjoy the sunshine and see how we go."

Shortly after landing his dream job on Extra, Mark admitted he was lonely without Michelle – who he married in May 2015. Speaking to the Sun in October, he said: "My wife's away working, we can't get to each other right now because she's working solidly every day like I am, too." He added: "I'm without my friends, without my family, without my wife - it's always going to be a bit lonely but I'm not complaining just yet."
