MARK Wright has gushed about his wife, Brassic actress Michelle Keegan saying he’s ‘grateful everyday’ that they are married.
His loving admission comes after a Covid scare across his family left him realising what he’s priorities in life were.
Earlier this month Mark revealed how his family had been living their own Covid nightmare.
His father Mark Snr, mother Carol and two uncles had all contracted the virus in what he described as ‘the scariest week of my life’ over New Year.
Mark explained how his dad ‘wasn’t the same mentally’ while two of his uncles are still fighting the coronavirus, saying, “I am praying they keep making small improvements”.
“I’ve learnt what is most important in life, how important health is, how important family is. That is the number one happiness, the love around you,” he told Hello.
“I am just grateful that I get to have her [Michelle] by my side every day, to have someone I can share my life with.
“To be with Michelle during these times has been incredible, and I’m forever grateful for that.”
The radio presenter, 33, revealed the entire family was looking forward to the upcoming nuptials of his sister Jessica to William Lee-Kemp.
“There will be a light at the end of the tunnel and it seems like we are getting there. We all want it to happen for her and to have all our family and friends together,” he explained.
“A big gathering when we can all start to be in a better place.”
It’s handy Mark is grateful for Michelle as the pair – who married in 2015 – self-isolate at their Essex home.
They are staying home after 11 members of the Crawley squad tested positive with Covid.
His agent Jonathan Shalit confirmed to SunSport: “Mark is of course following all guidelines.

“Consequently he has had to postpone his daily BBC 2 fitness show, Workout the Wright Way, by a week, which was due to start next Monday.
“Also will be broadcasting his daily Heart evening radio show from home, which he did last night until, he is allowed out.”
The 34-year-old made his professional football debut earlier this month for Crawley when he came on as a late sub in the stunning 3-0 FA Cup win against Premier League Leeds.
It meant he had finally realised his dream of playing professional football at the age of 33.
