Michelle Keegan was left stunned as her sister-in-law Jess Wright asked her to be one of her bridesmaids in a very unique way.
The former Corrie actress was given a huge surprise as Mark Wright’s sister turned up at their doorstep in Chigwell, Essex, to hand out an invite to her wedding.
The Mancunian actress, 33, was in total shock as Jess showered her with flowers and balloons while keeping things safe with social distancing.
She shared a heartfelt clip to her Instagram, where Michelle appeared to have just woken up and was dressed in her robe, but looked amazed as she was asked to become one of Jess’ 15 bridesmaids.
“I’m actually shaking!” the ex-Our Girl star announced from her doorstep, as Jess filmed her reaction from a distance.
The pair began laughing as Michelle was caught off-guard at her £2million home, but was overwhelmed by the invite.
Michelle added: “Aww Jess, I want to hug you!” during the emotional moment.
Bride-to-be Jess started the video by driving to her sister Natalya’s house and dropping off an invite.
The young model, 19, burst into tears as Jess asked if she could be her maid of honour.
Jess and Mark’s youngest sister read the emotional message out loud, saying: “So Natalya, as I become I, as I become a bride, I need you by my side, please be my maid of honour.”
They shared a tear-jerking exchange before Jess drove off and revealed what she was up to.
Taking to Instagram to share her delight about the day, she wrote: “Asking my bridesmaids during a pandemic…
“When rules were slightly lifted, I felt this was the best way of telling my nearest & dearest, that I would love them to be my bridesmaids. Yes there are a lot however, I have a lot of best friends, cousins, & sisters!”
Influencer Jess is set to marry her businessman fiancé William in June 2021.
He popped the question on the peaks of Courchevel, France, in February after 13 months of dating.
The loved-up pair confirmed they will be getting married in a beach ceremony in Spain.
Jess told Hello! magazine: “I’ve been dreaming of a fairytale wedding since I was little, when I used to dress up in my mum’s net curtains.
“Now I can’t wait for the moment I’ve been imagining for so long, walking up the aisle in a fabulous dress to marry Will.”
