The 25-year-old beauty, who plays Tina McIntyre on Corrie, didn't add any more info about the engagement – and there's been no picture of the all-important ring yet!

Mark confirmed the engagement via his own Twitter, as well, writing: "Thank you to everyone for your messages about our engagement. It means so much."

He has also been thanking friends who have congratulated him via Twitter, including former TOWIE co-star Amy Childs, who wrote: "Congratulations to @MarkWright_ and @michkeegan on your engagement , so happy for you both."

His elder sister Jessica earlier tweeted her excitement at Michelle becoming her sister-in-law.

Jessica wrote: "So pleased I can now express my congratulations about Mark & Michelle being engaged. So happy for them. Amazing couple, love them both lots."

Mark's mum Carol Wright added: "Never been so happy to tweet this tweet yes my son @MarkWright_ is engaged to the lovely @michkeegan we can't wait to celebrate with you ."

Mark and Michelle began dating after bumping into each other in Dubai over New Year's Eve 2012. Michelle later said of the night: "We are really happy... I'd met Mark before, but a group of us met up, and it was an amazing night. We went to a festival on the beach and to a club and stayed up all night. Was it a night that changed my life? Perhaps."

According to The Mirror, the couple of nine months will host a star-studded wedding next summer – and Mark has apparently been planning the proposal for some time, even designing the engagement ring himself.

A source said: "Both are blissfully in love and Michelle is utterly made-up!"

Congratulations to Mark and Michelle!
