Mark Wright has insisted fiancée Michelle Keegan won't be jealous of him sharing the dancefloor with a gorgeous pro partner on Strictly Come Dancing.

The ex-TOWIE star is among the famous faces who will compete for the Mirrorball Trophy on the brand new series of the BBC One show.

Mark will be donning his sequins and sparkle and dancing up a storm with a yet to be named professional dance partner – but he's adamant Michelle isn't the jealous type.

"It's not even a question," he told The Mirror.

If anything, Mark's appearance on Strictly will benefit Michelle too as he'll be learning some key dance skills for their upcoming wedding!

"One of my biggest fears all my life is my first dance at a wedding," said Mark. "When you've absolutely no rhythm and you are with someone who has, you're going to look an absolute doughnut."

Mark and Michelle became engaged in Dubai last year and, earlier this week, they marked the one-year anniversary of that special moment.

Michelle tweeted: "So, today it's been officially one year since I said 'yes'… So excited for the next year!!! #mrswright."

It's thought they will marry in the UK next year.

Strictly Come Dancing kicks off with its launch show on Sunday, 7 September at 8pm.
