Strictly Come Dancing star Mark Wright has asked professional partner Karen Hauer to choreograph the first dance for his wedding day.

DJ Mark has said before that he hopes his Strictly moves will help him prepare for his wedding and now, it sounds like the Essex boy is planning to showcase his new found love of dancing with fiancée Michelle Keegan on their big day.

Hoping to wow his guests with a memorable first dance, Mark has asked his partner, Karen, to devise his and Michelle's special moment on the dancefloor when they eventually tie the knot. Aww!

Revealing her celeb partner's plans to The Mirror, Karen - who is engaged to fellow Strictly star Kevin Clifton - said she and Kevin will hopefully be involved in the couple's magical moment.

Karen said: "They want it to be as romantic as possible but at the same time very crowd-pleasing. They want a couple of lifts... I was like, 'You have to practice a lift with me first'."

In the middle of her own wedding plans, Karen said she and Mark have been bonding over their upcoming nuptials in between rehearsals.

Earlier this month, Mark was forced to deny he was planning to wed Michelle at a lavish country house in Norfolk. The former TOWIE star took to Twitter to quash the reports, stating he had made up the location to fool someone who was listening into a private conversation.

He said: "I told my friend a place I am getting married next year and now it's in the press. Well guess what? I told my friend the wrong place because I can't be honest in case this happens."

Making sure their wedding venue is kept a secret, Mark and Michelle haven't given away any details when it comes to their big day, apart from revealing a date has been set for some time next year.

The couple announced they were set to wed after Mark proposed to Michelle while holidaying in Dubai in September last year.

Confirming their engagement shortly after, Michelle said she was "so happy" to be marrying Mark.
