Michelle Keegan has admitted she is "so proud" of her fiancé Mark Wright following his success on Strictly Come Dancing.

Despite never having danced before, Mark made it all the way to Saturday night's final of the BBC One show and Michelle couldn't be more delighted.

The Coronation Street actress has supported her man all the way and has now thanked the thousands of fans who did the same.

Taking to Twitter after Mark finished in fourth place, Michelle gushed: I'm SO proud of my @MarkWright_ I just want to say thankyou so much to u guys out there that helped him on this journey. #soemotional."

Earlier, Michelle had been urging her followers to pick up the phone and vote for the former TOWIE star and his professional partner Karen Hauer.

"Please everyone vote for @MarkWright_ and @karen_hauer @bbcstrictly xx," she said.

Now this year's series is over, Mark and Michelle should get to spend a little more time together.

Previously, they had struggled to see each other due to Michelle's filming with forthcoming TV show Ordinary Lives and Mark's gruelling dance training.

There's also the tiny matter of a wedding to plan for! The couple are due to tie-the-knot next year so no doubt have lots of things to get in order.

One thing is for sure though, their first dance is bound to be impressive!
