Michelle Keegan has been away in Australia filming Ten Pound Poms for the BBC but behind-the-scenes she has marked a special personal milestone.

The Fool Me Once actress, 36, celebrated her ninth wedding anniversary with her ex-TOWIE star husband Mark Wright on Friday.

The Heart Radio host posted a gorgeous photo from his wedding day with Michelle to mark the day which was captioned: "Best 9 years of my life. Happy anniversary babe."

Michelle looked radiant in a bespoke white mermaid gown designed by Galia Lahav at Browns Bride which featured a Queen Anne neckline, lacy capped sleeves, and a fitted bodice.

Mark and Michelle have swapped the snow for the sun in recent weeks as the Our Girl star continues to work down under. They were seen visiting a winery in the Hunter Valley in New South Wales on one of Michelle's down days.
