The couple have faced scrutiny over their relationship with some claiming their marriage was on the rocks.

But former Coronation Street star Michelle was quick to slam the rumours.

She told TV Life magazine: "Are the rumours rubbish? Yeah. We are all very good and everything is fine. Our marriage is going really well.

"We’re happy. I don’t want to constantly say ‘we’re happy, we’re fine’, because why validate it? If we’re happy, we’re happy."

Mark also spoke on Lorraine about hosting Take Me Out: The Gossip which is set to make a comeback this weekend.

Speaking about the drama-filled show he said: "There's tears - from boys and girls, loads of love matches.

"You can’t keep up with it!"

The TV star added: "But when you’re there and part of it, you forget it’s a job."
