A source has told The Daily Star Sunday that the married couple have been looking for their new place and even have their eye on extra space so they can have children.

“Mark and Michelle are currently house hunting in the Hollywood Hills,” the source said.

“They have a budget of around £2m and have stipulated a least three bedrooms for when they start a family.”

Mark has been enjoying success as an entertainment reporter for US TV channel Extra, interviewing a string of A-List stars with Kristen Bell and Daniel Radcliffe among those he’s posed with on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Michelle earned positive reviews for her starring role in BBC1 drama Our Girl last year.

Their work demands meant that the pair were apart for eight months last year though, while Michelle filmed Our Girl in Kuala Lumpur.

All of that time apart has led to speculation over their relationship, but the Daily Star Sunday’s source claims that their new home is part of  bid to stay together.

“Mark and Michelle are still very much in love but being apart for so much of their marriage did put a strain on it,” the source said. “They’ve both agreed they couldn’t have another year living separate lives.”

With no current long-running work commitments, former Coronation Street star Michelle would be free to try her hand at ‘breaking America’, and the source suggests Michelle has been busy already.

“Mark has had a huge career break with his job with Extra. Michelle is the one who is more flexible now so she is going to move to Los Angeles and fly back for any UK roles,” the source said.

“She’s been auditioning for roles including a big new drama on American network ABC and a guest role in the show This Is Us, as well as meeting agents, talent managers and top casting directors.”

Earlier this month, Mark revealed that he’d still love to work in Britain, but sees LA as where his future lies for now.

“If I get offered the next big Saturday night show in England I would go home to do, it but then I would stay here,” he said.

“Before I would be DJ-ing in Ibiza, then going to Mallorca on Sunday, then doing an interview on This Morning.

“Now it is one job and it is lovely. I love it here and Michelle is with me now. I’m really happy.”
