Clearly feeling guilty after the event, he told New! magazine: “The most important thing is your personal life, especially if you’re in a relationship. Your relationship comes first.”

Although reports say that they only said hello to each other, there is no doubt that Michelle would have found it difficult, especially being so far away.

The ex’s, who met on Towie, enjoyed a romance in 2010. It was also rumoured at the time that Mark cheated on Lauren Goodger with the stunning brunette.

It’s also nearing the time when Michelle prepares to leave her hubby’s side to film series three of Our Girl in Nepal and South Africa.

Despite Mark admitting that it’s going to be very “difficult” for him to be apart from his other half, he also said that “it doesn’t matter what the job is, you make it work.”

Opening up to Fabulous magazine recently, he admitted that he is frustrated with the constant gossip surrounding his marriage too.

“People won’t stop saying we are splitting up until Michelle gets pregnant. We do want to have kids but in our own time, not just yet”, he said.

“The rumours started when we were on our honeymoon. We just ignore it now. I saw one story about us never seeing each other when I was lying in bed with Michelle in South Africa!

“It was my idea not to take her ring with her because it’s something that could never be replaced. I don’t care about the cost, it’s the emotional value. But we’re rock solid.”

Gushing about how stunning she is, the reality star said Michelle’s “gorgeous 24/7”.

“She looks great with no make-up and jogging bottoms on, and she looks incredible when she gets dressed up for a smart event. I get completely overawed by how beautiful she is”, he added.

OK Mark, you’ve redeemed yourself.
