They spend most of their relationship on different sides of the Atlantic, which means sometimes Michelle Keegan has to make do with date nights without her husband, Mark Wright.
And on Thursday night she had one with her brother and male pal, Anthony Cooper.
The My Girl actress took to Instagram to show off videos from her night at famous Chigwell restaurant, Sheesh.
Captioning it “date night”, Michelle tagged in her brother, Andrew, 29, and Anthony, as they enjoyed an epic-looking meal and performance from the House of Funk dance group.
The restaurant also posted a video of Michelle, 31, as she arrived at the venue.
They asked her if she was ready for the show.
The TV star confirmed she was: “So excited”.
The Essex restaurant is popular among celebrities, particularly the cast of The Only Way is Essex.
Love Island stars Adam and Zara also recently posed for pictures there.
Mark and Michelle have also enjoyed regular nights out there together – when he’s been in the country.
Meanwhile, Mark has returned to work as a presenter for US entertainment show Extra.
He posted a hilarious video of himself interviewing the one and only Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe is promoting her new range of activewear with Essex native Emma Grede.
The three laughed and joked over the Essex accent, with Mark, 31, encouraging the famous reality star to try it out.
The former TOWIE star captioned the video: “When I got @khloekardashian to take off @emmagrede and my essex accent. Not too bad at all !!
She didn’t do too well, but fans loved it anyway, writing: “Ahhhhh this is why i love Khole a living legend 💖💖”.
Mark and Michelle, who have been married three years, are apart again, following a quick holiday to Spain last week.
TV star Mark shared videos from BH Mallorca, at the Island Beach Club, where he was performing a DJ set, as his friends and wife cheered him on.
The group, which included the stars’ close friends, Rachael Antal, Chrissy Carroll and Will Lee-Kemp, then took a boat trip.
Mark shared a series of videos of the sea whizzing past, while Michelle and her friends hung off the back of the boat, soaking up some sun.
