Secrets of Michelle and Mark’s SECOND honeymoon revealed!

Why hang about?!

| Updated:

Most couples wait 20 or 30 years before they book a second honeymoon, but Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan are apparently planning theirs before their second anniversary!

And why not? If you’ve got the time, money and inclination, do it every year we say.

It seems Michelle has been inspired by a location in South Africa, where she spent a chunk of this year filming BBC drama Our Girl.

The Sunday People have revealed that the couple – who married in May 2015 –  are looking forward to a romantic safari trip.

The brunette beauties will, reportedly, enjoy a cosy break at Moditlo River Lodge – where Call the Midwife stars Helen George and Jack Ashton fell in love while filming the Christmas special.

The paper adds that a source at the resort confirmed they ­reserved a ­honeymoon-style suite, adding: “This is a romantic lodge.”

Michelle is also rumoured to be looking for a house in South Africa – following news she could be spending up to eight months of 2017 filming the next run of Our Girl.

The brunette beauty is said to want a ‘modern, airy flat’ in Sea Point, Clifton or Camps Bay in Cape Town, according to The Sun.

A source told the newspaper: “The producers have warned that filming could take as long as eight months so she doesn’t want to be stuck in hotels like she was during the second series.”

It sounds as though the Manchester lass has well and truly fallen in love with the country and its wildlife – and is keen to become an ambassador for an animal or conservation charity.

With the former Corrie star set to spend two thirds of the year away from the Essex home she shares with her hubby, we really can’t blame them wanting to spend some quality time together.

A second honeymoon will also give them chance to stick two fingers up to all the negativity that has been written about their relationship over the past year.

Trouble started when Michelle was pictured out without her wedding ring, which she explained was because she’d removed it for filming and then gone straight out after work.

But the seed was sewn and more rumours of trouble in the marriage circulated after Mich was snapped looking cosy with hunky co-star Luke Pasqualino.

They were actually filming Our Girl at the time – proven when the scenes depicted in the pictures played out on screen. Zzzzzzzz…

Anyway, we hope Michelle and Mark have a wild time on their break!
