Mark's fiancée, Emmerdale star Laura Norton - who plays Kerry Wyatt - was said to be in tears in the public gallery.
Following the verdict, the former Heartbeat star said: "I really am grateful to the jury for proving my innocence and especially for proving the innocence of my loved ones, who've had to endure this awful ordeal with me this last year.
"I'm looking forward to getting back to our engagement and my career, which has been on hold."
