Mark recently defended his relationship with wife Michelle saying they ‘always makes it work’ despite their busy schedules.

The influencer – who married the Our Girl actress in 2015 – said they ‘both work hard’ but ‘see each other plenty’. 

He told The Sun that the pair love going to the gym together as he also discussed his sister Natalya’s modelling career and how he is ‘done’ with reality TV. 

Discussing his marriage with brunette beauty Michelle, he said: ‘Nobody needs to know how much Michelle and I see each other.

‘We always make it work. It’s just a lot of travelling really, up and down the motorway. We both work hard, she works hard, there are no rules in life, are there?

‘I might see her for five days, go to work for a day then see her for another five, we see each other plenty, people don’t need to worry about that.’

In recent years Michelle has spent extended periods of time filming in locations such as Malaysia and South Africa for BBC drama Our Girl while Mark presented Extra in California.
