Michelle Keegan is "determined" to spend more time with husband Mark Wright in the New Year.

The 30-year-old actress has had a hectic work schedule over the past few months, which has seen her jet to South Africa, Malaysia and Nepal to film "Our Girl", while her 30-year-old spouse has been in America hosting the entertainment channel "Extra", and though it has "not been easy" for the couple to spend time with one another, Michelle intends to change that in 2018.

Speaking to The Sunday Mirror newspaper about the couple and their plans for the future, a source said: "Michelle and Mark have spent most of the year apart and it has not been easy. But they are stronger than ever.

"In 2018, Michelle is determined they don't spend as much time away from one another."

Although the pair are across different corners of the globe, they are still very supportive of one another and their careers.
