Happy Mondays star Bez may have declared his interest in Coronation Street beauty Michelle Keegan a little too late when he guest edited The Diary page yesterday.
For Michelle has now gone public for the first time with her new beau, The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright.
The couple (pictured) have been spied in Dubai, London and Manchester in recent weeks, but had been very coy about their relationship status.
Michelle has not been seen with another chap since her painful split with Swinton’s The Wanted star Max George last year. But there appeared no doubt about their togetherness when Michelle was pictured hand-in-hand with Mark at his birthday celebrations in the capital at the weekend.
Meanwhile Mark’s TOWIE mates have been adding fuel to the fire, saying they’re already calling the new showbiz power couple ‘Marchelle’.
The Diary wonders if the pair will be together on the red carpet at the National TV Awards in London tomorrow. Either way, Michelle will get the flashbulbs popping at the bash – where she’s nominated for Best Dramatic Performance.
