"The 1st 2 decs going on the tree makes it extra special!... Amazing year #engagement #newhome #lucky @MarkWright_," wrote the beautiful brunette alongside a snap of Mark and Michelle's hands placing glamorous decorations on the tree.
Michelle's stunning engagement ring – thought to be a five-carat diamond – can be seen dazzling in the photograph.
Mark also took to Twitter to share an action shot of his fiancée preparing the tree, writing: "Its the most wonderful time of the year, setting up the tree, mulled wine & Xmas cd on. Love it @michkeegan."
The rest of us were even more inspired to get the tinsel out when Michelle, 26, revealed a beautifully finished Christmas tree complete with cream decorations and twinkling fairy lights.
"The end result!! @MarkWright_ Not bad" a content Michelle tweeted with a winking face. Aware of being an early bird, she then added, "And yep I know exactly what month it is... It's November and Christmas is in December! But I've started early!.. .30 days to goooo!"
Michelle, who made a glamorous appearance on Jonathan Ross' chat show on Saturday night where she was presented with a copy of Mark's new calendar, announced her engagement to the former The Only Way Is Essex star favourite and TV presenter in September.
Sources close to the pair confirmed Mark went down on one knee during a romantic holiday in Dubai, the exotic location where they got together nine months previously, and Michelle excitedly tweeted the news.
"THANK YOU for all the lovely messages, and yes it's true @markwright_ and I are engaged!! We are so SO happy :-) xxx," wrote the bride-to-be.
The lovebirds have since spoken exclusively to HELLO! in their first ever interview as a couple. "It didn't take me long to realise that Michelle is everything I wanted," said a smitten Mark.
