by Sharnaz Shahid

Mark Wright has kicked off his 30th birthday celebrations in style, taking a trip to Miami with his wife Michelle Keegan. Taking to his Instagram page on Wednesday, the former TOWIE star appeared to be in great spirits as he cuddled up to his beautiful wife in the social media snap, which was simply captioned: "Tipsy, Pre birthday celebrations last night #MIAMI #stateside."

The radio DJ, who turns 30 on Friday, has been in Florida for the past few days to film a new TV show, although no details of latest project has been revealed. Meanwhile, Michelle has been receiving rave reviews for her starring role in ITV drama Tina and Bobby. The 29-year-old - who portrays former England captain Bobby Moore's wife Tina in the biopic - was even praised by her husband, who proudly tweeted: "She’s just special #Tina&Bobby #wow #loveit."

The new series recounts the life of the legendary England captain and his wife. Starting from their humble beginnings as young lovebirds, the drama then focuses on their dizzy heights of Bobby's superstardom. The lead role is played by Grantchester actor Lorne MacFadyen, while Patsy Kensit takes on Tina's mother Betty and David Bamber as England manager Alf Ramsey.

So excited!!! 🙌🏽🇺🇸 @universalorlando

Speaking exclusively to HELLO! magazine, Michelle recently said of the famous football couple: "Tina and Bobby worked in sync and I think Mark and I do. I always ask his opinion and he always asks mine. We talk things through – we're good at that."

Mark, a semi-professional footballer, was no doubt delighted when his wife landed the role. "He's a massive football fan and a West Ham supporter, so he was over the moon," said Michelle. "He was full of questions. He knew all the facts around Bobby's career but he found the personal side of his life really interesting."
