Michelle Keegan has opened up about having children in the future with her husband Mark Wright, revealing that she has "thought about" starting a family. In an interview with The Sunday People, she said: "I've thought about kids and we always say we want them but not yet. We are loving life. I'm 30 in June and I want to do something to celebrate it. Mark had about three parties, it lasted a month."

She also chatted about her marriage to Mark, and how their relationship is "better than ever" despite rumours that the pair were having marriage trouble. Calling the reports "frustrating", she said: "Why can't a woman work away and have a separate career from her husband and still have a good marriage? That's the frustrating thing. What do people think goes on? Everything is fine with us. We have separate careers. Why is it a bad thing?"

She continued: "I am married but I don't have to sit at home. That's the frustrating thing and it is going to happen again. Me and Mark know that. I've got to go away for work. But we know what to expect now. He will come visit me and it will be fine." She also gave an insight into her relationship with the Only Way is Essex star, revealing that they enjoy spending cosy nights in together, and are huge fans of the Netflix series The Crown. "Me and Mark love it," the former Coronation Street actress said. "We love doing things like that, cost nights in." She admitted she'd love to appear in a period drama, saying: "I would love to be on Downton… People will always think of me as Tina in Corrie. I'll never move away from that. But now people are starting to see me in other dramas and everyone is really positive."
