Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright CONFIRM they're engaged, Twitter explodes with celebrity congratulations

We ADORE this celebrity couple and were so excited to wake up to their rumoured happy news this morning.

And now Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright have CONFIRMED that they are indeed engaged, and Twitter has erupted with celebrity congratulations.

File photo dated 18/05/13 of Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan as the Coronation Street star is quitting Manchester … While it was rumoured that Mark, 26, had popped the question to Michelle, 26, during a holiday to Dubai neither of them had commented on the claims.

Mark hinted that all was VERY well in the Marchelle camp by tweeting: "Just woke up in the UK from such an amazing holiday at the atlantis in Dubai. Thanks to for making it so special."

It was Michelle, however, who actually confirmed the news. She took to Twitter to say: "THANKYOU for all the lovely messages, and yes it's true and I are engaged !! We are so SO happy :-) xxx"

Shortly afterwards, Mark too acknowledged that they're officially engaged.

He said: "Thankyou to everyone for your messages about our engagement. It means so much."

Before long, Twitter had gone wild with celebrities quickly tweeting their congratulations to the pair who have been together for nine months.

Mark's sister and TOWIE star, Jess Wright said: "So pleased I can now express my congratulations about Mark & Michelle being engaged soooo happy for them. Amazing couple love them both lots"

Mark's former TOWIE co-star, Amy Childs, was quick to follow suit.She said: "Congratulations to and on your engagement , so happy for you both xxx"

Glamour model Nicola McLean also shared her congratulations, saying: "Congratulations and so happy for you both xxxx"

Mark Wright's mum Carol, who also stars in TOWIE, seemed over the moon about her son's news, saying: "Never been so happy to tweet this tweet yes my son is engaged to the lovely we can't wait to celebrate with you x"

Carol's response got us wondering what Mark Wright's former fiancee, Lauren Goodger, makes of the whole thing.

However, it seems she's chosen to ignore the engagement and is going shopping with her boyfriend instead.

Her latest tweet reads: "Me and jake having a shopping day! Bluewater me thinks haven't been there in ages." [sic]
