Mark Wright has defended his wife Michelle Keegan against trolls who made nasty comments about her weight.

The former Only Way Is Essex star married the Our Girl actress in 2015.

And, speaking on his sister Jess Wright's podcast Girls No Filter, Mark revealed that a picture he posted of Michelle on Instagram led to abuse from trolls about her slim figure.

He said: "I posted a picture of us last week and underneath in the comments one of them said, 'Michelle, you need to eat'.

"But she does eat, I see her eat. She works bloody hard to get that body. I see her at the gym running and sweating, so people haven't got the right to say that."

Earlier this year, the ex-Coronation Street actress addressed the couple's relationship in the public eye following Mark's return from working in the US.

Michelle said previously: "Having him home... It's nice just doing normal things: going to the deli for breakfast, getting a takeaway on a Saturday night, planning what Netflix series we're going to watch, travelling back and forth between Manchester and Essex to see our families, and having that flexibility."
