Michelle Keegan has shown her support for husband Mark Wright after he made his debut for Crawley Town in their match against Leeds United.
The former Towie star made his debut in the 90th minute in the face off on Sunday, which was won by Crawley Town 3-0.
The radio presenter is giving his prfoessional football career another shot having retired aged 20 to pursue a career in TV.
After the game, Mark took to Instagram calling it ‘a day I will never forget’.
Brassic star Michelle, who has been married to Mark since 2015, celebrated with him writing in the comments: ‘What a day!’ adding a love heart and raised hands emoji.
In his long, heartfelt message, the Extra TV host hoped his family would ‘cherish’ seeing him out on the pitch.
‘Today at 33, after much hard work and hours of extra training to make it possible, even if it was for a few minutes, I made my professional debut against the giants Leeds United’, Mark wrote.
‘To make it even more special my brother and best pal also made his debut for @officialcrawleytownfc today, to do this with him will be a moment our whole family will cherish forever.
‘However most importantly, the boys that started that game were absolutely incredible, they beat a very strong Leeds United team 3-0 and every single one of them were sensational. I’m very proud to call myself a crawley player.
‘Thank you for all your support.’
His new BBC series Mark Wright: The Last Chance follows the reality TV star after he signed to Crawley Town in December.
The sporting debut comes at a difficult time for the TV star as his dad has been battling coronavirus since New Year’s Eve.
Speaking to Good Morning Britain on Monday he revealed how his dad had been affected by the virus and urged people to follow government guidelines.
He said on the programme: ‘My dad is out of hospital now. One of my dad’s other brothers is in hospital, he’s doing okay on oxygen. My dad’s other brother is not in a good place, he’s in a critical condition.
‘It’s not until you see it first hand you that realise, “I need to buck up my ideas”.
‘I’ve got friends that are conspiracy theorists saying “We don’t need to lock down”. I tell them the government, whatever their role, they know more than you. If they are telling you to do this, do it.
‘If you get to my point where you’re looking at potentially losing family members, you will regret doing what you’re doing. So listen to the rules, stay at home.’
