Michelle Keegan cut a trendy figure as she supported her husband Mark Wright as he competed in the London marathon on Sunday.

The former Coronation Street star beamed from ear to ear as she greeted the ex-TOWIE star, 35, along with his mother Carol, 62, at the finish line.
Mark used his Instagram Stories throughout the day to update his fans with selfie-style videos, but didn’t reveal his place in the race.
The star, who runs with FLORA for the Get Towns Active campaign, was forced to abandon last year’s marathon after tearing a calf muscle.
He recently admitted he was “nervous” that he could injure himself again ahead of this year’s race and was “devastated” when he had to retire last year.

He said: “It was devastating at the time. I had trained quite a lot and was really looking forward to it. I went out on the day and saw the atmosphere.”
Speaking to The Mirror, he added: “I’m nervous because I could hurt myself every time I go for a run or do a session. I am afraid that I will hurt myself.
“I just have to keep my fingers crossed, keep working hard, keep up the recovery, ice baths, etc.”
The TV presenter joined more than 40,000 runners who tackled the grueling 26.2-mile route from Greenwich Park to the Mall near Buckingham Palace.

Before the mass event began this morning, there was a moving rendition of the national anthem in honor of the late Queen Elizabeth II, who died last month.
After the ceremony, the elite men and crowd group were launched by England Lions Leah Williamson, Ellen White and Jill Scott.
Many of the participants will do so for charity, often with moving personal stories behind why they are putting their bodies to the test after spending months and sometimes years preparing for the big event.
As participants make their way past the crowds, they will also see the capital’s landmarks including Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, the London Eye, Westminster and of course Buckingham Palace down the stretch.
Equally iconic are the now-famous costumes some runners don when they take part, with giant sunflowers, Minions and even Big Ben’s Elizabeth Tower all poised to draw attention as they move around the course .
Wheelchair racing saw early success for the Brits as David Weir and Eden Rainbow-Cooper in the men’s and women’s respectively.
