Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright reunited in Essex after star broke down in tears over death of his uncle from Covid

MICHELLE Keegan and Mark Wright headed out for takeaway drinks after reuniting in Essex.

The couple have been pictured for the first time since 34-year-old Mark broke down in tears over the death of his uncle from Covid.

Dressed all in grey with white trainers, Mark carried a healthy juice while his glamorous wife held four hot drinks.

Michelle looked adoringly at her other half as they caught up over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend.

She's been filming series three of Brassic in Manchester – more than 200 miles away from their home in Essex.

It's been a tough time for the couple who have dealing with a devastating family tragedy.

Mark has been reeling from six relatives getting the virus within days of each other when his beloved uncle Eddie died last month.

He's been supported by Michelle who urge him to go and hug his dad after the tragic death.

Revealing the horrific moment his Uncle Eddie died of coronavirus, Mark told The Sun: "It's hard to re-live it. I never thought I would have to do this but I think it's important to raise awareness.

"In the end you get the dreaded phone call. I burst into tears. At that point my attention went from it being my uncle to being my dad's brother.

"It was the first time in my life that I had to be there for my dad. I just went over to him and grabbed him and he put his head into my neck and cried.

"I just said to him: Dad, let it go."

The star warned: "My family never even mixed, they never even saw each other and they all got it at the same time."
