Michelle Keegan has been married to The Only Way Is Essex hunk Mark Wright since 2015 – but before their romance, the former Coronation Street actress was engaged to The Wanted hunk Max George.
Max, 29, and Our Girl star Michelle, 31, first announced they were together in January 2011, and were engaged just months later.
But it just wasn’t supposed to be for the genetically-blessed couple, as they called time on their romance in August 2012.
While Michelle is happily married, it seems Max is also very happy wth his girlfriend of four years, Carrie, who he lives in Vegas with with their two dogs, Mocha and Derek.
But speaking exclusively to OK! Magazine, Max proved there were no hard feelings with Michelle, and said he was happy for her success.
“She’s a nice, wonderful girl and I wish her all the best,” he exclusively told OK! Magazine. “I’m happy for her. She’s doing brilliantly.”

Max previously opened up about the downfall of his and Michelle’s relationship.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: “I had a real problem with drinking too much and that was, without doubt, the downfall of our relationship.
“I was drinking more to forget the fact I was with someone who wasn’t making me that happy.
“Michelle is seen as like Britain’s Sweetheart nowadays, I understand it might have looked as if there was something to hide, [but] there was no betrayal in terms of cheating.”
He continued: “’I tried to kid myself it would work out OK, but the moment she said she didn’t want to be engaged anymore I know that something was wrong.
“It was a whirlwind. I don’t regret it because you shouldn’t regret anything you do. You learn.”
