Mark gave Good Morning Britain hosts Ranvir Singh – who herself has ran a marathon – and Paul Brand an update on his training.

As Ranvir asked if Michelle, also 35, would be there for the London Marathon this autumn, he said: “My wife will hopefully be there to support me.”

Talking of why the ex Coronation Street star wasn’t his London Marathon buddy, he added: “She wouldn’t do it.

“She would prefer to just watch.”

Michelle has been filming new drama Ten Pound Poms Down Under.

Radio DJ host Mark has jetted to Australia to visit the actress, and only flew back to home turf a few days ago.

He added to GMB: “Australia was amazing.

“They have a healthy way of life there.”

Talking of his training, he added: “It’s their winter there so it was cooler.

“I only got back the other day but I went for my first run last night.”

Both amateur and elite runners will take to the streets of London raising millions for charity along every step of the gruelling 26.2 mile course for this year’s event.

The 26.2 mile route starts near Blackheath in Greenwich, passing landmarks such as the Cutty Sark, the Shard, Tower Bridge, and the London Eye.
