Mark Wright burst on to our TV screens in October 2010 and has since gone on to become one of the most popular, and talked about media personalities in the UK. His ‘empire’ now includes a successful TV presenting career, his own Heart FM radio show, a top selling calendar, men’s aftershave & women’s perfume, an incredible 2 millions followers on Twitter and he’s soon to be announced as the face (and body) of a major men’s fashion retailer.
But how did he get to this point? After playing professional football for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Southend United and representing his country as a member of the England under-18 national team, he spent several years as one of the most successful club promoters in London before a TV producer saw huge potential and persuaded him to take part in a new TV show she was developing that would break the mould for entertainment television and has since gone on to be one of the most popular shows of recent years; The Only Way Is Essex.
Mark is currently presenting 'Take Me Out: The Gossip' for ITV2 and 'The Dengineers' for CBBC.
