Mark Wright will soon be leaving the UK behind and taking up residence in the States after landing a job as a correspondent on entertainment series Extra.
The former TOWIE star, 30, recently returned from Los Angeles after completing a stint on the show and has now been offered a position as a more permanent face.
It’s been said that the job will see Mark host the show every night, seven times a week – meaning he will need to move to America for the next year.
Talking about landing the role, Mark said: “I feel so honoured to be given a job on such a massive show in America, interviewing the biggest stars in the world, and working alongside Mario Lopez who I watched and loved growing up.
“Lisa G, the boss at EXTRA, didn’t know me before meeting her. I asked for a meeting, and she believed in me from seeing my showreel.”
“She gave me a chance by allowing me to interview Mariah Carey and from that she has now given me this amazing opportunity to work on the show full time. It’s all a bit surreal.
“The UK will always be my home, but right now America is the path that has opened up for me, and I have to follow that,” he continued.
But the question is, will wife Michelle Keegan join her hubby in the big move overseas? She has spoken in the past of giving the States a try, but may already be
Mark and Michelle, who married in 2015, have spent the majority of this year away from each other due to their work commitments.
As Mark has been trying to build his Hollywood career former Corrie star Michelle has been filming in South Africa for the brand new series of BBC’s Our Girl.
The pair were recently reunited to belatedly celebrate Michelle’s 30th birthday, which was back in June, in sunny Majorca.
Michelle was whisked away by her pals to enjoy a break in the sun and her hubby joined shortly after.
The sweet couple cuddled up to each other as they enjoyed a night out.
Michelle’s BFF and cousin Katie Fearnehough shared a snap of her and Michelle together with the caption: “Golden hour for my golden girl. Late 30th birthday surprises for this one @michkeegan god I have missed her.”
After a day out with her pals Michelle met up with Mark as they tanned their beach bods and enjoyed some quality couple time.
Mark also performed as a DJ at a club on the island.
