Former TOWIE star Mark Wright could be jetting off to the States for 18 months after being offered a brand new presenting role.

But this would mean Mark, 30, would be away from wife Michelle Keegan for a long period of time.

The star has insisted the two are determined to make it work.

During his appearance on Sunday Brunch, Mark said: “I go back out to the US next week. I’ve also got another show I’m looking at. It’s a big commitment. It’s 18 months and if I decide to do it, it starts in two months.

“It would mean moving to American for 18 months. It’s a big commitment and I don’t know if I’m going to do it yet.”

He added: “Michelle’s currently filming abroad now for a few more months and she finishes at the time this starts, so that will kind of be her turn to travel to where I’m working.

“I’ve been going out to see her lots.”

But speaking about their long-distance relationship Mark said: “I just think you make it work. You just have to put that time aside.

“It keeps it exciting because you get to travel the world together and go and visit each other’s work. It’s good.”

He then gushed: “She really is the most incredible woman. I love her so much. We just make it work.”
