TOWIE star Mark Wright plans the future…in Hollywood!

The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright is contemplating his future on the successful ITV2 show after signing with a top Hollywood agent, I can reveal.
This week cheeky chappy Mark, 24, signed a deal with former William Morris agent John Ferriter who currently represents US acts including Ryan Seacrest, Piers Morgan, Amanda Holden and Cat Deeley.
Friends close to Mark says the ladies man, currently engaged to perma-tanned bore Lauren Goodger, is contemplating moving to Los Angeles now to avoid being typecast in the third series of the show. Get him!
A source close to Mark said: “Mark doesn’t know what he wants to do. He doesn’t just want to be seen as some reality show boy. He wants to forge a proper career for himself and prove people wrong.
“He studied at Sylvia Young stage school when he was younger and is by no means thick. He wants to be an actor and be taken seriously – and right now he’s not sure whether going back for another series of The Only Way Is Essex is the right move.”
Sources close to the star have also revealed Mark, who is represented by Myleene Klass and Kelly Brook’s agent Jonathan Shalit in the UK, turned down a £250,000 offer two weeks ago to appear on Celebrity Big Brother – even before his dense co-star Amy Childs had signed her deal to appear.
“The show wanted Mark on there to get ratings,” says the source. “He’s far more tabloid worthy and interesting and would guarantee good figures.
“But he decided against it off his own back. He really wants to be taken seriously in his career and have longevity. And the future could mean a move to LA. And escaping all things Essex. He just doesn’t know what to do right now. There are two other offers for solo TV shows on the table and the E! Network in the States is already interested in working with him.”
The Only Way Is Essex has been a runaway surprise hit for ITV2 since it premiered on the channel last October and regularly pulled in upwards of a million viewers – more than any other show on the channel. It even won a BAFTA this year and beat Downton Abbey and Sherlock.
Those of you who read me weekly who I can’t stand untalented reality wasters. So I urge mark to fly the nest. Give it your best shot to become an actor and have an actual career. I dare you.
