TOWIE: Mark Wright will travel the globe in new show Wright Off the Beaten Track

A new ITV2 six-part series will see the reality TV show star look for exotic locations and people to invite to extravagant parties

Wright off the Beaten Track will see The Only Way is Essex heartthrob Mark Wright (also featured in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!) travel the globe and throw wild, decadent parties for various groups of people in different locations.


During the six episodes, Wright will be faced the tasks such as throwing an America fraternity party and a Harlem block party, and we’ll see if his Essex event-throwing skills translate to people around the world.

“I know the Essex party scene inside out but I’ve no idea what to expect about the people I’ll be meeting or the parties I’ll be throwing,” Wright said.

“Not since leaving the jungle have I been put in a situation that feels completely out of my comfort zone, but I’m determined to take on whatever challenge comes my way.”

ITV were interested in putting Mark in bizarre social situations, and out of his comfort zone. Kate Maddigan, Commissioning Editor for ITV, explained: “This really is Mark Wright as he’s never been seen before. In completely different social and cultural surroundings, I can’t wait to see whether he can hold his nerve, keep his cool and put on a party that has the Mark magic touch.”
