Mark Wright confirms he is taking part in Strictly Come Dancing

Former TOWIE star is sixth contestant to sign up for the celebrity dancing competition

Mark Wright has signed up for Strictly Come Dancing. 


Yep, the former TOWIE star turned TV and radio presenter is the sixth contestant to reveal he’s taking part in the celebrity dancing contest. 

“Doing Strictly is going to be so completely different from anything I’ve done before. I’m the sort of guy who loves to bust out some moves at a party but I’m certainly not a natural dancer. Any of my friends would tell you that – they call me Markey no moves,” he says. 

“I’m genuinely petrified about dancing on national telly, but Strictly is such an amazing show to be a part of and I can’t wait to get stuck in and give it my all.”

Wright is certainly no stranger to reality contests, finishing as runner-up in 2011’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! He also presented spin-off show Take Me Out: The Gossip on ITV. 

Mark will be up against a whole bunch of willing celebrity dancers including the confirmed Simon Webbe, Thom Evans, Alison Hammond, Judy Murray and Frankie Bridge. 


Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC1 soon
