Mark Wright

Profession: Promotor and semi-professional footballer

Best known for: Wooing half of Essex in hit reality show TOWIE

Phobias: Rodents

Ladies man Mark will miss the attention he gets from his female co-stars in The Only Way Is Essex – but he’s looking forward to making some new acquaintances in the jungle even though he won’t be looking his best. “I like to leave the house looking sharp so it’s going to be very hard living without hair products and moisturiser,” he admits.

But Mark’s got a lot more to worry about than his hair – he’s petrified of anything with whiskers and a penchant for cheese. “I hate rats and can’t look at a hamster or guinea pig,” he says concernedly. “If a rat comes near me I’ll cry.” Awww.
