Mark Wright 'to front CBBC show'

Mark Wright is to front a show on children's television.

The 28-year-old star - who is best known for his appearances on 'The Only Way Is Essex' and 'Strictly Come Dancing' - is set to present a CBBC programme called 'Dengineers' in which he will make dens and will also include an appearance from sister Jessica.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Mark is still a big name in TV, even if those formats didn't really work. He has always wanted to be a kids' TV presenter. He starts filming next month and can't wait."

Mark is currently planning his marriage to former 'Coronation Street' actress Michelle Keegan, 27, and recently revealed the couple are hoping to enjoy a "traditional" day with their families.

He shared: "Getting married abroad wouldn't have felt right. It's not like a real wedding in a church in the way our mums and dads married, and we want our families there.

"This day will be how we always dreamt and hoped it would be."

What's more, Mark even confessed they've discussed the possibility of starting a family and have been debating potential baby names.

He revealed: "I'd like traditional but I wouldn't have a say because Michelle likes unusual names."
