Mark Wright blagged wedding freebies?
Mark Wright was "prepared to blag" to get freebies for his wedding.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star - who is tying the knot with ex-'Coronation Street' beauty Michelle Keegan over the Bank Holiday weekend - reportedly left his wedding planner heading for the door after he tried to wrangle as much as possible for free.
A source said: "Mark has been prepared to blag anything - the venue, the flowers, a limo. It's the biggest day of his life, but he has seemed to treat it more like a PR business transaction.
"He seemed to expect everything handed to him on a plate or on the cheap because of his celebrity status."
Insiders claim that the 28-year-old star bragged his and Michelle's wedding would be as big as Hollywood icon George Clooney's as well as offering free sponsorship and publicity in a bid to secure everything at a cheaper price.
A source also says Mark boasted to pals that he was getting his honeymoon in Dubai for free and that he would be able to secure chart-topping singer Adele to perform at their wedding if he wished.
The boasts reportedly left Michelle feeling "embarrassed".
A source added to the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "Mark has been incredibly demanding ... I don't know if he was joking, but it all seemed a bit far fetched. It became embarrassing. The kind of wedding he wanted would easily have cost more than £250,000, but he didn't want to pay anything like that ...
"Fortunately, Michelle has been a dream to be around - the perfect bride. She's clearly loved every second of the build-up and everybody around her hopes she has a wonderful day.
"She's so down to earth and genuine. But she seemed a bit embarrassed by the hype around it - and by Mark's approach to business dealings."
