Mark Wright to fly out to South Africa as much as possible for Michelle

Mark Wright is determined to fly out to South Africa "as much as" he can when his wife Michelle Keegan films 'Our Girl'.

The 'Take Me Out: The Gossip' presenter is not looking forward to spending six months away from his spouse when she jets off in a few weeks to shoot her lead role in the army drama, but he's keen to visit her as often as possible.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he explained: "She's going away to South Africa. I'm going to miss her but I'm going to go out there as much as I can. I'm going to miss her, I really am but I'm excited for her."

And, when he's not hopping on a plane to see his wife, whom he married last year following three years of dating, Mark will be busy shooting the 'Take Me Out' spin-off with Laura Jackson.

He said: "We've got four more episodes coming up on 'Take Me Out: The Gossip', which are explosive. I don't think I'd ever go back to 'The Only Way is Essex' [the show that made him famous] - I just want to stick to presenting now."

Meanwhile, although Mark is devastated to part with Michelle for almost half a year for her new acting gig, the brunette beauty can't wait to get stuck into her role of Georgia Lane.

She said: "I'm so excited about it; I can't wait to get over there and start filming. I've known about it for so long."
