Mark Wright is set to return to ITV to present This Morning.
The 32-year-old hosted the popular daytime show last year alongside former The Saturdays member Mollie King, and now he’ll be returning to the couch to present with This Morning regular Rochelle Humes.
Saying that the last time he hosted the show was one of his ‘biggest achievements’ Mark said: ‘It was quite a surreal moment and so I am buzzing to be doing it again.
‘I’m just excited to be back in the studio, back to the grind – I love it,’ he continued. ‘It’s a challenging show of course, two hours of live TV so it really tests you, which is what I really love to do – testing myself and being outside of my comfort zone.’
‘I’m sure I’ll be nervous before,’ added the former The Only Way Is Essex star. ‘I’m always quite nervous when I do stuff because I think that’s a good trait to have. A touch of the jitters sharpens the mind, so they say.
‘And it’s This Morning, such an iconic show. I remember when I first came onto TV about 9 years ago and I was asked to go onto This Morning to talk about TOWIE and I thought ‘Oh my God, I’m going onto the couch at This Morning! And so now to be hosting it, it’s a big ordeal, it’s a big thing.’
This Morning regular Rochelle, has presented the show with a combination of different faces, including Eamonn Holmes, Rylan Clark-Neal and her husband Marvin Humes.
The mum-of-two also stood in as the daily host of the show for Holly Willoughby last autumn when she headed over to Australia to present I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here.
‘I know Rochelle quite well from way way way way back and this is the first time I have ever done something with her,’ said Mark.
‘And I know Marvin really well,’ he added, ‘it will just be a nice connection the two of us together, perfect chemistry. And I can wind up Marvin that I’ve stolen his wife for the day!’
