TOWIE news: Mark Wright to return for Christmas special

Mark Wright

Mark Wright it set to return to The Only Way Is Essex, albeit only for a cameo.

Mark was one of the first of the original cast members to flee the ITV2 series, and has done pretty well for himself.

After a stint in the I'm A Celebrity jungle, the Essex hunk now hosts Take Me Out's spin off show The Gossip.

The 25-year-old however will be making a return to Brentwood for TOWIE's Christmas special.

He told The Sun newspaper: “Arg is a bit down right now, so I’m doing this for him. I know how excited he will be.

“It should be great fun and I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends.”

An insider told the tabloid: “Mark has been dishing out some tough love and telling Arg what he really thought of what he’s been up to.

“Mark slates him for charging into the sea with just his pants on that time. Arg is sucking it all up as he knows Mark has his best interests at heart.”

The Christmas special airs on Wednesday night, following the first ever TOWIE live episode earlier this month.
