The Only Way Is Essex's Mark Wright lands first film role

Mark Wright

Former TOWIE star Mark Wright has landed his first ever film role, playing Kelly Brooke's love interest in a new British gangster movie.

According to The Sun, Mark is going to feature alongside Tamer Hassan and Danny Dyer in the new flick.

"Mark is keen to get into acting and Cockney gangster films are right up his street," a source told the newspaper. "He loves The Business and Football Factory so it's a dream for him to work with Danny and Tamar.

"Add Kelly into the mix, he's made up."

It comes just months after his exit from TOWIE last year, which was followed by by a stint in the I'm A Celebrity jungle back in November.

Since then Mark has tried a bit of presenting, and currently hosts ITV2's Take Me Out Spin-off The Gossip, but it's apparently the big screen where Mark sees himself next!
