TOWIE's Mark Wright lands primetime presenting job on new ITV1 gameshow My Man Can

Mark WrightFormer The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright is set for primetime Saturday night ITV1 after bagging a presenting job on new gameshow 'My Man Can'.

Wright will front the new show with Melanie Sykes after impressing bosses on ITV2 Take Me Out spin-off The Gossip, according to The Sun.

My Man Can - which has proved a hit worldwide - features a number of girls guessing how well their boyfriends will do in a series of challenges, such as limbo-dancing and eating raw chilli.

The duo recently flew out to Cologne, Germany to film a non-broadcast pilot, with Mel as the main host and Mark reporting on the various tasks.

A source said: "Mark is thrilled ITV are taking a chance on him. He's wanted to be a presenter for years. If this works, he'll be exactly that.

"It's a non-broadcast pilot at the moment but it's pretty much guaranteed a decent slot. My Man Can is big in Germany and is on TV across the world. It's one of the biggest shows in China."

Mark previously finished in second place in last year's series of I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.
