Mark Wright: I'm a pro matchmaker

Mark Wright wants to host his own dating show

Mark Wright has revealed he is a great matchmaker and hopes to host his own dating show.

The former The Only Way Is Essex (Towie) star - who travelled the globe for new ITV2 show Party Wright Around The World - told how his mates have nicknamed him Hitch, after the Will Smith film about a professional matchmaker.

Mark said: "I am a good matchmaker. My friends put me in their phone book as Hitch, after the film.

"I love hitching my mates up when they're trying to get a girl, or hitching girls I know when they're trying to get a guy, because I've normally got good advice."

He added: "Eventually I want to be presenting Saturday night, shiny floor big talent shows or game shows, dating shows, that's my dream.

"I'm in talks with a production company about a dating show. It's still in the early stages."

Mark previously hosted Take Me Out spin-off show Take Me Out: The Gossip, but insisted he isn't after host Paddy McGuinness' job.

Mark said: "Paddy's amazing at that job, no one's getting that job off him."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
