Strictly plunge for Towie's Wright

Strictly Come Dancing bosses are hoping Mark Wright will bring a bit of Essex-appeal to the dance floor after he signed up for the hit ballroom show.

The TV star, who shot to fame on reality show The Only Way Is Essex, is the sixth celebrity revealed from this year's line-up.

Wright, who hosts a radio show on Heart, said: " Doing Strictly is going to be so completely different from anything I've done before. I'm the sort of guy who loves to bust out some moves at a party but I'm certainly not a natural dancer.

"Any of my friends would tell you that - they call me 'Markey no-moves'! I'm genuinely petrified about dancing on national telly but Strictly is such an amazing show to be a part of and I can't wait to get stuck in and give it my all."

The reality TV star, who is engaged to ex-Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan, will join celebrity dancers including Judy Murray and singer Frankie Bridge in the new series which returns to BBC One in the autumn.
