I'd make a good Bond, says Wright

From Romford With Love... TV's Mark Wright recreates the latest Bond pose as he declares he is gunning after the 007 role.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star is seen wielding a pistol just like the first image released from the forthcoming Bond film Skyfall.

Wright revealed his ambitions for a "licence TOWIE kill" in a photo shoot for Hello! magazine and said: "It's any man's dream, being Bond."

The 25-year-old, who starred in his own action adventure as he battled his fears in I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!, said he would do a good job of playing the agent.

"Someone made a joke in a paper about me playing him and I thought, 'Why not? I'll do it, I'll be the next James Bond,' he told the magazine.

"That's the kind of guy I am. I believe you have to dream big and aim for the stars. A bit of it might be tongue in cheek, but do I think I'd make a good Bond? Yeah, I do."

Skyfall is currently in production with Daniel Craig returning for a third time as Bond, and it is due in cinemas later this year.

Wright, currently fronting ITV2's The Gossip which is a spin-off from dating show Take Me Out, also has ambitions to host The X Factor.

"I'm not daunted by things I believe I'm talented at. If you asked me, could I be the next top basketball player? I'd say no. If you ask me, could I present X Factor one day, yeah, I could."

:: The full interview and photoshoot are in the new edition of Hello! magazine, which is out now.
