Wright: I'm free and single for now
Mark Wright has insisted he has no regrets about living out his romance with Lauren Goodger in the public eye.
The reality TV star's on-off relationship with Lauren was the source of much drama during his time on ITV2's The Only Way Is Essex, but Mark said he was pleased with the exposure.
"It is hard living your love life in the public eye I suppose, but I did it for a year. I chose to do it for my career to go on, and it worked, and I live with no regrets," he revealed.
"Lauren was a big part of my life, but she's in my past now and I've moved on to the future, and I wish her all the best."
Mark refused to comment on reports of a fling with X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos and insisted he was happily single for now.
"I'm totally single, free and single, enjoying it and just working hard... I'm loving everything I'm doing and I'm a very happy person," he added.
I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star Mark now hosts dating spin-off show Take Me Out: The Gossip - but confessed he wouldn't have gone on the show before he was famous.
"Probably not. I'm quite shy with things like that, believe it or not, but I don't think I would have," he said.
