I’m A Celeb’s Mark For EastEnders?

The King of the Jungle was announced on I’m a Celebrity on Saturday night, with McFly bassist Dougie Poynter taking the crown over runner-up Mark Wright. You might be inclined to think it was the other way around of course – with TOWIE star Mark appearing as the tabloid fodder – rather than the unassuming and quiet winner.

Mark features in most red-tops today sans shirt, eager to give the goss on his plans for the future, and any possible romance rumours with fellow camp-mate Emily Scott.

Despite Aussie Emily confessing to Ant and Dec that she fancied Mark, he quashes any hopes of a romance stating that: “I am single and want to be on my own. I won’t deny she is a good catch but that is not how I feel about her.â€?

He also spoke of his plans for the future. The Only Way is Up according to Mark; he apparently has plans to begin an acting career, with possible roles being touted in Eastenders and ludicrously, James Bond. “EastEnders is an amazing show so I’m not going to say I wouldn’t like to be involved,” he said. “However, there are some other things I want to do first.â€?

Luckily he appears to be taking such suggestions with a pinch of salt saying, “Eventually, I’d love to work in Hollywood – I’m not stupid enough to believe that’s going to happen in the near future. But as they say, ‘Reach for the sky’”.

It seems winner Dougie has matters of the heart on his mind; revealing that he has plans afoot involving his girlfriend Laura, “She’s such an awesome chick. I think I’d be mental not to marry her” he gushed.
