James 'Arg' Argent and Mark Wright want to become TV's new Ant and Dec
James 'Arg' Argent and Mark Wright want to become TV's new Ant and Dec.
The pals - who appear alongside one another in 'The Only Way Is Essex' - are hoping their on-screen "bromance" will take off and land them a full-time presenting slot as "better-looking versions" of the 'Britain's Hot Talent' hosts.
Speaking at this weekend's (10.07.11) T4 On The Beach, Arg told BANG Showbiz: "Me and Mark, we've been really lucky. Since 'TOWIE' has finished we've had a nice few gigs; we've presented on 'T4' together, we've done 'Britain's Got Talent'.
"We've got our bromance going on so hopefully when the show finishes we'll be able to pursue something together.
"A bit of presenting would be nice. Ant and Dec are the ones we aspire to. We met them the other night and they sort of said that we might be the better looking versions, the cockney versions of them."
In the meantime, Arg is confident his romance with co-star Lydia Bright is back on track, and is hoping to take their relationship to the next level.
He recently told BANG Showbiz: "Me and Lyd are just seeing how things are going again. I love her so much and she's such a great girl but she's just got to decide whether she trusts me or not.
"We're going to start looking for a place together soon. If I show her some commitment then hopefully it will prove to her how much she means to me."
