Mark Wright and Dougie Poynter could be set to front their own entertainment show.
The duo - who have been close pals since appearing on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' together late last year - have been meeting with TV bosses in the hope of getting one step closer to achieving their dream of becoming the "next Ant and Dec".
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Mark and Doug are itching to land their own TV show, something they can front together as a duo. Mark has loads of ideas and is really serious about trying to get producers to consider them.
"They're both really active and sporty so a high-energy, fun-packed entertainment show would be ideal. They have a huge fan base, individually and together. Most girls fancy them but they also appeal to men as they've got the blokey banter.
"Mark has admitted Ant and Dec are a huge inspiration."
Meanwhile, former 'The Only Way Is Essex' hunk Mark has reportedly landed his first film role in an upcoming British gangster movie opposite Danny Dyer, Tamer Hassan and brunette bombshell Kelly Brook, who will play his love interest.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Mark is keen to get into acting and Cockney gangster films are right up his street. He loves 'The Business' and 'Football Factory' so it's a dream for him to work with Danny and Tamar.
"Add Kelly into the mix, he's made up."
