Mark Wright is to present a new dating show alongside Melanie Sykes for ITV
Mark Wright is to present a new dating show.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star - who currently fronts 'Take Me Out: The Gossip' - will work alongside Melanie Sykes on 'My Man Can', where young men are put through a series of challenges and their female partners have to guess how well they can do.
Mel will be the main host while Mark will oversee the challenges, such as eating platefuls of raw chillies or limbo dancing.
The 25-year-old hunk is said to be delighted ITV are helping him to continue his presenting work.
A source told The Sun: "Mark is thrilled ITV are taking a chance on him. He's wanted to be a presenter for years. If this works, he'll be exactly that.
"It's a non-broadcast pilot at the moment but it's pretty much guaranteed a decent slot. 'My Man Can' is big in Germany and is on TV across the world. It's one of the biggest shows in China."
Tweeting about the show yesterday, Mark added: "Just left the hotel with MsMelanieSykes and out agents on the way 2 the studio !! Big day ahead !!(sic)"
