Mark Wright is to go partying around the world for a new ITV2 show called 'International Party Liaison'
Mark Wright is to go partying around the world for a new TV show.
The former 'Only Way Is Essex' star will appear in 'International Party Liaison', a six-part ITV2 show which will see him search the globe for the best and wackiest parties.
In each show, the ex-club promoter - who is dating 'Coronation Street' actress Michelle Keegan - will meet the party host then have to pull off a series of challenges.
Channel bosses are hopeful this will be the show that finally sees the 25-year-old hunk connect with audiences, after his reality series 'Mark Wright's Hollywood Nights' was canned due to poor ratings, and his proposed entertainment show, 'My Man Can' - in which women put their useless boyfriends to the test - was shelved before it was even made.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "ITV know he has a big fan base but so far his shows have been wide of the mark.
"We're not sure why, but we're willing to test things out and see what works best.
"This show could be good for him because it has the travel aspect, but also it's Mark doing what he does best - clubbing.
"We're sure his fans will love to see him partying around the world."
