'Party Wright Around the World' has been axed by ITV2.

Mark Wright's travel programme - which showed the hunky star organising global parties - has been given the chop after just one series due to poor ratings.

This will be the former 'The Only Way is Essex' star's fourth consecutive show to get dropped after the failure of his 'Hollywood Nights' series in 2012, 'Take Me Out's spin-off 'The Gossip, and his gameshow 'My Man Can', which was cancelled before it even aired.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Mark has a lot of fans and was a huge hit on 'TOWIE' and 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' [in 2011 when he came in second place to Dougie Poynter], but the shows he has done since then have been turkeys. He needs to find a show that works for him soon otherwise bosses may look elsewhere."

'Party Wright Around The World' kicked off with 350,000 viewers in February, but slumped to just 206,000 within the space of a month.

Mark's spokeswoman insists the 27-year-old star was fine about the decision to not go ahead with a second series of the show as he's already got other plans in the pipeline.

She said: "Mark was delighted by the fan reaction to the show. It was only ever meant to be one series."

Mark - who is engaged to 'Coronation Street' actress Michelle Keegan - left 'TOWIE' in 2011 and has attempted to build a career as a presenter ever since.
