Mark Wright doesn't want to go into acting as he'd rather focus on his presenting
Mark Wright insists he hasn't got "the acting bug".
The former 'Only Way is Essex' star recently shot a cameo appearance in 'Murder in Successville' and although he had a great time on the showbiz sitcom, he isn't looking for a new career direction as he's rather build on his presenting work and get more high-profile shows to front.
He said: "It was one of the best things I've done. You don't have a script, so I had to enter a scene and just react to the situation.
"I wouldn't say it's given me the acting bug though. I just want to keep presenting. One day I want to hot big shows on a Saturday night."
The 29-year-old star - who is married to 'Our Girl' actress Michelle Keegan - is currently getting fit for celebrity charity tournament Soccer Aid , and though he is excited to be taking part, he admits he is nervous of working with the England side's manager Jose Mourinho.
He told OK! magazine: "I absolutely cannot weight. It's a boyhood dream. I'll be playing in a huge, filled Old Trafford stadium, with professional footballers.
"Jose Mourinho is training us for a week. I'll probably be a bit star-struck but I won't get nervous. I'll just try and play it cool."
Mark is working hard to look as "ripped" as possible for the tournament.
He said: "I want to gain muscle and lose body fat so I look more ripped.
"I run on an empty stomach first thing in the morning to burn off fat reserves, then I'll have some eggs, avocado and smoked salmon.
"Then I'll train at the gym with weights, have a protein shake and then some lunch, like a chicken salad.
"At 3pm I'll have a handful of nuts and for dinner I'll have fish or steak with salad."
