Former 'TOWIE' star Mark close to landing own show

Mark Wright

Mark Wright is close to landing his own 'Entourage'-style reality show.

The former 'Only Way Is Essex' star - who quit the series last year to appear on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' - is reportedly in talks with TV bosses to star in his own programme and have cameras follow him and his army of friends in every aspect of their lives.

A pal told the Daily Star newspaper: "Mark was the biggest star of 'TOWIE' but the show was so heavily produced that you didn't really get to see the real Mark.

"Thankfully going on 'I'm A Celeb' helped and people fell in love with him. He's got so many projects on the go that it'll make really interesting telly. And his mates are a right laugh so they are bound to be entertaining."

Mark - who also co-presents 'Take Me Out' spin-off show, 'The Gossip', alongside Zoe Hardman - is keen for the series to replicate US comedy 'Entourage', which documents the escapades of fictional actor Vincent Chase and his pals as they hit Los Angeles.

Earlier this month, the 25-year-old hunk, who is keen for his close friends to appear in the upcoming series, hinted at the possibility of the new show on twitter.

He wrote: "In the gym with the boys! The entourage in full force. I know you guys know what entourage means but it will become clear what it means in relation to me! (sic)"

Mark won't be the first former 'TOWIE' star to launch his own reality series, as Amy Childs landed eight-part show 'It's All About Amy' - which has subsequently been given the chop - late last year.
