MARK WRIGHT...

FOR REWRIT­ING HIS­TORY

Heat (UK) - - Front Page -

Re­mem­ber Mark Wright, that in­ter­na­tional, globe-trot­ting Dj/model/soc­cer hero? No, us nei­ther. But that hasn’t stopped the for­mer TOWIE Lothario be­ing in­tro­duced to Amer­ica in those terms. Last week, Mark made his de­but as US TV show Ex­tra’s new­est pre­sen­ter and, in the process, schooled us all in the art of spin. In a mon­tage video, our Wrighty was praised as the UK’S big­gest ex­port. He was seen fronting mas­sive ad cam­paigns (like, er, flog­ging Oykos yo­gurt), scor­ing goals for Eng­land (it quickly swept over the fact it was a char­ity footie match – you know, the one where he had a run-in with Danny Dyer) and be­ing a gen­eral A-list “thrill seeker, who boxes, dances and swims with sharks”. In all fair­ness to Mark, his­tory is writ­ten by the win­ners, so far be it from us to pooh-pooh his bio. Who cares if it’s full of more baloney than Nanny Pat’s sausage plait?
