It seems that the former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright was not joking when he said he aims for the stars. Only yesterday, Mark Wright revealed that he believes that he would have no problem being the next James Bond, although now it seems that he has set his sights slightly lower but still rather ambitious. Mark claims that he would be a perfect replacement for Dermot O’Leary as the host of The X Factor.
Mark Wright was not making any sort of official pitch for the job but he certainly hinted at it as a future possibility. Wright explained, “I'm not daunted by things I believe I'm talented at. If you asked me, could I be the next top basketball player? I'd say no. If you ask me, could I present X Factor one day, yeah, I could."
It seems highly unlikely that Mark Wright would ever get the job as the host of The X Factor, especially since Dermot O’Leary does such a fantastic job every year. However, show business is a funny old game and stranger things have happened in the past. So, Dermot O’Leary watch your back, Mark Wright is coming for your job!
