Former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright made a name for himself on the reality television show and has starred in further reality television shows since. However, Mark insists that he will never be on a reality television series again, as he does not want to risk his relationship with Michelle Keegan.
Wright said at Heart FM's Have A Heart Appeal, "I'll never do a show like TOWIE again. I won't ever put my personal life on the line again. It could ruin the relationship and it puts a lot of stress on it. The hardest part was putting your personal life out there and I find it hard when people make comments about your relationship. I'm very happy in this relationship.
He added, "That's why I don't want it to be like before - always in the newspapers and talked about by everyone. I did it for a year and I'm quite glad I'm out of it and doing well for myself. Sometimes you just want to be private again."
Mark Wright was dating fellow The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger, when the show first aired but having the cameras constantly there was clearly too much for them both. They have since split up and there has been plenty of bad blood between the two, as Lauren insists that Mark is still in love with her.
