The former The Only Way Is Essex (Towie) star - who travelled the globe for new ITV2 show Party Wright Around The World - told how his mates have nicknamed him Hitch, after the Will Smith film about a professional matchmaker.

Mark said: "I am a good matchmaker. My friends put me in their phone book as Hitch, after the film.

"I love hitching my mates up when they're trying to get a girl, or hitching girls I know when they're trying to get a guy, because I've normally got good advice."

He added: "Eventually I want to be presenting Saturday night, shiny floor big talent shows or game shows, dating shows, that's my dream.

"I'm in talks with a production company about a dating show. It's still in the early stages."

Mark previously hosted Take Me Out spin-off show Take Me Out: The Gossip, but insisted he isn't after host Paddy McGuinness' job.

Mark said: "Paddy's amazing at that job, no one's getting that job off him."
