Carol Wright isn't afraid to embarrass her son on Twitter

Mark Wright was a little shocked when a man farted in front of him yesterday.

The ex-TOWIE star, 27, told his Twitter followers that he was having a wee when another guy in the gents parped – and it lasted a rather long time.

‘That moment when you are in a public toilet and the man stood next to you does a 4 second trump & then takes a deep relieved breath #awkward,’ Tweeted Mark.

Mark‘s fans couldn’t help feeling tickled by his message, with one Tweeting that it had ‘cheered me up’ and another admitting that ‘we’ve all been that man at some point’.

But the Essex hunk’s mum Carol reckons it’s Mark who usually has wind.

Carol joked that she has to put up with his gas on a regular basis and asked Mark‘s fiancée Michelle Keegan – who he proposed to last September – if she does too.

Luckily for Mark, Coronation Street‘s Michelle, 26, decided to avoid the question.

‘@MarkWright_ well son that’s normally you who does that haha @michkeegan do you agree x,’ Tweeted Carol.
