As well as DJing, newly married Mark Wright offered the Love Island gang some romance advice
Tongiht’s episode of the ITV2 reality series shows what happened when former TOWIE star Mark, 28, visited the Islanders to perform a DJ set for contestant Lauren Richardson’s birthday on Sunday – and he also threw in a sneaky bit of romance advice too.
After a day spent looking after electronic baby simulators (yes really – it’s all part of a parenthood test), the gang were thrilled to see Mark appear and it sounds like the feeling was mutual.
‘It is so great to meet you all,’ the TV star told the Islanders. ‘You’ve all been amazing, you’ve all had ups and downs but you all are such a good, lovely group of people…
‘Whoever wins this, whoever doesn’t, I know that you lot are going to stay friends forever, so congratulations, you’re all amazing.’
Lauren was definitely happy to have Mark as part of her birthday treat and confessed after getting a hug from the Essex boy: ‘I didn’t even know what to say.
‘It was really, really good to see him standing there…he’s fit as f*ck as well.’
Sorry Lauren, Mark’s no longer available! The DJ married his gorgeous partner Michelle Keegan in May so, as a happy newlywed, he’s in a great position to help the Love Island crew with their love dilemmas.
Mark had a chat with birthday girl Lauren and, despite admitting that she’s a ‘picky one’, told her he’s glad to see her getting on well with Josh.
‘There’s a reason for everything…to be going out with Josh, that’s perfect, cos you’re mates, it’s better leaving the villa with someone you get on with rather than someone you’re pretending to love,’ he says.
Mark also played cupid for potential Love Island item Max and Jess after encouraging Max to ask his fellow contestant to officially be his girlfriend – and she said yes! All together now – awww.
All in all Mr Wright’s visit resulted in a fun night for all involved. Mark called the event ‘amazing’ and Lauren summed up her birthday party as ‘wicked’. We’re kind of wishing we’d been there now!
