Mark Wright makes a surprise appearance on Love Island this week

Love is in air on Love Island! Unsurprising really given the name. Even Mark Wright, one half of newlywed loved-up couple with wife Michelle Keegan, couldn’t stay away from the island of lurrrve.

The 27-year-old paid a sneaky little visit to the Love Island villa last night on Sunday, to play a surprise DJ set for islander Lauren Richardson’s birthday party.

But DJ-ing isn’t the only job that Mark will have on his CV, as the former TOWIE lad seems to be keen to also do some spying and snooping for our entertainment purposes. YES MARK.

‘I’m really excited to be going in to DJ at Lauren’s party.’

By the sounds of it, Mark has been sucked into the show as much as the rest of us have, and he’s determined to get all the must-know gossip from the Island for us. Because, you know, we need that important need-to-know information if we’re to carry on with our week.

‘I’ve been addicted to Love Island and I’ll be making sure I get all the gossip whilst I’m in there.’

Islander Lauren celebrated turning 27 at the weekend, but we’ll have to wait until Tuesday’s episode to see Mark’s surprise appearance.

Lauren joined the 90s revamped reality TV show after she became known for THAT infamous photo with ex-One Direction star, Zayn Malik.

The pair were snapped together while the band were touring in Thailand, and after going viral, it sparked rumours and claims that the 22-year-old boy band member had cheated on fiancé Perrie Edwards with Lauren.

Lauren’s association with the band doesn’t seem like it’s going to disappear anytime soon either, as the group of boys on the island surrounded Lauren in the series, and did their own little rendition of 1D’s What Makes You Beautiful and serenaded her. Awkward ? Yes. Better than our rendition at karaoke? No.

We can’t wait to see our favourite Essex boy Mark on the show! Now, how do we get Wrighty to DJ at our birthday as well?

Is that Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan, or The Beckhams?!

Mark Wright shows us how to woo our loved ones! Oo-er
