TOWIE favourite Mark Wright meets one of his idols

Mark Wright and David Beckham made a rather handsome pair when they were snapped together at The Sun’s Military Awards in London last night.

Former TOWIE ladies’ man and I’m A Celebrity runner-up Mark was also joined by retired footballer Jamie Redknapp, 38, in the photo he proudly posted on Twitter.

‘I will cherish this picture forever !!’ Tweets Mark, 24.

The glitzy event at the Imperial War Museum was held to honour the achievements of our servicemen at home and abroad.

Now revealed earlier this year that Mark was keen to head to LA in the hope football legend David, 36, would take him under his wing.  

‘He’s asked his agent John Ferriter to arrange a meeting,’ a friend told us.
