Former TOWIE star turned TV and radio presenter Mark Wright has caused quite a buzz since it was announced that he would be taking part in the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Talking about why he decided to do that show when he doesn’t consider himself a mover, Mark said, ‘I just think it’s something you can’t turn down. It’s an incredible show, the best show on telly. I’ve never danced before, learned anything like this in my life – it’s a huge challenge and if I can conquer it then I’ll be very happy.’

Is he a competitive person? ‘I am competitive in certain things, like boxing and football, but I won’t be competitive in this. I want to do well for myself and each week that goes on I’ll learn a new dance and I’ve never learned a dance…. Maybe if I got to the end and I was in the final I’d be competitive. But at this point I don’t feel too competitive.’

How far does Mark think he’ll get in the competition? ‘Genuinely if I don’t go out in the first three I’ll be ecstatic!’

Strictly Come Dancing returns at 8pm Sunday on BBC One. Watch Mark’s launch interview below:
