Mark Wright is set to front his own party-planning programme.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star throws parties ‘of a lifetime’ around the world in the six-part ITV2 series.

The ‘king of the Essex party scene’ has just one week to pull out all the stops as an expert party planner.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Mark said: “I know the Essex party scene inside out but I’ve no idea what to expect about the people I’ll be meeting or the parties I’ll be throwing.

“Not since leaving the jungle have I been put in a situation that feels completely out of my comfort zone, but I’m determined to take on whatever challenge comes my way.”

Kate Maddigan, commissioning editor for ITV, said: “This really is Mark Wright as never seen before. In completely different social and cultural surroundings, I can’t wait to see whether he can hold his nerve, keep his cool and put on a party that has the Mark magic touch.”

Last month, it was reported that Mark’s new ITV show, My Man Can, was cancelled by unimpressed TV bosses after the star filmed a pilot episode.
