"I'm excited about travelling the country, meeting the deserving kids and their families and building some amazing dens."

Mark's departure comes as somewhat of a surprise as it was thought last year that he was taking the programme to the US after signing a deal with the Discovery Family.

However, although he's remaining tight-lipped on why he's walked away from the children's show, Jamie O'Hara hinted earlier this week that Mark could be about to play football for Billericay Town after he bought a 20 per cent stake in the club.

Jamie told The Sun newspaper: "Mark wants to be involved with the club as much as possible. He has talked about maybe playing. I think he's desperate to get down here. He's very capable of playing at a professional level and he should play as much as he can because he loves it. I think he was close to making it as a pro."
