It is rumoured the "The Dengineers" co-host's first task will see him visit the set of former One Direction band member Niall Horan's music video and report behind the scenes for the channel.

And if the project is to go ahead Mark will accompany former "Save By The Bell" actor Mario Lopez, "The Other Woman" actress and model Olivia Culpo, as well as presenter Terri Seymour on the American entertainment show.

However, Mark is not the only member from the Wright family to be venturing into projects further afield, as his 31-year-old sister Jess Wright - who quit the ITVBe reality show in 2016 - has signed with Dannii Minogue's agent John Ferriter in a bid to crack America as well.
