Mark Wright says new presenting role is 'surreal'

Mark Wright admits his new life in the US is "surreal".

The 30-year-old star has relocated to Los Angeles, where he's become part of the new presenting team on the American entertainment news show "Extra", and Mark conceded he is currently living a dream.

He explained: "Interviewing Mariah Carey was weird. The likes of James [Corden], Jamie Foxx, Lily James, it has all been completely surreal.

"Even working with an American film crew in LA was surreal in itself and working on a show like "Extra". The first time I went down to the set to watch how it all works, I saw Mario [Lopez] and it was surreal."

Mark also revealed he welcomes the opportunity to interview the biggest names in the entertainment business, even if it leaves him feeling very nervous.
