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.

"You can see in my face that I'm into it, intrigued and that I'm standing across from Mariah Carey, staring her in the eyes, calling my name, it's surreal."
