Mark Wright proud of ‘incredible’ Michelle Keegan as he says he has few talents

Mark Wright has praised his wife Michelle Keegan’s acting skills, admitting he doesn’t have any similar talents.

The former TOWIE star turned TV and radio presenter has been married to actress Michelle for six years.

And it appears their marriage is still going strong as he complimented her.

He admitted while she is a natural “born actress” he is the “hardest working man in the room.”

The 34-year-old reality star told The Sun: “I’m extremely proud. I feel very lucky. The one thing I’ll say. I’m not arrogant or confident about any kind of talent because I can’t sing to save my life. I can’t act; like my wife’s a born actress and is incredible at what she does. I can’t do that.

“I took a long long time to learn how to present TV, a long time to learn how to present radio. Yes I had a talent in football, not enough to go all the way. The one thing I will be arrogant about and confident about is I’ll always be the hardest working man in the room.”

Michelle, who rose to fame in long-running ITV soap Coronation Street and Sky One comedy Brassic, has become one of Britain’s most popular actresses in recent years.

Meanwhile, Mark has been on our screens for the last decade being one of the original cast members on hit reality show The Only Way is Essex as well as a presenter and entertainment reporter on US news programme Extra.

During his time in the US he interviewed big celebrities such Kim Kardashian, Mariah Carey and Jamie Foxx.

Currently he is presenting Heart’s evening show Monday to Thursday.

Mark has also appeared on other big reality shows such as I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and Strictly Come Dancing.

However, Mark admitted his determination and strong work ethic has helped him forge a great career.

He added: "When I said I wanted to go to America my agent and people in my industry were like ‘Mark, it’s so hard. People have tried and failed.’ And I was like ‘well, watch this. I’m not gonna sleep until I get this job.

“And this is a message to anyone; you don’t have to have a talent. If you didn't get incredible grades in your GCSEs or A-Levels, believe me, there’s more to you than what’s written on paper, and you can get anything you wanna get. Believe, work hard, and it will come.”

This comes as Mark clapped back at trolls who claimed reality TV stars are talentless.

The footballer and fitness fanatic told the Radio Times it’s not easy with the camera following your every move.

He said: "Starting out on a reality TV show does come with a stigma. The minute somebody does one, they apparently have no talents. But I beg to differ. It’s not easy to have a camera put in your face and be expected to be entertaining or likeable."
