Mark Wright says he ‘wants to feel better’ as he gives health update after losing his fitness routine

MARK Wright has opened up to his fans about "wanting to feel better" after stepping back from his intensive fitness routine.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star – who is a keen sportsman and runs personal training app LiveWright with his brother Josh – gave a health update to his Instagram following on Sunday.

Mark, 35, detailed how he'd fallen off the wagon with his diet and exercise in the weeks after surgery to remove a tumour from his armpit.

The star confirmed he was cancer free back in December after finding a four-inch lump under his arm, which was swiftly removed.

Since then, Mark and his wife Michelle Keegan have been busy building their dream home – leaving the radio host distracted from his routine.

Sharing a photo of his brother Josh at the finish line of a half-marathon, Mark revealed he was "inspired" to get back into his healthy routine.

"That's massively inspired me, seeing my brother doing the half-marathon today," he told his fans via his Instagram stories.

"It's inspired me to get better. You might think, 'You don't need to do that much to get better', but I do in my mind, I do.

"I've not been on it as much, I've not been eating as healthily and I've not been going to the gym as much. So tomorrow I'm back on it."

Mark revealed his plans to be "summer ready" as he explained that he was keen to be "feeling better" in himself.

"Feeling better – I just, when I come off of it and I don't feel like I'm doing I know I should be doing and having that routine and living that healthy life, I just feel differently up here," he said, pointing at his head.

"So tomorrow I'm going in and I'm going hard," Mark concluded. "I'm going to start doing weights, waking up earlier.Just feeling mentally and physically stronger."

Last week, Mark revealed his secret to cutting calories after piling on weight following an indulgent holiday to California.

He  told The Sun he was glad to be back in Blighty after tucking into supersized American portions in LA last month.

In an exclusive interview, he said: "I definitely put some holiday weight on. I ate pizzas and burgers and corn dogs and buffalo wings. There is no way to not gain weight unless I am immortal.

"By the end of the week in LA I missed going to bed feeling healthy -Michelle and I ended up halving the meals in the end."

Mark, who runs his own fitness app Live Right, said he has been inspired and blown away by his pal James ‘Arg’ Argent’s 14 stone weight loss after he underwent a gastric sleeve op.

He continued: “Arg is doing so well, I am so proud of him. We do the odd training session together but he has done most of it on his own.
