Strictly Come Dancing star Mark Wright has revealed he's got a new obsession with sequins since joining the show.

Speaking to Alan Carr on his Chatty Man show, which will air tonight (3 October), former TOWIE star Mark said he can't get enough of the sparkly embellishments.

Mark said: "At first when I met the wardrobe people, I was like 'I don't want too many sequins, I want to keep it as masculine as I can'.

"It's been 1 week, they gave me a vest with sparkles on the back and I was like 'nah nah, put some more on the front'. I'm getting camper as the weeks go on."

Last week, Mark performed the Cha Cha to Wham!'s hit 'I'm Your Man' and broke out into the worm on the dance floor.

The move certainly impressed Mark's fiancée Michelle Keegan, who was watching her man shake his hips from the crowds.

Talking about the classic disco move, Alan asked Mark where he had learnt to do the worm.

"Michelle asked me this the other day," Mark replied. "I think it was on my first night out when I was 18, I saw someone do it and I tried it."

Mark will be performing his second routine this weekend with professional dance partner Karen Hauer. This week's routine will be slower in pace as they'll be performing the American Smooth to 'I'm Yours' by Jason Mraz.

Catch Mark and his fellow Strictly stars on Alan Carr: Chatty Man tonight (Friday 3 October) at 10pm on Channel 4.
