Mark Wright says it would be "too much" to work with Michelle Keegan

Mark Wright has ruled out starring alongside his wife Michelle Keegan. Boo.

Wave goodbye to the hope of ever seeing these two on the same show because former TOWIE star Mark is determined to go it alone when it comes to his presenting career, and believes teaming up with his actress wife would be "too much."

It's a shame because we had our fingers crossed these two would be in line to replace Ant and Dec if those rumours about Britain's Got Talent are true...

He told the Daily Mirror: "We're both aware we're not at the peak of our career. We're on the rise. While we're trying to make it to where we want to be, we want to do it on our own.

"I want to get credit for doing a primetime high-rating TV show without it being because I'm with Michelle. My career's so important to me. If we work together it's too much."

"Too much" what? We're guessing he means too much fun, obviously.

With Michelle heading off to South Africa to film the new series of Our Girl, it sounds like we won't be seeing Mark making any surprise cameos.

In the show, Michelle will play army medic Corporal Georgie Lane, who gets caught in a dangerous mission in a war-torn area of Africa.

Mark revealed on Loose Women that although he won't be jetting off with her, he would be visiting Michelle on set abroad. Cute!
