Mark Wright, of The Only Way Is Essex and I’m a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here fame, will be coming to Saffron Walden to compère the ever-popular carnival queen competition on July 4.
Since Wright burst out from Brentwood and onto our TV screens in October 2010 as a star of TOWIE, he has gone on to become one of the most popular and talked-about media personalities in the UK.
His successful career as a presenter is charging forward with his new show Party Wright Around The World, Wednesday nights on ITV2, as well as through his own radio show on Heart FM.
It will cap a true night of Essex stars, and comes a week after the organisers of Saffron Walden Carnival 2014, the Round Table, announced that X Factor winner Matt Cardle will be performing on opening night of the popular ‘Eight Day Weekend’, .
Carnival chairman Jason Thomson said: “Between Matt Cardle and Mark Wright, we have a fantastic Essex line-up to kick off what promises to be another great carnival.”
