A FORMER reality TV star will once again be followed by camera crews as part of a new documentary.

But this time it is his sporting abilities which will be shone under the spotlight.

The first episode of Mark Wright: The Last Chance is set to air on BBC One in the coming weeks.

The broadcaster describes the show as following the 33-year-old as he "seizes his last chance to be a pro footballer - with Crawley Town".

Mark signed for the Sussex club on December 14 on a non-contract basis after impressing in training over the previous two months.

It is his second stint with the League Two side, having played nine times and scored once in the 2006-07 season.

In an emotional post on social media, which showed him playing for the Reds in 2007, Mark said: "Twelve years later and today I put pen to paper for Crawley Town.

"(It has been) 11 years since I fully retired from serious football - I’ve missed it every day.

"My life took a complete U-turn when I was 22 and it’s been the best 10-and-a-half years I could have ever dreamed of, but my love for the game has never gone away and the fact that I never played a professional game in the Football League has always niggled away at me.

"If I don’t do it now, I never will and, at 33, reaching the older side of a professional footballer... it has to be now."

Crawley Town's head coach John Yems, who also worked with Mark during his time at the club in the 2006/2007 season, said: “Mark has been training with us the last couple of months and really impressed everybody in training.

"Hopefully he can carry on from where he left off and I am pleased to have him back with his experience on and off the pitch.

"Mark is a great role model for players in the future.”

He added: “I will always remember Mark’s goal against Tamworth that kept us up that season. I’m so delighted to have him back again.”

Reds general Manager Tom Allman said: “Having someone like Mark involved with the club can only be a positive.

"As well as his obvious technical ability, having someone of his stature wearing the badge, will also shine a light on the positive hard work the club does off the field.”
