A FORMER TOWIE star is reportedly signing for a Sussex team. 

Mark Wright, 33, is said to be considering joining League Two team Crawley Town after the club after they offered him a contract.

That is according to a report from The Sun on Friday.

A source speaking to the publication claimed: "Mark’s a talented footballer who played semi-professionally before he moved into the entertainment industry.

"Football is a huge passion of his. He’s a real asset on the pitch and is fighting fit so the club’s bosses are keen to see if he would join.

"Mark’s not officially agreed to anything yet but Crawley think it won’t be long until he says yes."

It is reported that Mark impressed coaches during training.

The reported move comes after he turned down an approach from non-league side Billericay Town.

Mark is best known for appearing as a cast member on the first three series of The Only Way Is Essex. 

He gained further popularity after appearing on the 11th of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! where he finished as runner-up.
