It’s not all about Michelle… Mark makes his own bid to crack the US

His actress wife has made no secret of her desire to crack Hollywood – but it seems that Mark Wright has his own career aspirations Stateside. 

The reality TV star (and sometimes TV presenter and DJ) jetted out to California on Sunday accompanied by his wife of two months, Michelle Keegan.

And in order to get into the celebrity spirit of things – the duo promptly hit A-lister eatery, Craig's.

Mark and Michelle must have felt right at home too: they were snapped by waiting paparazzi as they entered and left the well-known Beverly Hills steakhouse yesterday evening. 

It seems that the 28-year-old has a big future ahead of him also.

Top American TV manager John Ferriter, who discovered Ryan Seacrest and also represents Piers Morgan in America, is quoted by Mail Online as saying: "American television networks hav‎e been following Mark Wright's career in the UK and think he could be a big hit with American viewers and have flown him out for series of private meetings."

On the same evening, Craig's was also frequented by former Victoria's Secret Angel Karolina Kurkova; Sylvester Stallone and his wife Jennifer Flavin, as well as singer-songwriter John Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen.

For the outing, Michelle, 28, wore a €95 Lipsy midi dress from her own collection. Meanwhile, Mark opted for a more understated look, donning a denim shirt, navy slacks and brown suede boots. 

Upon landing in the Golden State, Mark had tweeted that he "loved this place". And it seems that he and his wife packed relatively light: they were spotted leaving Heathrow on Saturday carrying only two moderately-sized black bags.

Speaking to OK! Online in May, former Coronation Street star Ms Keegan had said: "If the opportunity came up for me to move to America, I've never been to LA to film or anything, but who knows, maybe in the future."
