MARK Wright may have made it in Hollywood but he’s still a Towie boy at heart, judging by these pictures of him.
The 30-year-old was spotted getting very animated during a conversation with his best mate Freddie Akehurst as they enjoyed a few beers in LA.
Clearly feeling very passionate about something, the reality TV star turned presenter could be seen getting a little worked up as they chatted away.
Looking more like the Mark from his reality TV days, the presenter made his feelings very clear with a series of hand gestures.
Once he made his point, Mark – who is married to Michelle Keegan – looked fed up as he finished up the rest of his beer while his mate Freddie barely seemed to respond to whatever they were talking about.
Mark has been friends with Freddie for a number of years and it seems he flew out to help Mark settle in with his big move.
The Essex born star recently landed a gig as a correspondent on the US TV show Extra alongside Mario Lopez and has moved to LA to do the job – meaning he’s once again in a long distance relationship with wife Michelle.
Despite concerns about how the couple will make it work living on different sides of the pond, Mark’s cousin Elliot recently denied there would be any issue.
Elliot, who revealed Mark was missing his wedding for work, recently told new! magazine: “Listen, Michelle has been away for ages. It’s work and people have made a big thing about it.
“Work is work and when you get to our age, you have to do what you have to do.

“Good luck to him, and Michelle is doing what she is doing.”
Meanwhile Mark could be set to move in with one-time X Factor winner James Arthur, who is always living Stateside.
James recently revealed: “I was sitting by the pool waiting to hear it back when Mark came over and we had a couple of glasses of whisky.
“He is such a lovely, down to earth guy. We talked about hanging out and sharing a flat. It would be a pretty cool flat.”
