But while the former Towie man is loving his new role, he revealed it’s hard being apart from his wife Michelle Keegan, family and friends.

Speaking to The Sun Online from Las Vegas to promote his new partnership with Cadbury’s Milk Tray, Mark said: “I’ve had the same group of friends since I was a kid. I miss them lots, I miss my family, my wife’s away working, we can’t get to each other right now because she’s working solidly every day like I am, too.

“I’m without my friends, without my family, without my wife – it’s always going to be a bit lonely but I’m not complaining just yet.

“I’m enjoying the job. Going to bed early, waking up early, doing the best I can and then in a couple of months I’ll be reunited with my wife and I’ll be feeling a lot better by then.”

The Essex hunk shared posts on Instagram last weekend of him looking glum as he pined for Michelle while on a night out in Hollywood.

But while he’s feeling a little homesick right now, he’s thoroughly grateful for his new high profile role.

“I’m loving every minute of it, it’s incredible,” he told us. “I’m learning more and more each day and I’m meeting more and more incredible people. Our set is outside in the sunshine in Universal Studios in Hollywood’ it’s all just a bit pinch yourself.”

In a new set of promo shots Mark can be seen being put through his paces by the Milk Tray man in a bid to learn the art of thoughtfulness.

Wearing a purple headband, the athletic star shows impressive form during press ups and is nimble on his feet through a tyre run.

Meanwhile Michelle is counting down the days until her BBC drama Our Girl returns to screens.

The actress, 30, shared a picture of her in full army gear from her time filming in South Africa.

She captioned the pic: “When George went a little chic… Not long now 5 more sleep till #ourgirl is BACK!!!! @bbcone 9pm October 10th ❤️”
