MARK Wright missed his cousin Elliott’s Spanish wedding yesterday after being forced to remain in Los Angeles for his new dream job as a TV host.

Former Towie star Elliott, 35, says he is “very close” to Mark, but neither he nor wife Michelle Keegan turned up for Elliott’s extravagant Marbella nuptials with Sadie Stuart, 25.

But according to the groom, he won’t hold a grudge – despite the vicious row that went on when Mark failed to invite ex-girlfriend Chloe along to his 2015 wedding.

He told The Daily Star: “When Mark took the job in America he said there was a chance he wouldn’t be able to come.

“I’m very close to Mark and we will both be upset he can’t be there. But I know this job was the chance in a lifetime for him.

“I’m proud of him and there’s no hard feelings.”

Mark’s new job, which he began earlier this month, sees him act as a correspondent on celebrity gossip show Extra, and the work has left him thousands of miles away from wife Michelle, star of BBC’s Our Girl.

However, it’s now thought Michelle will join mark in LA bu the end of the year after “clearing her diary”.

Happy Anniversary to my ❤️ … 24.05.2015 xxx

By skipping Elliott’s big day, Mark has not just missed out on a party – he’s also missed out on valuable screen time.

That’s because the whole wedding is going to be shown on a new ITVBe reality show, Elliott Wright: The Wedding.

Restaurant owner Elliott, who lives in Marbella with Sadie, confirmed a two-part show will cover the lead-up to their big day and show them tying the knot.

This two episode special will document the highs and lows of wedding planning which is never going to be simple with Elliott in charge.
