When discussing a potential stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, he said he believes the show could help him go from 23 to 19 stone.

He said: “I’d like the moment I walk across the bridge four stone lighter.

“I’ve still got a fair way to go,” he added.

“My target is about 19 stone. For anyone else that’s monstrous, but for me of course I’ll be skinny.”

Despite the jungle being a good place to shed the pounds, Mark joked he thinks cannibalism would be on the cards due to the lack of food in camp.

“The problem is when people ask me this, I say listen after three weeks in the jungle, cannibalism is on the cards.

“My dad was a butcher in the meat trade, I know how to butcher a carcass, so somebody better not annoy me in the jungle, especially if they muck up a food challenge!”

He then laughed off being the camp’s chef, as he joked: “No one would trust me with the food!”


The father-of-one went on to say he would get “really angry” if he went without food.

He added: “I’m thinking, is the jungle the right environment for me? But then again it might make good tele.

“I’d hate to be stuck in the jungle with me when I’m starving, other people shut down when they haven’t had enough food.

“They’ve had some heavy celebs in there and the hunger gets to them.”
