Mark Wright ‘panicked’ as dad sought emergency assist in ‘scary’ incident | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV


Mark Wright, 36, has spoken out on the “scary moment” he thought “something bad” had happened to his dad Mark Wright Sr, because the pair filmed their show A Wright Old Adventure.

The son and father duo were filming a bungee jumping scene when the previous The Only Way Is Essex star said he saw his dad had “passed out”.

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk on the panic-inducing moment, Mark said: “We did a bungee jump and I saw my dad pass out.

“We saw the medics of the show run off to get a defibrillator because they thought something bad had happened.

“Me and my brother were sat at the highest of this bungee ramp just panicking like mad.”

“There have been quite a lot of scary moments,” he added.

The show on BBC One tomorrow follows Mark, his dad, 65, and younger brother Joshua Wright, 33 as they explore the UK.

Mark revealed how filming together had been a “bonding experience” for the famous family.

This was especially so because it got here following the death of Mark’s uncle Eddie from Covid in 2021.

Mark said: “It’s a extremely heartfelt show, attempting to get my dad away after all the pieces he’s lost.

“That was really incredible and possibly the most effective thing I’ve ever done, simply because I hung out with two of my best mates.”

He added: “I’ve been away with my work quite a bit, and Josh is a footballer, so he’s away quite a bit, and my dad does what he does, so for it to be just the three of us on the road for six or seven weeks was amazing.

“We thought it was an excellent opportunity to point out what number of amazing things there are in England.”

Elsewhere Mark is keen on his fitness and enjoys a healthy snack between meals to maintain him feeling fuller for longer.

Speaking on the key behind his incredibly toned physique, Mark revealed: “I really like whole foods like almonds – they’re great on-the-go and tick so many dietary boxes with fibre, good fats and polyphenols, all of that are thought to support gut health.

“Such a straightforward method to up your nutrient intake and support your health.”

Mark Wright has partnered with California Almonds to encourage Brits to open up about gut health and learn more about how almonds can maintain a healthy gut.

A Wright Old Adventure airs tomorrow on BBC One at 8pm.
