Television heart-throb Mark Wright is coming to St Albans

GET your fake tan on: Mark “left hook” Wright, King of all things Essex, is coming to St Albans.

The heartbreaker, a star of hit ITV2 show The Only Way is Essex, will be guest of honour at a TOWIE-themed night at Havana in St Albans this Friday, June 17.

Adam Shilston, spokesman for Havana, said the TOWIE cast member would be at the Victoria Street venue between 11.30pm and 1am. The event as a whole is from 9pm until 2am.

Mark, who according to ITV2 publicity “loves himself more than anyone else on earth,” will pose for photos with party-goers.

With the next series of the show planned to resume in Autumn, Adam said the evening presented the perfect opportunity for TOWIE fans to meet a star of the show, winner of the YouTube Audience prize at the recent Baftas.

He added: “Everyone in the country has gone crazy for this, and we thought we would put this on to give people an opportunity to meet and greet one of the main stars of the show while it is not on TV.

“It’s his first time in St Albans as a celebrity in an official capacity.”

Adam added: “There are a lot of people who are going to come in with fake tans and stilettos – it’s not necessary, but I do know a lot of the girls have that planned.”

Havana has nearly sold all 100 VIP tickets for the evening, with just 20 remaining. However there are still 50 available for the main room.
