The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright is a hit at Cleethorpes' Amishi
WITH his perfect tan and "reem" smile, Mark Wright was every girl's dream man in Cleethorpes at the weekend.
Hundreds of adoring female fans were dressed to impress The Only Way Is Essex star at the Amishi nightclub.
Girls queued around the club just to have a quick picture and to meet the handsome presenter of ITV2's Take Me Out: The Gossip.
When he walked onto the stage, wearing a tight, white T-shirt, he shouted: "The only way is Cleethorpes!"

And of course, fans screamed loudly in reply, leaning over barriers to touch their "Mr Wright".
"All you lovely ladies in Cleethorpes are fit," he said to audience, "And I'm single!"
Greeting Telegraph reporter Lucy Greensmith with a kiss and a hug, he said: "I'm not supposed to speak to the press, but for you, I will.
"I am very grateful for the response in Cleethorpes, and Amishi is a lovely club.
"I have received fantastic hospitality from everyone and I can't thank everyone enough.
"People are very friendly and made me feel very welcome, even though I am a long way from home.
"I want to thank everyone once again for coming to meet me, and I have to say, everyone has been so nice here.
"I'm going back home after this; it will be a long, tiring drive."
As reported, Mark postponed his original appearance in the resort last year because of filming commitments, but he was determined not to let fans down.
Super-fan Jess Fixter, 22, of Scartho, was nervous yet excited to meet the TV star.
"I love The Only Way Is Essex. I'm also a huge fan of Take Me Out: The Gossip – I think he's a really good presenter," she said.
"He's really fit and looked just as good in real life as he does on television.
"I was disappointed when he cancelled last year, so I've been looking forward to this night for ages.
"I thought I would go all embarrassed and bright red when I met him, and fortunately I didn't faint!"
Co-owner of Amishi, Graham Franklin, said: "Girls just go crazy for Mark Wright. They will do anything to try and see him, and they were following him around the club while he was being escorted by security guards.
"Mark is a really nice guy, and he was really genuine to chat with.
"I think he's one of the most popular stars with the ladies; it must be his looks and charm.
"I think it is important to make people's nights out more interesting, rather than just having a drink and a dance."
