Mark Wright looks set to take his presenting talents across the pond, as he has reportedly landed a big hosting gig in the US.

Not only that, but the former TOWIE star has also apparently nabbed a huge interview with One Direction's Niall Horan to get things started.

As The Sun first reported, Mark has been hired as a correspondent on US show Extra, which includes big names such as Mario Lopez, as well as Tracey Edmonds and Charissa Thompson.

The gossip show provides coverage of entertainment and celebrities, and has been running since 1994.

His first piece for the show is a behind-the-scenes chat with Niall on the set of his upcoming music video.

The presenter has been out in the US in recent weeks, apparently having meetings with networks.

However, this is not Mark's first stint in the States, having signed up last year to take his CBBC series The Dengineers over there. The show sees a team of designers and engineers create luxury dens for youngsters.

In short, it seems that the Take Me Out: The Gossip presenter has come a long way from the days of TOWIE.

However, he did make a return during last year's 200th episode special, so it seems that it's not entirely in his past.
