Former TOWIE person Mark Wright appears to be friends with Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown, which is a bit of a surprise.

Mark announced as much on Instagram, praising Millie as "down to earth" and "talented", and calling her his "friend".

He wrote, alongside a selfie of the pair: "Not only is this 1, one of the most naturally talented actress's on the planet, she is one of the sweetest and most down to earth young ladies I know who I have the pleasure to call my friend.

"Safe to say she's been brought up perfectly and I love her family so much who will for sure be my friends for life. #Bobby #Kelly #Paige#Charlie #Ava@milliebobbybrown."

It's perhaps less surprising if you've followed Mark's career post-TOWIE, as he's now a big Hollywood correspondent on Extra in the US.

Nevertheless, Mark still described his recent presenting job on This Morning as "the pinnacle" of his career.

Despite having an established job in LA, the reality star turned TV presenter told The Sun that his role as a guest host on Friday's (August 24) This Morning was "a dream come true".

"I had some tears in the dressing room when I came off," he admitted, before adding that just thinking about the job makes him teary.

"I almost cried again just then," he said.

Meanwhile, Millie recently revealed she'd like to see her Stranger Things character Eleven "really sacrifice her powers".

During a Q&A hosted by MTV journalist Josh Horowitz after a Stranger Things screening at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Millie said (via Variety): "I think Eleven should sacrifice herself in some way. That's how I kind of want that situation to go."
