Before venturing into the I’m A Celebrityâ€¦. Jungle, noone knew who Kayla Collins was, and unless you watch ITV2 when you’re bored, you probably still have no idea who Mark Wright is. But anyway, they’re dating.
Its important to point out that this doesn’t mean Kayla is Mark’s girlfriend, because we know how often he gets himself into sticky situations when he fails to differentiate between ‘girlfriend’ and someone he hangs out with.
He’s thrilled to bits with his latest bit of stuff though, mainly because he is the ex of his footie hero Ashley Cole – yep, we think it’s a bit weird too. But he couldn’t wait to tell The Sun; “Ashley Cole was an icon to me. I grew up wanting to be just like him. Now I’m dating his ex. You can’t argue with that.”
Speaking about the actual relationship, Mark said; “It’s early days with Kayla. She’s a lovely girl and we’re having a lot of fun. We were friendly when she was going out with Ashley, who I’ve met and is a cool guy. But she’s not now, so we’ve been spending time together. I’m not starstruck by her – I’ve got more Twitter followers than her so, you know…
“But I’m officially single so I can do what I like. I’m not tied to anyone. When I’m single I’m a ladies man. I’m just doing what any 23-year-old would want to do. Girls are showing me a lot of attention. I’m a young man and you only live once so you’ve got to go for it.
“One day I’ll be an old man looking at loads of young lads getting attention and dreaming of the old days. At the end of the day, I’m going for the ride and enjoying myself. It’s a boy’s dream I’ve got here and I’m living it.”
Brilliant. Have fun kids.
