Former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright has stunned fans after sharing photos of himself partying with a Hollywood actor in Las Vegas on Friday. The 36-year-old, who is best known for starring in the E4 reality series, posted glamorous pictures of her stay in Sin City with Mark Wahlberg on Instagram this morning.
In the first photo of the carousel, both the celebrities can be seen standing next to each other and smiling with the view of the glittering Vegas skyline in the background. The next photo shows Wright and Wahlberg hanging out at a casino hotel, while a third photo shows the 52-year-old actor serving drinks to his new English friend at a swanky-looking bar.
The photo op appears to be a promotion for Wahlberg’s spirits brand, Flecha Azul Tequila, which was founded by Aaron Marquez in 2020. “STOPPPPP!!!” As The Mirror reports, Emmerdale star Adam Thomas wrote beneath the post apparently expressing his disbelief at the TOWIE icon’s new A-list friendship across the Atlantic.

This surprise was echoed by Geordie Shore’s Nathan Henry, who commented, “Wait, I’m so jealous.” “Okay, you’re officially awesome, Mark Wahlberg!!!” one fan wrote on Instagram, while another impressed follower insisted he was “living the dream!!”
If that wasn’t enough to make fans green with envy, Wright also shared a video of her lavish residence at the Palms Hotel. The football pundit stayed in the luxurious King’s Pin Suite for his epic trip to the Nevada capital, which featured a huge bar, a pool table, air hockey, even a five-lane bowling alley. He also visited Los Angeles earlier in the week, where he stayed at the equally luxurious Beverly Hills Hotel.

Wright, who is married to Coronation Street’s Michelle Keegan, recently came under fire when he and the soap star unveiled their home’s Christmas makeover. The famous couple took to Instagram to share a video of their £3.5 million mansion, which was decorated with fairy lights, reindeer statues and a lighted garland for the festivities.
However, not everyone agreed with the extraordinary change, with many accusing the couple of being insensitive towards the less fortunate during a life-threatening crisis.
