Mark's family waved him off at the airport on Monday, and Mark shared a snap of his loved ones, writing: "It's a goodbye for a while to this lot. Jeez that wasn't easy. Nothing beats having a family like mine. All up at 5:30am to take me to the airport. I have the best family in world. The love and support we have for each other is beyond. Family and love is everything and now marrying into my beautiful wife's family, I have 2. I feel like the luckiest man on the planet. I love you guys. See you soon."

Mark has kept his fans updated on his first few days in the US via Instastories. In one clip, he revealed that his make-up needed to be touched up due to the hot weather, joking: "My boy keeps me dry on set because it's so sweating. He puts this white powder on me - I don't even know what it is - but it dries me up!" Speaking about his new position back in August, the former TOWIE star said in a statement: "I feel so honoured to be given a job on such a massive show in America, interviewing the biggest stars in the world, and working alongside Mario Lopez who I watched and loved growing up."

He continued: "Lisa G, the boss at EXTRA, didn't know me before meeting her. I asked for a meeting, and she believed in me from seeing my showreel. She gave me a chance by allowing me to interview Mariah Carey and from that she has now given me this amazing opportunity to work on the show full time. It's all a bit surreal."
