The TV presenter revealed that he is "genuinely petrified about dancing on national telly", but he can't wait "to get stuck in".
"Doing Strictly is going to be so completely different from anything I've done before. I'm the sort of guy who loves to bust out some moves at a party but I'm certainly not a natural dancer," he said.
"Any of my friends would tell you that - they call me 'Markey no-moves'! I'm genuinely petrified about dancing on national telly but Strictly is such an amazing show to be a part of and I can't wait to get stuck in and give it my all!".
TV presenter Mark rose to fame as part of the BAFTA award winning constructed reality show The Only Way is Essex in 2010 and since leaving the show has gone on to host a number of popular TV and radio programmes.
