Mark Wright fears he cheated on wife Michelle Keegan in Northumberland Castle

Presenter Mark Wright grew concerned he’d accidentally cheated on wife Michelle Keegan ‘with a ghost’ after he stayed in a haunted house for new show A Wright Family Holiday

The presenter, 36, got the chills when he stayed at Chillingham Castle in Northumberland for his new BBC show A Wright Family Holiday, spending a night in the 800-year old castle with his dad Mark Senior and his brother Josh.

Mark Junior reportedly went to bed wearing underwear but woke up completely naked, leaving him jokingly wondering if something had happened with a ghost in the night.

In the upcoming episode, he wonders: “Do you think it would be classed as cheating… having a little slap and tickle with a ghost? I didn’t see one… unless I slept through it.”

The Wright family have been on quite the adventure for their latest reality show, which sees the three men head off on a road trip across the UK as they bond with each other and open up on their family relationship.

Appearing on This Morning to discuss the show alongside his dad and brother, Mark said: “I don’t think we realised individually how much we had to get off our chests.

“We’re never really together just us three, normally our wives are there, so we don’t really get to talk.

“I think we all came out with stuff that we needed to. Men need to talk, women need to talk, everyone needs to talk and we really aired things.

“My dad said one of the things that upset him about the trip but he’s glad it happened was we both told him some issues that we’ve got and that we never told him sooner.”

Mark senior then apologised for tearing up as he said: “I wish they’d come to me years ago.

“Things came out in our conversations that I was quite emotional they didn’t come to me about, they kept it within. I keep things in, I should be more outgoing with talking but I’m not.”

Yorkie’s ‘not for girls’ advert from 2002 has gone viral and people can’t believe it aired



With over two decades passing, some people are only just discovering the Yorkie ‘not for girls’ advert from 2002, and they can’t believe it.

That’s right, over 20 years have passed and younger generations are only just coming across the advert for Nestle’s thick milk chocolate bar, with mixed opinions on it.

Many can’t believe it made it onto TV, while others think the advert was ‘proper genius’ and ‘just a joke’. Either way, all would agree it probably wouldn’t go down so well today.

The Yorkie slogan in 2002 went as follows: “Five big chunks of masculine chocolate. Yorkie… it’s not for girls.”

The advert shows a woman disguising herself as a man to try to purchase a Yorkie bar from the shop.

But she is challenged by the male shopkeeper to answer a series of ‘manly’ questions to prove her ‘masculinity’ as the bar is branded as ‘not for girls’.
The advert has cropped up again on social media, and many have been sharing their opinions on the ad.

One person recalled: “As a girl I simply accepted the fact I would be arrested for attempting to buy a Yorkie.”

While another chimed in: “Yep, and I remember the massive kick off. I haven’t bought a Yorkie since.”

Others said they thought it was a great marketing tactic from Nestle seeing as it caused many women to head out to buy a bar in defiance, and many men choosing the chocolate while enjoying and benefitting from the ride – a successful marketing campaign, for sure.

Do you remember the advert well? See the video below either for the first time or to brush up on your early 2000’s tv knowledge!

Sir Michael Parkinson has died.



Broadcaster Sir Michael Parkinson has died at the age of 88, the BBC has announced.

The former journalist was one of British television’s most famous faces through his talk show Parkinson, which initially ran on the BBC from 1971 to 1982.

He relaunched the show on the BBC in 1998 before it moved to ITV in 2004, until he retired the programme in 2007.

Over more than 800 episodes, Sir Michael interviewed some of the world’s most high-profile figures – including Muhammad Ali, Sir Elton John and George Michael – and helped make comedian Sir Billy Connolly a household name.

But despite his long and industrious career, Sir Michael’s 2003 interview with Meg Ryan went down in history as one of his most memorable shows.

The chat show king was faced with a stony-faced Ryan, who delivered one-word answers as she promoted her poorly received erotic thriller The Cut.

More than 20 years later, he offered an apology to the actress and admitted neither of them were on “top form”.

In 2013, Sir Michael revealed he was being treated for prostate cancer – but said he had no intention of stopping working.
