Mark Wright vows to STREAK on the pitch if England beat Scotland at Euro 2020

Mark Wright has said he might streak on the pitch if England trump Scotland during the highly-anticipated Euro 2020 game on Friday night.

The former TOWIE star, 34, who has landed a Sky Sports Euro presenting role, has revealed he is considering stripping off if England win. 

And Mark said there is fierce rivalry between himself and wife Michelle Keegan‘s dad Michael, who is Scottish, and said if Scotland win, her father will be blocked from his phone ‘for at least a month’.    

Cheeky! Mark Wright has said he might streak on the pitch if England trump Scotland during the highly-anticipated Euro 2020 game on Friday night 

Mark told The Sun: ‘I’m going to the game at Wembley… I watched the 1996 fixture at Wembley when Gazza scored that goal in the Euros. It was a moment I’ll never forget.   

‘If Phil Foden or Jack Grealish can be our modern-day Gazza tonight and I’m there to witness it, it will be a dream come true. I might streak on the pitch. 

‘My father-in-law, Michelle’s dad, he’s Scottish, and he wants Scotland to win massively. Me and him love each other to bits, but tomorrow night, when that game’s on, we’re going to be taunting each other big time.’

Mark added that if England win, Michael will be ‘getting ribbed’ and if they lose, his number will be getting ‘blocked for at least a month’ as he would ‘love-hate him for that period of time’.

Another star who is looking forward to the match is Lorraine Kelly who will be repping her native Scotland on Friday at Wembley Stadium and joining her will be Spice Girl Mel C – there to cheer on the opposing team. 

Yet Lorraine insisted to MailOnline that any rivalry will be sports-womanly and cordial – and that she was one of the first to chat to Mel and her fellow Spice Girls when they were catapulted to stardom in 1996 with their debut single Wannabe.

Earlier this week, it was claimed that Mark is reportedly earning £2,500 per show covering the Euros 2020 in weekday episodes on Sky Sports.

The former TOWIE star is hosting the daily 7am to 10am show with Bela Shah, and is said to be taking home £12,500 a week which equates to over £50,000 by the end of the championship.  

An insider told The Sun: ‘Mark is a popular face on telly so managed to negotiate an amazing deal. It is great money to talk about football, which he loves doing anyway. It’s a win-win.

‘The first show last Friday got double the normal viewers for the slot, so Sky Sports feels like it’s money well spent.’

MailOnline contacted Mark’s representatives for comment.  

During the first show, which aired last Friday, Mark and Bela were joined by presenter Olly Murs. 

Mark was a semi-professional football player and he signed to League Two team Crawley Town in West Sussex in December. 

However, he only made an appearance on the pitch twice before he was released from his contract in May.
