What happened to having a drink with Emily Mark Wright enjoys his homecoming and cosies up to Pat Sharp”s daughter instead
He seemed to be on course for a jungle relationship when he was seen flirting with model Emily Scott on I”m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.
But Mark Wright later spurned any chances of the two getting together when he said he was not interested in a relationship with her.
And, despite Emily saying that she would go to Essex for a drink with the runner-up, she was nowhere to be seen at Mark”s homecoming party at famous TOWIE haunt Nu Bar in Loughton.

But his other jungle friends were on hand to join in the festivities, including Jessica Jane-Clement.
The stunning model arrived with her fianc Lee Stafford, wearing a navy blue mini dress and black heels.
But she wasn”t the only camp mate who turned up to have a drink with Mark.
Competitive celebrity Fatima Whitbread arrived wearing black trousers and a printed top – and luckily her famous cockroach was no where in sight.
The former athlete was obviously enjoying herself as she clutched a glass of wine and received a kiss on the cheek from Mark.
They were also joined by Mark”s friends James “Arg” Argent and the widowed husband of Jade Goody, Jack Tweed.

Both Jack and Arg went for brightly coloured sweaters, Arg going for a purple number while Jack opted for a dainty pink colourway.
The crew partied inside the Loughton club, although he was scheduled to host a party at Aura in London”s West End later in the evening.
In the Australian jungle it appeared as though Mark and Emily would become an item after some outrageous flirting.

But, after his exit Mark told The Sun newspaper: “Emily is a lovely person and a very pretty girl but there is no romantic interest there for me and I am not interested in starting a relationship with her.
“When you are in the jungle you have a bit of a friendly flirt but that is as far as it went. I am single and want to be on my own. I won”t deny she is a good catch but that is not how I feel about her.”
And, to hammer a further nail in the coffin, he repeated himself on This Morning.

He told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “Do you know what, we had so many conversations in there, it wasn’t until I got out that loads of people were asking me “What’s happening with you and Emily”
“I was like “Nothing, why do you say that” [and they said] you were flirting loads.”
He also explained his naked bathing, blaming it on his trials rather than any attempt to impress Emily.
Mark said: “The reason why I bathed naked…they said to you before, ‘If you ever want to bathe naked it’s fine, we’re obviously not going to show your bits. And I’d done a trial and had all cockroaches and dust down my pants.”
Adding that although he knows Emily fancies him, the feelings aren’t mutual: “It’s an absolute privilege to hear that a beautiful girl fancies me and she really is a lovely person”
