The 25-year-old revealed via his Twitter account that he will be making his dream move to the glitzy town with aspirations to be as big as Russell Brand.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star will say goodbye to London after being signed up by a top Hollywood agent who looks after talent including Piers Morgan and Ryan Seacrest.

He met some of his new management team, last night, during dinner at Nobu in London, and is excited at the prospect of becoming a big name in the States.

It is thought that the Take Me Out: The Gossip presenter will relocate to America for two months but will hope to stay there for longer if acting roles fall in his lap.

Although Mark has not revealed what his first film could be, insiders claim it is going to be an action flick.

Mark has long harboured ambitions to make a name for himself in Hollywood and he said last year: 'My grandad told me before he died that if you don’t reach for the stars you won’t get there. I want to be James Bond one day. Nothing fazes me. I want to be a massive Hollywood actor.'
