Having touched down in Los Angeles last week it was only a matter of time before Mark Wright got his kit off to top up his tan.

The former TOWIE star didn't exactly have the tanning session that is accustom in Essex instead he headed to Muscle Beach for a work out session whilst the sun beat down on him.

Mark showed off his impressive body but was soon upstaged by a man in orange pants.

Wearing a pair of blue shorts and lime green trainers with blacked out sunglasses, Mark put himself through the paces as he pumped some iron.

The 25-year-old was accompanied to the beach, which is a prime location for bodybuilders and gymnasts, with a group of friends who also lifted some weights.

Wright who is currently filming scenes for his latest ITV2 show Mark Wright’s Hollywood Nights, soon made friends with a curly haired bodybuilder who offered him some tips of how to make the most of the outdoor equipment.

Mark appeared to get on well with the bodybuilder, who's choice of sportswear was questionable, as they were seen laughing as they talked.

Always busy, the King of Essex was pictured taking breaks from his work out to tend to business calls, however from the looks of best friend James 'Arg' Argent's recent Twitter feed, it could've been him calling in to check on his other half.

On Saturday Arg tweeted, 'My phone bill from speaking to @MarkWright_ everyday in LA is gona cost me a fortune! He better chip in the tight git lol x'.

Yesterday he tweeted, 'having such an amazing time in L.A with my boys i can't wait for u all to watch my new show Mark Wrights Hollywood Nights living the dream'.

But proving he's still true to his Buckhurst Hill beginnings, he admitted to the owner of Essex hotspot Nu Bar, Adam Brooks that LA was missing one this.

His tweet read, '@nubar_essex adam its amazing. L.A is unreal its just missing 1 thing !! A nu bar should planted in beverly hills what du think '
