Eastenders Jacqueline Jossa (Lauren) wouldn’t mind having TOWIE’s Mark Wright on the show!

The Only Way is Essex's Mark Wright spoke last week of his desire to land a  part in Eastenders. He said he'd had meetings with producers to play a 'hardman,' but reckoned he could 'pull anything off.'

So last  night at the Inside Soap Awards, we cornered Jacqueline Jossa who plays Lauren Branning in Eastenders to find out whether the cast would welcome him with open arms.

Jacqueline earned serious respect from us by answering the question with a perfect TOWIE impression: 'Oh shuuut uuuup.'

She then went on to say: "Do you know what, I think he's probably really talented. He's the only one on The Only Way is Essex that I actually believe! I think he's alright. Mark could get with Lauren!"

Although we think Mark has enough issues with a certain Lauren off-set let alone on as well. We think he should stick to TOWIE.
