If there is one time of the year you can have a messy crib it’s after throwing a New Year’s Eve party – but Mark Wright isn’t so sure he wants to do deal with the clean-up.
The former Towie star is evidently enjoying some time off with his wife Michelle Keegan over the festive break, but that doesn’t mean he’s about to tear his place apart in the name of celebrating the turn of the decade.
Well, without the twisting of the arm, anyway.
The 32-year-old presenter and his actor wife are planning to open the doors to their home for family and friends on 31 December, but he’s not very excited about the idea because he suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).
He said: ‘We’re thinking of hosting a New Year’s Eve party but I’ve got OCD so I hate having parties. I’m just debating it at the moment.
‘I just hate a mess in my house.’
He continued: ‘When I had a party before, during summer, I actually rented portable loos and put them out on my drive so nobody could go inside.’
That’s a smart idea, whether you like mess or not, tbh.
If he does have a party, Mark added he likes to have a theme to his bashes – so we can expect something glorious for NYE, we suppose.
He said: ‘I think having a theme is a great idea because it gets people talking about the party.
‘There’s more of a reason to be there – have a fancy dress or a white dresscode party, whatever it may be.’
Oh, and there will be dancing. How they will dance.
‘You don’t need to be a good dancer. It’s fine, as long as you’re having a laugh and look like you’re getting involved,’ Mark said. ‘I tried to learn salsa in Miami and by the end of it, I was like, “Just get in there and let’s do it”.’

Mark returned to the UK earlier this year after spending two years working on TV show Extra in America and he’s delighted to be back amongst his family and friends.
He continued to Closer magazine: ‘It’s good to be home.
‘All the things I didn’t think I’d miss, I did, which is everything. Just little things like going to the pub.’
