He was also rumoured to have dated a model named Lauren Gold for a while (she starred in Robbie William's video "Rock DJ" as the DJ). Lauren accompanied him to the premiere of teen movie Coyote Ugly (see the pic of them together below). Mark said that they met at a party in London and thought she was very nice, but due to both their busy schedules the relationship wasn't serious. Mark also dated Page 3 glamour model Ebony. Mark was also rumoured to be going out with Cathy Newell from Irish girl group Bellefire (who, like Westlife, are managed by Louis Walsh). His first kiss: was in a very romantic location on holiday in France while on an exchange trip. She was an Irish girl and he thought the kiss was disgusting for about two sceonds before deciding he really liked it! Fave one-liner:Here love, here's 2 kroner - ring your mum and tell her you won't be home! Romantic move (eg. flowers):flowers, disco, dinner, home to bed!
"Louis has Spice Girls-type names for us, but we're not telling you what they are 'cos we don't want everyone to start using them!" "When I was in the Scouts we put on a play and I had to dress up as a woman! I was in a small scene with another guy, he was dressed up as a sporty woman and I was working a posh look. I was wearing a scarf, my mum's high heels, earrings, a skirt and her big coat from about 20 years ago! It was in front of my whole parish - can you imagine how embarrasing that was?" "My auntie has a new born kitten and it was gorgeous, I was cuddling it and I wouldn't let it go. Next thing I knew it has weed all over my smart top that I was wearing to go out for lunch!" "I was meeting my girlfriend's parents for the first time and trying to sound like the nicest little kid ever. They asked about my interests and I said, 'I like singing, dancing, acting, and go-karting.' Their faces dropped and I got a huge lecture about the dangers of go-karting and was warned never to take their daughter near a go-kart , it was sooooo embarrassing." "After a tasty chicken dinner I like a big bowl of juicy strawberries- with a huge dollop of ice cream on 'em!" - Mark on his favourite pudding "It's about a guy that's been fooled again and he can't believe that he's the fool again cos he was the fool before and now he's the fool again... " - Mark talking about - you guessed it! - Fool Again "Mark has a unique R & B soul voice. For a white person, you don't usually get someone as talented as Mark" - Nicky on Mark "Sleep." -on what he does when he's not performing "Mark's the best at that. He could sleep on a nail." - Bryan on Mark's favourite pastime... "When I got my head shaved, it was all over the papers. It's weird that when you get a haircut you are in the papers, it's pretty stupid" "Before I was in the band, I thought Dolce & Gabbana was a type of pizza..." Nicky on Mark: "He'd hate it if he was made to feel like he didn't have a life of his own"
Did You Know...?
Mark is really good at speaking Irish! His 'Spice Girl' nickname was "Homesick Spice" because he always gets homesick when he leaves his family (bless!). Mark thinks his nose is too big (Whatever you say Mark, it's not!!) He has a birthmark on his back which he refers to as a 'splodge'. Strangely, his brother Colin's got one as well! Mark had a part in a Cub Scouts play - and he had to dress as a woman, complete with clip-on earrings and a dash of eye shadow! He always keeps his toothbrush in a glass by the sink - and he goes mad if anyone moves it! He once had a job in a restaurant - he was paid £2.60 an hour - and used to have to clean the toilets as part of his job. But.....the worst job he ever had was in Burger King He once claimed to have an extremely talented left eyebrow and that his right toe was his most sexy 'bit'! Mark loves nothing more than slobbing on the couch at home and watching TV. He prefers a shower to a bath. He first went on stage in the school production 'Scrooged'. One of his biggest ambitions is to meet Michael Jackson Mark prays every night His fave subject at school was French language Mark says he would pose naked, but only if he was paid a million pounds! According to the other lads, Mark is the biggest liar in the band! Nicky claims Mark often lies about his age when chatting up girls. His fave pizza topping is chicken, ham, mushroom and pineapple He has ambitions to write a full musical Mark cried on camera when the band suprised someone on Cilla's TV show 'Suprise Suprise' Mark's top 5 smells are: 1. Cut grass 2. Strawberry - scented soap 3. Pipe tobacco (although he doesn't like smoking) 4. His Granny's freshly baked soda bread 5. Girls' freshly washed hair.
