Fans of dating show Take Me Out may remember contestant Natalie Hawker – and her 30GG boobs – who went on to become something a favourite with former TOWIE star Mark Wright…

He apparently interviewed her on Take Me Out’s ITV2 spin-off show The Gossip, and it was on the set of the show that Natalie says Mark first chatted her up. She further claims that she and Mark then had a “passionate” fling that lasted nearly a year.

However, in an interview with the TV Biz, Natalie reckons that Mark kept their romance under wraps, fearing it could cost him his job. And she also had a few words of advice for Mark’s new girlfriend, Corrie star Michelle Keegan…

Natalie began by saying of how her affair with Mark began, “He was scared. It was ridiculous.

“He would be introduced to me by the crew as a stranger when the fact was I had already ripped his pants off.

“The first time he even knew I was on the show was when we met on set. I didn’t say anything and neither did he.

“But for three episodes of The Gossip he interviewed me like we were strangers. Afterwards he would text me begging me not to say a word.

“He said his producers had grilled him about whether or not we had slept together. He said he’d told them ‘No’ and I’d have to do the same.

“I must have been mad thinking he would want a normal relationship.”

Of Mark’s romance with Michelle – who plays Tina McIntyre on Corrie – Natalie said, “He loves himself and the idea of fame, so being with a soap star will suit him for now.

“But Michelle should know what he is like and how he thinks.


“She probably thinks Mark is as sweet as I did. The truth is he is a cheat who uses women to get what he wants then runs a mile.”

Natalie went on to say that she first slept with Mark while he was dating his TOWIE star Lauren Goodger in February last year.

And of times when she and Mark were together, Natalie said, “I remember wondering why Mark wasn’t with her.

“Then I got a message from him asking where I was and if he could pick me up.

“I told him ‘Faces’ and he said he’d be over. He must have known Lauren was there because it was like a spy film. He told me to go outside and he’d stop in a black car.

“A car pulled up and the door flew open. He had a driver and Mark was ducking down in the passenger seat.

“He shouted, ‘Get in, babe!’ I was laughing out loud but he said it again. I clambered in and we were off.

“Soon we were in Mark’s bedroom, which was black and white with a queen-sized bed with black sheets and a flat-screen TV.

“We had sex and it was OK. Mark has a nice body but he seemed preoccupied. I asked him if he was still with Lauren.

“He insisted he was not — I believed him.”

The paper adds, “A spokeswoman for Take Me Out said they were aware Wright and Natalie knew each other but not that they had had an intimate relationship.

“Wright’s spokesman declined to comment.”
