A source revealed to The Sun: 'Mark really impressed the producers on The Challenge and they signed him up immediately. It is a big deal as it is the first time the show is being made with UK stars.

'Mark filmed the series at the end of last month in Argentina and he'll be seen on screen as the celebrities take on a series of tough challenges.

'It is a role that was made for Mark because he loves fitness and is competitive. He got really stuck in during filming and if a second series is commissioned, the production wants Mark on board again.'
