'Who does he think he's kidding?' Mark Wright is accused of stuffing his skimpy underwear with socks as he shares VERY revealing video
He's set to spend as much as eight months apart from his wife Michelle Keegan as she shoots the latest season of her hit TV show Our Girl.
And Mark Wright, 30, could well have been showing his stunning spouse what she's missing on Sunday, when he took to Instagram to share a short, slow motion video of himself strutting in the Majorca sunshine while wearing skimpy tight, white briefs.
However, the healthy endowment subsequently displayed in his smalls prompted an army of followers to accuse the former TOWIE star of stuffing his underwear with socks, with one mockingly enquiring: 'Who does he think he's kidding?'

'Socks [are] supposed to be on your feet,' said a third, whose comment came ahead of a follower who chose to mention his ex Lauren Goodger, writing: 'Jesus Christ! No wonder Lauren is still so gutted! Good for Michelle!'
Mark uploaded the video as he shoots scenes for Take Me Out's spin-off show The Gossip on the ITV dating favourite's fictional Isle Of Fernandos.

Seemingly expecting a storm of doubtful comments, the TV personality ended his post with the hashtag: '#ipromisethatsnotabanana'.
While an overwhelming number of commenters insisted that everything from socks to bananas to a Sunday dinner were packed into his underwear, a comparatively quieter scattering of fans were decidedly happy with what they saw.

Coming away with a totally different perspective on life. Feeling very blessed and thankful. #itsthelittlethings #glasshalffull #ourgirl3.'

'You just get used to it,' the heartthrob declared. 'When the first one comes out, you realise there’s absolutely no truth in it – the reason why you’re in trouble, you’ve never heard of before.
'So you just kind of laugh at it and move on and wait for the next one. In the end, you ignore it. You don’t even read them.'
The loved-up pair met during a new year's holiday to Dubai back in December 2012, with Mark popping the question in the Middle Eastern holiday hotspot in September 2013.
Although Mark is a happily married man and firmly off the market, he's still involved in the dating world with his role as host of Take Me Out: The Gossip.

Mark explained that the job was a natural fit as he's always been a match-maker, with mixed success.
Friends even called him Hitch, after the dating coach played by Will Smith in the 2005 Hollywood romantic comedy.
'Some of my friends have got me in their phone as Hitch. When we were younger and we were all dating, I used to give them advice,' Mark told MailOnline.
'I don't know that it worked because they are all with different partners now.
'When I got offered the job [as co-host of Take Me Out: The Gossip] I thought, "Oh my God it's perfect, I do this for free for my friends, now I can do it for my job". It's a dream job; I genuinely love it.'
Mark said that he can predict the couples that will click and the ones that won't.
'I always predict the ones that will click. When I get there and I meet them and I hear that these two are getting on well, I think "Right, well I can't see it, they are going to be split up by tomorrow morning and she's going to be seeing him instead".
'And sometimes I get it right to be fair. I think I'm a pretty good judge.'
The fitness fanatic said that it was the sheer variety of the contestants looking for love on the show which made him enjoy co-hosting The Gossip so much.

He told MailOnline: 'Each week there's a different group and everyone is so different. There are so many girls who are loud, confident, first-up-on-the-dancefloor kind of girls and boys that are the same.
'Then we're got the shy boys and the shy girls, the people who are a bit wild and wacky. But I love them all because they are so different and bring so much to the table.'
The star, who was one of the original cast members of TOWIE when it launched back in October 2010, admitted he still watches the show.
'Of course I still watch TOWIE,' he declared. 'I love it. I’m a massive fan of the show. I love sitting on the couch and being this side of the camera rather than in front of the camera.'
Oh baby! Michelle recently admitted that she's not particularly broody at the moment
Mark - who joined the show with his then long-term girlfriend Lauren Goodger, 30 - credited his success to the ITVBe reality series and admitted it even helped him meet Michelle.
He explained: 'I look back at TOWIE fondly. What that show did for me changed my life. While doing it, it is a hard job. You put your personal life on the line hence I left as soon as I had the opportunity to leave.
'I didn't enjoy that part of it but with my friends like Arg, it was fun to film.'
'When I met with the company about it, I thought, "If this gets commissioned it will probably be on at three in the morning on channel 982".
'Suddenly I got a phone call and they said, "Yes, it's been commissioned for ITV2". And then it suddenly blew up and my life changed completely.'

Mark also discussed keeping in shape, admitting he is struggling to find the time to workout more than once or twice a week, thanks to his demanding filming schedule.
He told MailOnline: 'I like to go to the gym three times a week but in the last few months it's been twice a week or once a week.
'I do eat a lot of food but I'm careful it's the right sort. But I do always have a cheat meal. I eat a chocolate bar every day.'
Reflecting on his meteoric rise to fame from Essex club promoter to prime-time TV presenter, Mark concluded: 'I met my wife in the industry. I am presenting a radio show on my favourite radio channel since I was a kid, I present a dating show on ITV.
'Everything's Wright right now, sorry about the pun.'
