Mark Wright has revealed his wife Michelle Keegan is worried about him due to his brutal daily schedule of juggling football, secret businesses and his radio presenting job.

The 34 year old achieved his dream and made his professional football debut playing for Crawley FC last month, distancing himself from his reality star title.

The achievement was no easy feat as he previously played for giants like Tottenham Hotspur, but a lapse in judgement and lavish Ibiza holiday where he ate and drank whatever he wanted got him kicked off the league.

Now, the TV personality is determined to make it big in the football industry, but isn't willing to let any of his other projects slip by, including his fitness app, radio job and behind-the-scenes businesses the public isn't aware of.

The pressure of keeping everything afloat has meant he only spends eight hours a day at home, with Mark confessing he's "burning himself out".

Speaking on his BBC documentary Mark Wright: The Last Chance, he explained that he'll do whatever it takes to continue doing everything he loves.

"I will fill every minute of the day with work if I have to," he said.

The star, who recently shared his support for Frank Lampard after he was sacked from Chelsea, continued: "My wife already says to me, 'What are you doing taking on another job, you’ve just taken on another business?'

"I set up different companies, I’ve got a lot of companies behind the scenes that people don't know about.

"Obviously I’m absolutely loving the football stuff because I'm doing it purely out of love and because I want to tick this box. I love being able to squeeze in my media stuff and radio.

"At the same time I'm shattered from football and doing gym. But I’m just going to make them both work. "

Mark went on to explain how being a footballer comes more naturally than his history of being on TV as a reality star.

He said: "It’s hard for people to see past what they know me for and being a professional footballer.

"Cause I know how I would feel if it was happening to someone else. You’d automatically think ‘What’s all this about?’.

"But I started as a footballer, I didn’t start as a TV presenter or TV personality. Those things don’t come naturally to me. Those were the hardest things I’ve had to work on.

"If someone said to me what’s your talent, which gets said a lot, I’d say football."
