Mark came out as gay in August 2005, announcing he is in a long-term relationship with Kevin
McDaid from the boyband V.
Previously he was rumoured to be dating Mandy Moore (but it wasn't true, Shane spread the story
to wind Mark up!). 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

"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
"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!"

the fool again... "
