Mark Wright responds to Love Island’s Luca Bish saying he is ‘not all that’

Mark Wright has responded to Luca Bish’s dig on Monday’s episode of Love Island where he claimed the former TOWIE star is ‘not all that’ and ‘punching big time’ with his wife Michelle Keegan.

The TV presenter, 35, said he was ‘minding my own business (literally sleeping)’ while visiting Michelle, 35, on location in Sydney, Australia, and woke up thinking ‘what did I do?’ amid the unexpected commotion.  

Luca, 23, who has previously revealed he has a crush on the actress asked his fellow Islanders what they thought of Mark’s looks.   

Chatting with Adam Collard in the garden, he said: ‘Oi Adam, would you say Mark Wright’s really good-looking?’

‘What did I do?’ Mark Wright has responded to Luca Bish’s dig on Monday’s episode of Love Island where he said the former TOWIE star is ‘not all that’

Adam said he thought the presenter was ‘pretty good-looking’ but Luca disagreed and said he was ‘not all that’ and is ‘punching big time’ in his relationship with Michelle.

Although he is currently in Australia, Mark still heard about the clip and wanted to know what he had done to deserve such cutting remarks. 

Sharing a photo of himself looking baffled in bed, Mark wrote: ‘8:30am in Sydney…. minding my own business (literally sleeping) Waking up like…. What did I do? #Luca’. 

Several users commented on Mark’s post, with one saying Luca ‘really came for you out of nowhere’.

Luca shocked his fellow Love Islanders after claiming he isn’t punching above his weight in his coupling with Gemma Owen.

The fishmonger was slammed by viewers on Twitter when he made the surprise remark during a chat with the boys about Michael Owen’s daughter, 19, which soon prompted Paige to spread the gossip.

After joking that Mark Wright isn’t very good looking, he admitted he believes he hasn’t been ‘punching’ with his partner on the show, which Adam agreed with.

Overhearing his comments, a surprised Paige soon ran over to Gemma, who had been minding her own business in the pool, to tell her the news.

She blurted out: ‘He reckons he’s not punching with you and I was like, “Yes you are.”‘

The girls soon said, ‘What?’ with Gemma asking what the phrase meant. Danica then explained, ‘So he thinks he’s better. He’s punching… is he joking?’

Overhearing the exchange, Luca – who has been showering Gemma with affection throughout the series – walked over saying, ‘What are you on about?’ with Adam defending his pal, adding, ‘No, I don’t think he’s punching.’

Fans of the show soon flooded Twitter with their shock at the ‘triggering’ statement, telling the Brighton-native to ‘behave himself’ while questioning what mirror he has been looking in.  

They wrote: ‘Luca has probably just dropped to bottom with that comment. To actually say out loud that he isn’t punching, shows he cares more about himself than Gemma. #LoveIsland.’

‘Ain’t no way Luca has just said he ain’t punching with Gemma… what mirror is he looking in cus he definitely ain’t looking at himself #loveisland #LoveIslandUK #luca #gemmaowen.’
