Romford boss Glenn Tamplin has moved to bring in former TOWIE star Mark Wright to the club as a joint-owner alongside himself.
The 32-year-old, who is married to Michelle Keegan and has rose to fame being a TV personality, is joining Boro as joint-owner and to play left-back for the Isthmian North outfit.
Wright gained his popularity after appearing on the eleventh series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! where he finished as runner-up, and the twelfth series of Strictly Come Dancing, where he finished in fourth place.
