The UK’s Love Island has Caroline Flack, Love Island USA has Arielle Vandenberg and now Temptation Island is breaking all the rules by having a man host the show.
Although Temptation Island isn’t strictly a dating show – it’s actually a social experiment – it is still an ‘island’ so we’ll be making all the comparisons we can.
Four unmarried couples embark on a relationship test like no other on a paradise island to see if their relationship is as strong as they’d like it to be. And holding their hands along the way is the show’s presenter, Mark.
So, who is Temptation Island host Mark Walberg? What else do we know about the TV presenter?
