Mark Wright seen for first time smiling in snow since being hauled off at half-time in horror Crawley debut

MARK WRIGHT refused to let his horror full debut ruin his week – as he posted a photo all smiles in the snow.

The reality TV star, 34, has signed for League Two outfit Crawley and came on in the FA Cup win over Leeds.

And after self-isolating with wife Michelle Keegan following a Covid outbreak at the club, he was handed his first EFL start on Saturday afternoon for the clash against Harrogate at home.

But it went horribly wrong for the left-back as Crawley fell 3-0 behind by half-time – enough for manager John Yems to haul the ex-TOWIE man off.

Wright, though, took to Instagram on Monday night to show how he had put the stinker behind him.

He enjoyed the winter weather by heading out and grabbing an espresso.

Wright wrote to his 1.8million followers: "Blitz out here…. Small coffee or big fella??"

Harry Redknapp was among those to comment on the post, adding a couple of praising-hands emojis.

Wright will be desperate to put in a better performance next weekend when the Red Devils travel north to Carlisle.

However, he may have to settle for a place on the bench after his replacement against Harrogate, Tom Dallison, scored eight minutes after coming on to reduce the deficit.

Boss Yems refued to pin the blame on the ex-Tottenahm youngster, though, and said: "It wasn't Mark's fault, but today it was farcical first half, absolutely farcical.

"It's easy for me to say that players have got to stand up and be counted, but they have now, if not there'll be changes and there will be changes."
