A MAN who has rubbed shoulders with royalty and celebrity spoke about his "ghastly" experience of meeting clubgoers in a Bolton mosh pit.

But he also confessed that he had had a "whale of a time" and loved his time in The Alma Inn in Bradshawgate.

Made in Chelsea reality star, Mark Francis Vandelli, 36, appeared on Good Morning Britain to explain to presenters Ben Shepherd and Kate Garraway his efforts among a maxed out death metal crowd.

The show is part of a new six-part TV series called Big Night Out in which the posh boy swaps balls and banquets for kebabs and pints with some of the UK’s most hardcore party-goers.

The socialite and heir to a multi-million pound fortune, who was described by Garraway as "the poshest person she had ever met", described the Bolton experience.

He said: "Watching that clip is one of the most mortifying things. I didn't know what a mosh pit was, I have never been in a mosh pit and it was really quite ghastly."

When asked about what he thought about being the only person in the Alma wearing a three piece suit he responded: "I don't think any of them in there owned a suit!"

He added, he would not be repeating his death metal experience in a hurry.

Kelly Lynn, executive producer at the company Monkey, which was commissioned by Channel 4 said : “It is safe to say Mark Francis has never been more out of his comfort zone in this hilarious six-part series.

"I think viewers will be surprised to see how much he thrives in certain situations… and at some points he even looks like he’s having fun. With a number of unlikely new friends by his side and no Victoria Baker Harber in sight, this really is an insight into the mysterious Mark Francis.”

Although Mark's first impressions of Bolton were not good, by the end of the show he confessed he found the mosh experience "cleansing" and said he felt like he had had an "exorcism".
