We were welcomed by a good-humoured bloke, with boyish charm and a great personality when Mark O’Dea stepped into Celebrity Fitness ready to get a good workout in and to talk to us at Rojak Daily about everything from fitness routines to his favourite Malaysian football team.
Mark O’Dea is a British-born singer, previously 8TV Quickie presenter, currently a host on Wishlist on AstroSupersport and YouTuber originally from England. O’Dea came to Malaysia in 2013 as a member of the boy band, The London Boys, to tour around Kuala Lumpur. Currently, he is based in KL and has a hit YouTube channel which features song covers and pranks, and a travel show with over a million views. He was also on the cover of Men’s Health Magazine’s May 2015 issue, showing off his rock-hard abs.
There is no alter ego when he comes on television apart from making sure the enthusiasm is always up no matter how bad of a day he is having. The chemistry he shares with his co-hosts is genuine as well. A prime example of talent sculpted and accustomed to allure the hearts and eyes of many.
We bump into Mark O’dea at Celebrity Fitness in One Utama and asked him ‘Kaypoh’ quick fire questions about his workout tips, favourite gym pick-up line, football, pet peeves and more.
