The 51-year-old – who stars on the ITV game show alongside Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty, Paul Sinha and Jenny Ryan – appeared on Lorraine earlier today and said that he constantly wants to live up to the fact that he is the best at what he does.
He explained: “It’s what I do, to say I’m the best in the world at what I do is an arrogant statement but it’s true. I want to live up to that, all of us just want to be the best.
“It’s a constant job. Anne and I are constantly learning but there’s a reason why they asked us to do it.
“I’m batting at around 89 per cent, so it’s the remaining 11 per cent I have to work on. If I’m on the underground I’ll be looking at all the posters of the latest film and book releases.
“No one has proved an eidetic memory but some of us are pretty close to it.”

Mark's comments come after he punched the set of The Chase as his back was turned to the camera in the previous episode, which prompted host Bradley Walsh to shout out: "Ouch! That just shows you how they take it. They take it very badly."
One of the winning contestants, who had bagged £60,000, replied: "so do we! Yaaaaaaaaaay!"
Fans of the show clearly found the whole thing hilarious and took to Twitter soon after.
