‘So handsome’

Meanwhile, plenty of people also left comments about Mark’s handsome appearance as a young man, including his co-star Nat Barr who wrote: “Those guns!”

“Absolute legend, so handsome,” one fan replied, with another writing, “OMG he’s really cute”.

“Sheesh,” a shocked follower commented, while a different user said, “Have not changed”.

Nat Barr's return to Sunrise

Mark’s sweet video comes shortly after Nat Barr returned to the Sunrise desk on Wednesday morning after isolating at home for a week with Covid.

The host admitted she was still feeling under the weather and joked that the lingering illness made her feel like she’s “had a couple of wines".

“I’ve got a sinus infection and I’m a bit light-headed. Apart from that, I’m great,” she laughed.
