Jessica Wright reveals she's marrying fiance William Lee-Kemp in September after Covid ruined wedding plans

JESSICA Wright will finally get to marry the man of her dreams in September after the coronavirus delayed her nuptials.

The former Towie star will wed fiancée William Lee Kemp, 37, in September after originally planning to get married in Mallorca in June.

After much debate around whether to downsize their wedding and host it in England, the couple decided to stick to their "dream" of marrying abroad.

"I really feel for all brides out there. Every day, we have been back and forth trying to decide what to do – I've been driving myself insane with it," she told Hello!.

"We always wanted to get wed abroad with all our family and friends, but we have explored every option, different dates, different places.

"A few weeks ago I said to Will: 'Shall we have a smaller wedding here in England?' But he said: 'No, it is our dream to marry abroad with family and friends. It wouldn't be right to change that now.'"

Jess plans to have 15 bridesmaids including sister Natlya and famous sister-in-law, Michelle Keegan, while her brother Mark Wright will act as master of ceremonies.

"It gives more time for things to get back to normal and for all our nearest and dearest to be there," Jess explained about her wedding's new September date.

"I have definitely relaxed since setting the new date. I can't wait to wear my dress – I just want to do it now."

Jess said of her fiancée: "I am very lucky to have him and we have an amazing bond. We are more of a team than ever before. If any year is testament to the strength of a relationship, it is this year in lockdown. I can't wait for us to be husband and wife."

The couple's good news comes after Jess admitted feeling "robbed" as a bride trying to plan her wedding during the Covid pandemic.

 “Being a Covid bride is just crap. We have every hope it might happen in June but we just have to wait and hear what the announcements are," she told The Sun.

“Knowing the fate of your wedding two months before it’s supposed to take place in another country with a lot of guests is about as bad as it can get as a bride.

"It’s totally ruined the whole experience for us.

“I feel robbed. I probably won’t get excited until I’m literally walking down the aisle. By then, I just don’t even think I’m going to care any more.”

In January, her parents Carol, 62, and dad Mark senior, 64, both got Covid-19, and earlier this month her uncle Edward, who Jess said was like a second dad, lost his life to the virus.

Jess says it has been a very stressful few months but she is counting her blessings and feels lucky to have mum Carol by her side.

She shared: "I’ve got a wonderful family, I’ve got my health and I’ve got a lovely fiancé. My mum’s better than me under pressure.

"She keeps a brave face on for me then when she’s off the phone she probably cries."
