Career[edit]

The Only Way Is Essex[edit]

Wright became noticed as one of the cast members in the British ITV2 reality TV series, The Only Way is Essex. Wright has appeared in the show throughout its ten-series run and has had public feuds with Lauren Goodger played out in the series. Her relationship with fellow cast member Ricky Rayment has been documented on the show.

Music[edit]

In December 2011 the show's current cast released a cover of the Wham! classic "Last Christmas", with their own unique version of the show's theme song "The Only Way Is Up" as the single's B-side, which was a cover of the Yazz version that is used as the theme for The Only Way Is Essex.[1]

In 2012, Wright signed a three-single deal with All Around the World. She later went to Marbella to film the music video for her debut single "Dance All Night", which was released on 16 September 2012 and peaked at number 36 on the UK Singles Chart.[2] Wright released her second single "Dominoes" featuring Mann on 17 February 2013. It failed to make the Top 100 of the official UK charts, but did chart on the UK Official Dance Charts at number 36. Wright then released a further track, "Come with Me", in June 2013, as part of Clubland 23.[3]
