Gemma Collins surprised Jess Wright with Jimmy Choo wedding shoes as she couldn’t attend big day
Jess Wright has revealed her former TOWIE co-star and close friend Gemma Collins gifted her the Jimmy Choo shoes she wore to walk down the aisle with William Lee-Kemp.
In OK!’s exclusive first-look clip from Jess’ ITVBe reality show Jess Wright: The Wedding, which airs tonight (Tuesday 2 November), the 36-year-old explains the story behind Gemma’s kind gesture.
Jess tells the cameras: “Gemma Collins sent me something on Instagram, a pair of shoes, and she went, ‘You need these for your wedding day!’”
She continued: “I went, ‘that’s the pair that I’m literally going to buy. Then about three days later they turned up at my door. I was like, ‘you’re just the sweetest!’”
Opening the box to give viewers a glimpse of the stunning cream strappy shoe sitting inside, Jess added: “They are so pretty.”
However, the star, who sprung to fame on TOWIE alongside Gemma, admitted that it only made her more upset that Gemma was unable to attend her big day to William in sunny Majorca.
Jess, who tied the knot with William in September, explained: “It’s absolutely gutting now that she can’t even come. They’re just beautiful.”
However, Gemma, known as “the GC” wasn’t the only special person in Jess’ life that couldn’t make the celebrations in Spain.
The star previously revealed that the pandemic played havoc with organising, which meant some were no longer able to attend.
Speaking about the stresses of planning and having to postpone the wedding, Jess explained: “It was manic, we didn’t even know if it was happening a month before it went ahead.”
She continued: “It was a year of ups and downs. A lot of procrastinating. We feel so grateful we got there.”
“There were a few of our friends who couldn’t come, my maid of honour had just had a baby so couldn’t get there, and some of the others because of restrictions.”
But newlyweds Jess and William made sure they enjoyed every moment surrounded by their nearest and dearest who could be there, including Jess’ brother Mark Wright and her sister-in-law Michelle Keegan, who was a bridesmaid.
Opening up about their nuptials, the blushing bride said: “We both love Mallorca. We’ve both grown up going there. It just made sense.”
“My best friend and my brother got married there. It’s close to our hearts. We wanted somewhere in the sunshine that also allowed us a whole week away with our families and friends.”
