Jess Wright admits husband William ‘hated every second’ of filming wedding show
Jess Wright will appear in a one off special on ITVBe tonight that documents her wedding day to William Lee-Kemp.
The former The Only Way is Essex star tied the knot with her now husband, Will, in a picturesque ceremony in Mallorca, Spain in September.
Jess Wright: The Wedding Chronicles captures the whole run up to the wedding, as well as their special day on camera.
While the 36 year old is used to her life being filmed for reality television, she admitted that her husband, 34, “hated every second” of being filmed.
Appearing on Loose Women this morning, Ruth Langsford quizzed Jess about her new ITVBe show. She asked: "You're used to being on the TV, and used to cameras following you and William's not, how did he feel about that?"
Jess replied: “Absolutely hated every second of it, if I'm honest.”
“He works with cars, he’s a businessman and he doesn’t even like having his picture taken, so when I said to him, ‘Listen, they’re really interested in filming the wedding and it could be a really lovely home video for us’ – it took a lot of convincing."
In spite of being a novice in front of the camera, Jess gushed that he was a “natural.”
“But he’s an absolute natural,” she continued. “He’s really quite a funny guy as well, he's really witty, so he was great on camera.
“I hope everyone just gives him some slack and isn’t too hard on him or me because he’s absolutely dreading it. He’s going to have to have some stiff drinks to watch it tonight.”
The ITVBe show follows Jess and Will in the lead up to their wedding, as well as re-introduces Jess' family including her brother Mark, who also found fame on TOWIE.
In the 90 minute special, Jess also reveals that it was her brother Mark Wright that set her up with hubby, Will.
“He honestly reminds us every other day,” she laughed, “We’d both built quite nice lives for ourselves individually, but there was just something missing which was that special someone to share that with and I think he saw that.
“Will is a lovely kind gentleman – he’s just a good guy, and I think my brother had wanted that for me for so long.”
The couple have also started planning for a family and Jess decided to freeze her eggs due to a family history of early menopause.
“I think we’re going to have to because I’m 36 and William’s nearly 39, so we’re going to have to start trying soon,” Jess revealed in the special.
“We did freeze our embryos last year because we were really worried about early menopause because my mum went through a really early menopause. So we went through that process just before the wedding.”
