KATE Wright is known for getting her fans hot under the collar with her busty selfies on Instagram.
The Only Way is Essex star is also reportedly dating former footballer Rio Ferdinand after the Sun exclusively revealed they’ve enjoyed a number of nights out together and he has been pictured leaving her home.
News of the romance shocked Kate’s ex-boyfriend and Towie co-star Dan Edgar, and Kate has banned any mention of Rio’s name from the new series of Towie.
Rio has also refused to discuss the relationship.
But who is Kate Wright? Here’s what we know.
Who is Kate Wright?
Kate was born on June 3 1991 in Essex.
Despite the surname, she is no relation to former Towie stars, siblings Mark and Jessica Wright.
She used to work as a business support manager for a big team in a bank organising corporate events before reality TV fame beckoned.
When did Kate join Towie?
Kate joined the cast of The Only Way is Essex in 2015 along with friend Mike Hassini.
Her first appearance on screen was during the Marbella special when she strode out in a bikini.
Having grown up in Essex, she was already good friends with cast members Chloe Lewis and Gemma Collins.
What does Kate do when she’s not on Towie?
Kate is something of a social media sensation and her Instagram account has more than 500,000 followers while her Twitter has more than 140,000 followers.
You can also find her in the gym five days a week after she admitted she has to work hard to maintain her incredible figure.
She also has a fashion range with online retailer Miss Pap and launched her ‘Party Picks’ collection Christmas 2016.
Who has she dated?
Kate met Dan Edgar on holiday in Ibiza in 2010 and they got together when they got back home to Essex.
But in 2014, fed up with working as an electrician, he took a role on Towie which led to him ending their relationship.
Kate joined in 2015 and had to see him date cast members Lauren Pope and Jessica Wright.
They then reconciled and while the show was off air, they went on holiday to Mexico, but decided to just be friends
Then, during the Christmas special of the show, Dan showed up at Danielle Armstrong’s shop and stood in front of the window to declare his love for Kate on some Brussel sprout-shaped cards.
However the on/off pair soon split again and co-star James Locke revealed Dan was "knocked for six" when Kate met Rio Ferdinand in Dubai and started dating him.
