Thanks to their TOWIEorigins, the Wright family are household names in their own right now. You’ve got former reality star turned radio DJ (and Michelle Keegan’s husband) Mark Wright, TOWIE star Jessica Wright, footballer Josh Wright and parents Carol and Mark Snr.

Contender for the most famous and current Essex family? We think so.


However, it’s the youngest of the clan, Natalya Wright, who is becoming a star in her own right. Despite not appearing on TOWIE herself, the fashion model and influencer has gained a legion of followers over the years and they have witnessed her grow up before their eyes.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Essex beauty…

Who is Natalya Wright?

Natalya is a lifestyle influencer, model and youngest member of the Wright family. She was only ten when her siblings made a name for themselves on TOWIE but fast forward a decade and Natalya has been dubbed the ‘Kendall Jenner’ of the Wright family.

Natalya has been making her mark in the fashion world since she was just 16 , having been head hunted by Select models – who look after David Gandy and Daisy Lowe – before parting ways and signing with Flourish management.

She’s most recently appeared in campaigns with ASOS and PrettyLittleThing.

How old is Natalya Wright?

Natalya Wright was born on the 7th August 2000, making her 20 years old.

Where is Natalya Wright from?

She was born in Buckhurst Hill in Essex and is very proud of her Essex roots.

Has Natalya Wright ever appeared on TOWIE?

Natalya was at secondary school when her brother Mark, sister Jess, mum Carol and cousin Elliot were filming scenes for TOWIE and has never appeared on the show, declaring in an interview with OK! magazine that "it’s just not for me".

She said, “I was only ten when they started! We didn’t really think much of it at the beginning and just found it funny but gradually the older girls at school would ask me for pictures of Mark. I’m really shy so I found it a bit embarrassing but no one was ever mean to me about it.

“I’ve seen what it’s like when people come up to Jess all the time asking for pictures and I wouldn’t want that. I wouldn’t mind being famous but not for appearing on reality TV, maybe for modelling or acting.”

However, she often attends events with Jess and Mark and is said to be super close with sister-in-law Michelle Keegan.
