SHE looks as ‘reem’ in real life as she does on television.
The Only Way is Essex’s Jess Wright is at West Quay tonight meeting her adoring fans.
Crowds gathered around a pop up shop run by Jess throughout the day, featuring some of her own designs.
And Jess was accompanied by mum Carol, Nana Pat and boyfriend Ricky Rayment, also cast members on the hit show.
It was not the model/fashion designer’s first time in the city though and she revealed she was delighted to be back.
Jess said: “I’ve been here a couple of times for work before but not for the whole day. It’s been amazing and so nice to speak to so many lovely people. I’ve met loads of fans who have said the nicest things and I’m really pleased with how the shop has been selling.

“I like going out and meeting my fans. Most of the time we are in Essex so it’s nice to get out to a new place and meet a new fanbase. West Quay is great too as it has some of my favourite shops like River Island and New Look, so I’d definitely come back to Southampton.”
More than 2,000 teenagers are in the shopping centre tonight after signing up to a special discount event.
Jess and the shop will return to West Quay tomorrow.
