Jess Wright and family visit Southampton's West Quay shopping centre

Daily Echo: Jessica Wright of The Only Way is Essex Jessica Wright of The Only Way is Essex

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.

Daily Echo:

“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.

Journalism was the profession that uncovered the Watergate scandal and was the career choice for the likes of Paul Foot and John Pilger. Is this the sort of drivel to which it has descended.....

Sadly this is what constitutes news in todays world.
If you look on TV & see that they show the same thing over & over & over & then people watch it on +1, then +1+1 & blah, blah, blah................
It is nothing more than brain washing & social conditioning.
Then the 'DE' go & publish this sort of dross whilst having a million adverts on the website slowing my puter down to crawl it only goes to show the power of adverts & conditioning & yes I am guilty of it too!
God I am so shallow :D

This is a brilliant move by West Quay.

Like of hate the show - this brought in thousands of customers simply because they lied the show and this girl is on it. Not much more marketing needed really. Genius.

Clearly lots of people do, according to the viewing figures and the amount of shoppers who flocked here yesterday just for them.

If you disagree that it was a good move by West Quay bringing them in for the evening you obviously haven't got a clue about Target Marketing and your opinion on the matter holds no merit.

If these people are such idiots, then how come people still watch the show? I don't watch it, but I'm in a minority.
