Jess Wright reveals her family are in talks to star in their own Kardashian-style reality show
Jess Wright has revealed her family are in advanced talks to star in a Kardashian-style reality show.
After years of speculation, ITV are set to give the green light to the project, which will centre around the former TOWIE star, 36, her younger sister Natalya, 21, brother Josh, 32, and parents Carol and Mark Senior.
And speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Jess told how her grandmother Irene is being lined up to appear as the family matriarch, taking on the mantle of her late Nanny Pat, the TOWIE icon.

Jess said: ‘There is interest now about doing a series following our family, on the back of the show about my wedding.
‘It’s been rumoured for years but now is the right time because my brother Josh is having a baby, and I might be starting to have my own family soon, so it just feels like the natural time to do it.
‘There are so many of us, so many characters and we’re used to being around the cameras as well. It’s second nature to us.’
Jess teased brother Mark and wife Michelle Keegan, both 34, could have cameos, but believes grandmother Irene could become the unlikely surprise star.

New faces: Speaking to MailOnline, Jess told how her grandmother Irene is being lined up to appear as the family matriarch, taking on the mantle of her late Nanny Pat, the TOWIE icon
She explained: ‘Our Nanny Irene is quite a character and her and Nanny Pat were best friends.
‘She will probably feature in it, and my granddad too, which will be brilliant.
‘Irene would be a bit of a reality TV newcomer; she was in TOWIE in very small doses but was a bit shy back then. Now she would do it.’
The Wrights appeared together in a new campaign for Debenhams.com, becoming their first ever-family brand ambassadors.
They dressed up for a festive shoot, alongside their two dogs Bella and Bubbles, to showcase the latest gifting, party wear and dog accessories.

Although Jess says her dad Mark ‘would rather have been down the pub watching football.’
Model Natalya has previously featured in fashion shoots alongside sister Jess, who married husband William Lee-Kemp in September.
And she’s now looking forward to having a bigger presence on reality TV, having appeared fleetingly on TOWIE as a youngster and starring in Jess’s one-off special about her wedding, which aired earlier this month on ITVBe.
She said: ‘It’s not normally my kind of thing, I’m quite shy when it comes to things like that. But I’m happy to give it a little go. I’m used to the cameras being around.’

‘I’m quite old for my age’: Model Natalya told MailOnline she grew up quickly after having older brothers and sisters to look up to, and claims she’s the ‘sensible one’ in the family
Jess says her relationship with her younger sister is incredibly strong, despite their 15-year age gap.
She explained: ‘We’re like best friends. When she was born, I thought our age gap would mean we might not be so close. But we’re literally so tight.’
And the youngest of the Wright sisters claims she’s the ‘sensible one.’
Natalya added: ‘I would say I’m quite old for my age as I’ve always grown up around older siblings and older cousins, so that’s how I’ve learned to grow up. We’ve gone out clubbing together and I’m the sensible one.’
Jess says the Wrights will all be heading to brother Josh’s house on Christmas Day.
The footballer, 32, who played alongside Mark at Crawley Town last season, announced this month himself and wife Hollie are expecting their first baby.
But it appears he’ll be putting his feet up when it comes to cooking.
Jess added: ‘That will be left up to us I think. The women will take over as usual.’
