HI, EL­LIOTT! YOU QUIT TOWIE IN 2015 – DO YOU EVER MISS IT?

I miss the peo­ple, but I don’t miss the agg, be­cause I hated it. I wouldn’t rule out a cameo, though. I was great friends with Gemma Collins and James Ar­gent for years be­fore

TOWIE, so it’s nice to see them when­ever they pop over to Spain [where El­liott lives].

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT LAU­REN GOODGER SAY­ING MARK WRIGHT [EL­LIOTT’S COUSIN] HAD HER RE­MOVED FROM SHEESH RESTAU­RANT?

I don’t know much about it. I’ve known Lau­ren since she was a kid, so I’ll al­ways say hello when I see her. I don’t know if there’s been a mis­read­ing be­tween the lines.

DO YOU EVER TALK TO YOUR EX, CHLOE SIMS?

No, I haven’t spo­ken to her in a while. I bumped into her at a TV awards show a few years ago. We’re on civil terms.

HOW’S ARG DO­ING SINCE LEAV­ING RE­HAB?

James is do­ing re­ally well. The first time he left re­hab, he wasn’t re­ally pre­pared to come out. This time, you can tell he’s dif­fer­ent. He’s a re­ally lovely per­son to spend time with now, whereas be­fore, he could be a bit prob­lem­atic.

LAST YEAR, YOU GOT EN­GAGED TO SADIE. CON­GRATS! WHEN’S THE WED­DING?

Thank you! It’s in Oc­to­ber.

YOU SAID RE­CENTLY THAT IT’S GO­ING TO BE A TRUE ‘WRIGHT WED­DING’ – WHAT DID YOU MEAN?

We’re known for our big fam­ily par­ties – they usu­ally go down well, and every­one gets up and gets in­volved. I don’t want a stuffy wed­ding. That’s why I built my restau­rant, Olivia’s, in Spain – be­cause we know how to throw a party!

WILL YOUR WED­DING OUTDO MARK WRIGHT AND MICHELLE KEE­GAN’S?

I don’t think you could ever say you’re look­ing to outdo some­one’s wed­ding! Mark and Michelle’s wed­ding was lovely, and I hope mine is, too.

HOW DID YOU CHOOSE BE­TWEEN GET­TING MAR­RIED IN ES­SEX OR MAR­BELLA?

Sadie and I have de­bated this a lot! I can’t tell you where the wed­ding will be yet, but you’ll find out on my new show. I wanted to do it at Olivia’s, but Sadie wanted to marry in England. We’ve got more than 250 peo­ple com­ing, which will be dif­fi­cult to ac­com­mo­date.

WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU AND SADIE DIS­AGREED ON?

Any­one who’s mar­ried knows you de­bate non-stop! We’ve also de­bated whether she’ll take my last name. We’re both tra­di­tional peo­ple, but she wants to keep her own name. We’ll see how that pans out!

HOW ARE YOUR CHIL­DREN, EL­LIOTT JR [NINE] AND OLIVIA [EIGHT], FEEL­ING ABOUT THE WED­DING?

They’re re­ally ex­cited! We’ve given them spe­cial roles. The kids love Sadie. If they didn’t ap­prove, it would def­i­nitely put me off get­ting mar­ried.

ARE YOU GO­ING TO TRY FOR KIDS TO­GETHER IN THE FU­TURE?

We’d def­i­nitely love to. If it were up to Sadie, we couldn’t have a big enough house – she wants six! I don’t mind, though – I love kids.
