Ex-TOWIE star Elliott Wright has admitted he's not sure whether he'll give his solo reality show Playa In Marbella a second outing, joking: "It all depends how much they pay me!"

The Essex star told The Sun that while ITVBe are eager to get the cameras rolling on another series of the Spanish-based fly-on-the-wall show, he's still undecided as filming the first one was "very hard".

It can seem like the life of a reality star is a super glam one, but Elliott's insisted that's not the case for him and it was blooming hard work launching brand new restaurant, Olivia's, while giving the cameras access to all areas of his life.

He admitted: "I'm not going to lie, it was very hard. You're leaving the restaurant at 2am and coming home and 7am they are knocking on the door to film you again. Sometimes you feel like telling them to sod off but you have a job to do and you have to let them in.

"I'm happy the show was a success, that's the main thing for me. I think people appreciated the in-depth nature. It all depends how much they will pay me."

Elliott Wright: Playa In Marbella, Wed 20 Jul


We met the whole staff at Olivia's in the show.

Playa In Marbella followed Elliott as he opened the doors of his new Spanish eatery, and introduced viewers to his staff, including fiancee Sadie Stuart. As well as revealing the professional side of his life in Spain, it also took us behind closed doors, focusing on his personal life, including an on-camera proposal to Sadie.

Speaking to Reveal back in July, Elliott said: "You see me as a dad, you see me as a businessman and a boss, you see my mum and dad, and you see me in a proper relationship. You see the real me, I suppose."

"On TOWIE you only saw a small snippet of me really and whatever storyline I'm in, whereas this show, it's shot like a documentary so you see all aspects of me. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Everyone is going to have their own judgements on it, but I'm serious about what I do. You can't go and spend what I've spent on Olivia's if you weren't serious."
