Towie's Elliott Wright reopens restaurant just three months after it burnt down

Towie’s Elliott Wright is celebrating in a big way after reopening his restaurant Olivia’s after it burnt down just three months ago.

The star shared videos of the restaurant full of customers, with bottles of bubbly being served and music playing throughout the venue, which is located in Mijas Costa in Spain.

People could be seen waving their napkins in the air as they celebrated the restaurant’s reopening.

Fellow Towie star and Elliott’s cousin, Jess Wright, shared the love, penning on Instagram: ‘So immensely proud of my cousin @elliottwright_.

‘Against all the odds, he’s not only done it in a few months but made it even better. I cannot wait to come to @olivias_la_cala.’

Elliott added: ‘So many, many messages of support, just want to say I see them all, they have all helped through these testing times and just a big thank you to every message that I have received.’

Olivia’s was destroyed in a huge blaze in April this year, with Elliott saying at the time: ‘So I will get this out there as no doubt this news will spread fast… unfortunately it’s with regret that @olivias_la_cala had a fire in the early hours of this morning… it’s too soon to say why, all that matters is it has. 

‘More importantly in life you get tested.. it’s been a very testing couple of years.. especially recently.. but if you know me, you know I will rise from this.. I will rebuild it big and better then before.. 

‘I will never be beaten.’ 

The TV star has also had a difficult year, after his father, Eddie Wright, died following a battle with Covid-19.

Elliott and his wife Sadie also recently revealed that they had suffered a miscarriage.

‘It is with the heaviest of hearts that we tell you the devastating news that we had a miscarriage and lost our baby boy at 5 months on Wednesday,’ he shared in a statement.

‘Our hearts are broken into a million pieces and our whole world and dreams have been ripped apart. We was so lucky to have had time to spend with our baby after the tragic birth and we take comfort that our darling boy is now up in heaven with Granddad Eddie (sic).

‘We would like to thank everyone who looked after us and our beautiful baby at St Thomas’s Hospital, especially our midwife Camella. Having you by our side helped us more than you could possibly know.

‘We really thank you for all your condolences at this terribly sad time but ask for privacy as a family while we grieve the loss of our beautiful baby boy’.
