KATE Wright has become the new face of Very – her first job in two years since leaving Towie.
The Sun Online can exclusively reveal the 27-year-old former reality star is collaborating with the online fashion retailer, her first big gig since quitting the ITVBe show in 2017.
A source close to the star – who is engaged to former footballer Rio Ferdinand – said: “Kate has signed a huge six figure contract with Very.
“She’s absolutely thrilled to land the modelling job and establish a new career.”
Kate hinted at her new job on Instagram yesterday, posting a picture of herself wearing a low cut sundress.
Grinning off to the side of the camera, Kate held a bowl of strawberries as she sat on a chair on a beach.
She captioned the image: “Fun day shooting something very exciting yesterday… coming soon.”
Kate follows in the footsteps of former Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan, who has created a number of collections for Very.
The beauty quit Towie in April 2017 after originally joining in 2015, with most of her time on the show spent documenting her on-off relationship with Dan Edgar.
The couple split for good in 2016 and Kate was linked to Rio, 40, later that year.
After keeping their romance private, they eventually went public in 2017 and Rio proposed to Kate in November last year during a romantic trip to Abu Dhabi.
Meanwhile fans will have to wait and see what Kate actually models as part of her new deal, but swimwear could be a likely bet.
The star regularly posts stunning snaps of her incredible bikini body on social media, with Rio often posting cheeky comments underneath.
