Speaking about her relationship with the businessman to Hello!, Jess said, "I am very lucky to have him and we have an amazing bond." Earlier this month, the TOWIE star opened up on freezing her eggs out of fear that she was going through an early menopause. She revealed that she made the decision to freeze her eggs after her mother Carol, 61, had a similar experience at the age of 41, including her late grandmother Pat who went through the same. Jess stated that she began sweating more during nights that led to a panic in herself about her plans for children in the future. 

Jess Wright was a regular on The Only Way Is Essex from 2010 to 2016. She and William began dating in January 2019 and had previously been in a relationship for a few months with Strictly Come Dancing professional Giovanni Pernice before they separated in April 2018. Jess had also been in a long-term relationship with her former Towie co-star Ricky Rayment, with the duo going their separate ways in 2014.
