At the age of 14, her parents split up after her dad’s businesses went bankrupt. Seeing her mum eking out a living from state benefits to provide for Essex and her three brothers—while re-acquiring job skills as she had always been a homemaker, Essex vowed never to end up like that and has kept up a job ever since.
Deciding to marry a millionaire, Essex soon left Epsom for Chelsea, London and began eyeing six-figure relationships. With a job in marketing to support her, Essex frequented Chelsea’s happening hotspots in her quest for ‘her millionaire’; one who would appreciate and share her leaning towards luxury.
Her dating formula got Essex on several TV shows, including This Morning (2014). In 2014, she made her reality TV debut on Travel Channel’s RV Rampage, which takes the participants through scenic New Zealand for five weeks, while they tackle adrenalin-filled challenges.
After a stint at Prior and Partners as Global Communications Director, Essex partnered Eden Blackman to launch the Celebrity Dating Agency.
Both soon appeared on TV as date wranglers or love gurus in the first series of E4’s reality show Celebs Go Dating (begun on August 29, 2016). Essex’s charismatic presence, dating advice and keen wit on the show boosted her fame as a ‘love coach’. The popular show’s second season began on February 13, 2017. Stars appearing in this series include Stephanie Pratt, Joey Essex, Ferne McCann and Charlotte Crosby.
Her accumulated net worth is mostly due to a massive designer shoe collection worth £10,000 that includes brands, such as Louboutin, Burberry, Chanel and Jimmy Choo, gifted by her dates. She has also been gifted jewellery, designer dresses and handbags, an iPad apart from being flown on a jet to holidays in Rome, Paris, New York and the Caribbean by her dates.
The Chelsea entrepreneur was gifted the title “Lady” by her friend at Christmas 2013—a title that is prominent even on her bank card and helps her with flight upgrades and reservations at top restaurants.
Essex who has been featured in tabloids and magazines, such as The Sun, Daily Mail, Closer and Heat, claims to have dated over a 100 millionaires and believes that teaching women the art of dating a rich man is good business.
