Elliott Wright’s restaurant in Marbella has burned to the ground in a devastating fire.
The ‘Only Way Is Essex’ star has been left shocked after a blaze broke out at the Olivia’s La Cala restaurant at around 5:30am on Monday (26.04.21).
Elliott confirmed the news on Instagram after visiting the restaurant – which is located in La Cala de Mijas in Marbella on Spain’s Costa del Sol – as he admitted it is “too soon to say why” the building caught fire.
He wrote: “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 (sic)”
The news comes just over a month after Elliott’s father, Edward Wright, passed away following a battle with COVID-19.
The 41-year-old reality star – who is also the cousin of Mark Wright – took to social media at the time to say he was “simply devastated” by the news, and said he would be a “very happy soul” if he could be “half the man” his father was.
In part of a length post, he wrote: “It is with heart wrenching regret, that I have to post this post, my father Edward George Wright passed away peacefully with his family by his side on the 02.03.2021 after bravely fighting Covid for 8 weeks...
“The legacy and mark you leave is colossal, put simply if I could be half the man you were, when my time finally comes.. i would go a very happy soul. I love you dad, the hole you leave is monumental but the memories I will cherish for ever. I know you will be watching over me an the kids, I hope I continue to make you proud, Rest in peace dad. See you at the gates when the time comes. I Love you, with all my Heart (sic)”
