Elliott and Sadie Wright reflect on ‘extremely tough year’ and how family got them through

Elliott Wright and his wife Sadie have reflected on “the hardest year” which saw the couple go through a miscarriage, along with dealing with the death of Elliott’s dad in March 2021 and the former TOWIE star’s restaurant being burnt down just weeks later.

The pair wed in 2017, and went on to welcome son Billy in January 2019. Elliott, 41, also shares two children from his previous marriage: Elliott Jr, 15, and daughter Olivia, 13.

In light of the difficult times they’ve faced of late, Elliott and Sadie spoke to OK! Online about how they’ve been doing, and credited their families their kids in particular for getting them through.

Sadie, 30, told us: “We’re okay. We take each day as it comes. Although we say we work hard and this and that, we’re a really good team – not just [Elliot and I], but us and our three kids and our mums and dads.

“If we have any problems, or I might wake up one day and I might be feeling sad, then we’ll come together as a family and we get on with it. Having Billy and having Elliott – Olivia’s obviously in the UK with her mum – but having the kids just make your day bright.”

Echoing similar sentiments, Elliott added: “[Kids] energise you. It was the hardest year and everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong.

"You know, God tests you sometimes and you’ve got to look at what you have around you to try and find hope and, like Sadie said, for me it’s when I come home from work and you’re battling against all the elements, it when you walk through the door and see Billy’s face and he says ‘Daddy!’ straight away you think that everything you’re doing is worth it.

“As long as you stick together as a family and fight together, you can get through the tough times.”

Elliott continued: “We had an extremely tough year, but there’s many people that’s the same as us and you have to look at it as one of those times and chapters in your life that you have to go through. If you keep plugging away, eventually you’ll come out the other side.”

Of late, Elliott has been busy opening his new restaurant, named Eduardos La Plaza after his late father Edward, which boasts a main restaurant area, with two vibrant bars, and top tier live entertainment.

In light of their months of hard graft, Elliott admitted he’s looking forward to some well-deserved R&R with his wife and family, and that they’re hoping to jet off to Barbados in December.

“When we go into this winter, it will be a time that Sadie and I can take a little step back a bit and try to enjoy our time off,” he said. “While everyone enjoys themselves in the summer, our time’s in the winter.”

Discussing their upcoming break, Elliott added: “We’re hoping that we’re going to come out of it and go: ‘Wow, the last three years have been horrendous, but finally we can take a step back and reflect’.”
