TOWIE’s Little Chris’ life now as he rubs shoulders with TV stars

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Little Chris, whose real name is Chris Drake, has come a long way since leaving reality TV behind back in January 2014.

Little Chris was best known for being the best friend of fellow star Mario Falcone, who is now expecting his second child, on the show.

However, the two had a falling out in 2013 after Mario was accused of cheating on ex girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh.

It was rumoured at the time that Mario’s supposed best friend Little Chris “grassed him up” and the two began feuding.

Mario and Little Chris eventually ended their beef on-screen and it is thought that they're still pals some ten years on.

Since leaving the show, Chris has remained in the entertainment industry – but this time very much out of the spotlight.

He works as the Director of the Essex branch of talent agency Off Limits Entertainment Ltd, which manages stars including ex Love Islanders Gemma Owen and Chris Hughes, and boxer Amir Khan.

On his Linkedin, Chris highlights his extensive list of contacts within the entertainment industry which he says helps him find his clients “opportunities that fit their profile and ambition.”

Chris has been in the role since January 2016.

The former reality TV star is also now a happily married father of one.

Chris wed makeup artist Rostella Castallana in 2022 after four years of dating at a lavish ceremony attending by singer Tom Grennan and at least one of his clients, former Love Island contestant Georgia Steele.

In 2021, the pair welcomed a son named Leo.

At the time, she announced the news with a sweet post on her Instagram in which she said “he is perfect in every way and has changed our lives forever.”

A few months ago, Rostella shared a series of snaps to celebrate their little one reaching 18 months of age.

“Can’t believe my baby is 18 months old today… time really does fly,” she wrote underneath a snap of her son in an adorable grey waistcoat and black trousers.

The couple have more recently been enjoying a trip as a family of three to Dubai, where Rostella shared that she and her husband have been able to enjoy a rare date night out without their little one.
