Jessica Wright: My book isn't too sexy

Jessica Wright wanted her book to be about love rather than just sex.

The multitalented TV star, who found fame on The Only Way Is Essex, also sings and is now launching her first novel, Sparkling Stilettos.

While there's a level of romance, the 29-year-old was careful not to let it veer into Fifty Shades territory.

"Yes I have [read Fifty Shades], but my book isn't as raunchy as I have a young fan base so wanted it to be more mediocre," she explained to British newspaper Metro.

"I love Jackie Collins and Marian Keyes, so wanted it [to be] about love."

Jessica drew on her own experiences for the plot and certainly has plenty of inspiration thanks to the dramatic storylines in TOWIE. The latest season ended with a bang last night, with everything coming to an explosive head during a carnival-themed bash.

Jessica also used her keen business sense and love of fashion to influence the glamorous protagonist.

"She is her own character but I wanted to incorporate parts of my personality in her, like she's ambitious and she's doing a shoe line, which I am too," the fashionista revealed.

"It's coming out next month. I have a passion for shoes. I have hundreds. My Valentinos are my favourite. They are pink, green and yellow and are stunning, but were about £600. My collection will be more affordable."

The 15th season of TOWIE has just finished and Jessica will definitely be back for the next, despite gossip claiming the opposite.

"I haven't got a clue where that story came from, but it's all lies," she told British magazine OK! "I have no plans to leave at the minute."
