Jessica Wright: Celebrity First Dates was the most nerve-wracking thing I've ever done

Jessica Wright felt 'Celebrity First Dates' was the "most nerve-wracking thing".

The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star - who quit the ITVBe series after five years on the hit show - has admitted her appearance on the dating programme was her "worst nightmare" because she "hates" going on romantic dates.

Speaking to OK! Online about the experience on the Channel 4 show, the brunette beauty said: "It was probably the most nerve-wracking thing I've ever done.

"I hate dates anyway but a blind date and on television - it's like my worst nightmare!"

However, the 30-year-old beauty has been romantically linked to former 'Celebrity Big Brother' hunk James Hill of late but has revealed she has never indulged in a sneaky smooch with the former 'The Apprentice' contestant.

Speaking about her blossoming romance with the 29-year-old entrepreneur, she said: "I haven't snogged him, I haven't even kissed him on the lips!"

Meanwhile, the television personality insists her younger brother Mark Wright, 29, who is married to former 'Coronation Street' actress Michelle Keegan - who are allegedly experiencing a difficult patch in their marriage - has defended the couple, and insists the pair are actually "so in love" and are the ideal match for one another.

Speaking about speculation Mark and Michelle are going through a difficult patch, Jess said: "It's awful for them but they have to rise above it and they do. I feel like constantly having to defend their relationship, even though they don't because they don't give a s**t! But they feel like they might have to reassure everyone. They're perfect together, they're so in love and they're so happy."
