Elliot Wright rebuilds Marbella restaurant in just 12 weeks
The Only Way Is Essex star Elliott Wright has rebuilt his Marbella restaurant in just 12 weeks after it was devastated by a fire.
In April, the reality TV personality, 41, was heartbroken when his business Olivia’s La Cala on the Costa del Sol – named after his 11-year-old daughter – was targeted by an arsonist.
But now, he took to his Instagram Stories to show the rebuilt restaurant with fans.
His clips showed him walking through his fully-packed restaurant which had a live singer entertaining the patrons while they ate.
Customers could be seen enjoying the good weather while he waved at them.
He also shared cousin Jess Wright’s story, which showed the crowd at the restaurant.
She captioned the post: “So immensely proud of my cousin @elliottwright_. Against all the odds, he’s not only done it in a few months but made it even better. I cannot wait to come to @olivia_la_cala.”
In another story, he shared a clip of the space and wrote: “12 week complete rebuild is officially complete.”
The star also tagged where he got the furniture for the place.
It comes over a month after Elliott announced that he was using the renovation to unveil a new business venture within the property – a flame grill restaurant.
Announcing his big plans for when Olivia’s is back up and running previously, he shared a snap onto his Instagram page of a new logo and explained that his dreams of having a Turkish restaurant had been “pushed forward” in light of the fire and that he wanted something “born out of the ashes”.
The cousin of Mark Wright typed: “I’m so excited for this, for a few years I’ve been thinking of this new concept and sometimes in life things get pushed forward unintentionally.
“And very fitting to launch it off the back of what has happened, I said the relaunch would make the project so much better and to add a new restaurant based on the top floor of @olivias_la_cala with its amazing views, I can’t wait for you all to see it.

“And what better name then something born out of the ashes then phoenix.. in Turkish ANKA KUSU.. launching in a few weeks.. I look forward to seeing you all here @ankakusu_byolivias.”
The blaze hit Olivia’s restaurant on Spain’s Costa Del Sol at 5.30am on Monday April 26, just weeks after Elliott’s father died from Covid-19 at the age of 66.
In May, reports claimed that Spanish police were closing the net on the arsonists who torched Elliott’s restaurant after being handed CCTV footage of the night-time attack.
The dad-of-three branded the culprits ‘scumbags’ after being told the cost of rebuilding his dream will be nearly £1.5 million.
