The Essex lass embraced the glorious weather and threw a garden party.

Former TOWIE beauty Kate Wright celebrated with close friends and family as she turned 27 at the weekend.

Kate, who is in a long-term relationship with ex-professional footballer Rio Ferdinand, posted a series of pictures from her big day on her Instagram, including a sweet mother-daughter snap.

Kate's beau Rio also showed face for her celebration, and the two looked the picture-perfect couple in matching black and white outfits, with Kate in a flattering polkadot dress that accentuated her trim figure.

Rio posted the image on his Instagram with the caption: "Good day for this ones birthday...catching me up...stunning!"

Kate and Rio have been dating for over a year after they were reportedly introduced to one another by a mutual friend whilst holidaying in Dubai.

Kate closed the door on her reality career as things between the two became more serious, vowing to be a good mother to Rio's children after the footballer sadly lost his wife Rebecca to breast cancer in 2015.

Rebecca was survived by Rio and their three children, Tia, Tate and Lorenz.
