From Tilbury to Gogglebox – facts about Essex native Anne-Marie

While she may have been overshadowed by the slightly more famous face sitting next to her on the Gogglebox sofa, many viewers will wonder where they recognise popstar (and Essex native) Anne-Marie.

Born in Tilbury, Anne-Marie (full name Anne-Marie Rose Nicholson) joined forces with The Voice co-star Tom Jones, to raise money for charity on the latest episode of Celebrity Gogglebox.

Here’s everything you need to know about Anne-Marie…

Who is Anne-Marie and how old is she?

Anne-Marie has become one of the fastest rising stars on the UK pop scene over the last few years.

The pink-haired popstar, age 30, has been nominated for a total of eight BRIT awards, since making her debut in 2016.

She first made her mark as a frequent collaborator, working with drum and bass act Rudimental, and Clean Bandit and Pitbull on the chart-topping ‘Rockabye’ (which spent nine consecutive weeks at number one).

She’s also released her own singles, including the UK Top 10 hits ‘Ciao Adios’ and ‘Don’t Play.’

This year, Anne-Marie joined the cast of The Voice UK as a vocal coach, where she met Gogglebox co-star Tom Jones, alongside other celebs like Olly Murs and Will.i.am.

She has a new album, Therapy, which will be released in July 2021.

She also has a collaboration with Little Mix in the works, which has sadly been put on hold after a crew member tested positive for COVID.

What is Anne-Marie’s net worth?

Anne-Marie is estimated to be worth a tidy £5.4 million, making her fortune through consecutive hit singles and some shrewd property investments.

Who is Anne-Marie dating?

Anne-Marie is understandably guarded about her personal life.

She was previously romantically linked to One Direction star Niall Horan, who she collaborated with on ‘Our Song’ — but it looks like their relationship is strictly limited to golf, at the moment.

She has previously stated that she’s romantically interested in both men and women, but that she “has never felt the need to tell anyone I’m bisexual — I just feel like I’m attracted to who I like.”
