A former Windsor resident has found fame on a new reality television programme which documents the lives of expats in sunny Marbella.
Felicity Faye-Kidd, who moved to the south of Spain three years ago, is a star of the show Life on Marbs on ITVBe.
The 29-year-old’s glamorous life on the screen is very different from the one-bedroom council flat in Sawyer’s Close she left behind in Windsor where she lived with son Addison, six.
She was cabin crew for Virgin Atlantic for more than eight years and settled in Gibraltar where she lived with her ex-boyfriend, who showed her the millionaire lifestyle.
After the relationship ended, Felicity said the start of filming for Life on Marbs was something to look forward to.
The experience of being on the show has meant she can grow her business, the Marbella Dress Company, which she runs by herself.
The fourth episode of the 12-part series aired on Wednesday and it is full of drama, which Felicity said she is not used to.
She said: “I’m from Windsor, I’m not from Essex. It’s not something I ever really expected I’d end up doing.
“With the show there are a lot of people that are very much all about the money.
“I think that I bring a different type of perspective to the show.
“I went from a council flat to living a millionaire lifestyle then going back to fending for myself.
“I hope I can show people, especially kids, that it’s good to be working hard and providing for your family.
“I want to be a career made woman and not rely on someone else.”
Felicity said she ‘loves’ her new life in Spain but returns to Windsor regularly to see her family and friends.
