Katie Price, Range Rover SE Vogue

Despite having to give up her statement car a couple of years ago, Katie Price will always be associated with her Barbie Pink Range Rover SE Vogue. The colour might not have been to everyone’s taste, but the Vogue is a popular choice among reality stars: Love Island’s Molly-Mae drives a silver model while The Only Way Is Essex’s Sam Faiers owns one in black. The car offers luxury, style, and performance, reaching 0-60mph in 7.1 seconds and offering a max speed of 130mph. Inside, seating can be heated or cooled depending on the weather, there’s a state-of-the-art sound system, and handy driver assist features include a rear camera.

Tommy Fury, BMW i8

Molly-Mae’s Love Island cast mate and boyfriend, Tommy Fury, recently celebrated passing his driving test by investing in a sleek BMW i8. Former X Factor star Olly Murs has one too – and it’s easy to why this car would be top of both their wish lists. Combining an electric motor with a turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, the i8 can go from 0-62mph in just 4.4 seconds, while its distinctive design is sure to turn heads at any speed. Hinged doors that move forwards and upwards add a sporty edge to the exterior while the interior comes equipped wit climate control, cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring, and an 8.8-inch display screen.

Charlotte Crosby, Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible

Charlotte Crosby might have made her name by causing chaos on Geordie Shore, but her choice of car is surprisingly refined. Boasting an eye-catching monochrome colour-scheme, her Bentley Continental convertible is luxurious and powerful. With its V8 engine, sleek design, and innovative technology, it’s a great car year-round, but with the top down in the sunshine, you can’t ask for a more exhilarating drive! A range of driver assist technologies add to the experience; active all-wheel drive, an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, and adaptive cruise control all come as standard.

Nadiya Hussein, Nissan Juke

The Great British Bake Off winner, Nadiya Hussein, had a sports car at the top of her wish list after taking the top spot in the beloved baking show but, at the time, she drove a much more modest Nissan Juke. A small SUV with a bold design, the Juke is a great family car. It offers a spacious cabin and surprisingly generous boot given its compact exterior. The car also comes equipped with a range of safety features including blind spot warning, lane keep assist, and emergency braking. And its innovative dashboard display can even give you tips on becoming a more efficient driver so you can save on your fuel costs!

Joey Essex, Lamborghini Aventador

The one car that’s made it onto both our footballers’ and pop stars’ favourite car lists, the Lamborghini Aventador is beloved by reality stars too. TOWIE’s Joey Essex recently sold his all-white version but that was because its colour scheme and personalised ‘ESS3X’ number plate were attracting too much attention. The Aventador is a fantastic sports car nonetheless, offering a powerful V12 engine, trademark scissor doors, and handy tech features like Apple CarPlay.

Spencer Matthews, Aston Martin DB11

It’s not surprising that Made in Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews has expensive taste; his Aston Martin DB11 will have set him back around £150,000 after all. It’s an impressive buy though, offering a top speed of 192mph and achieving 0-62mph in just four seconds. Its design is sleek, refined, and sculptural with the iconic Aston Martin grille a key feature. Inside, drivers can enjoy a full-colour 12-inch display as well as an 8-inch media screen, alongside auto park assist, and a premium SatNav and audio system.
