The Only Way Is Essex star James ‘Diags’ Bennewith has been charming us all since he burst onto our screens in 2012.

The loveable reality star, known for his hilarious wit, is always the first one enjoying a lavish Essex party, or sipping cocktails on a sun-soaked holiday.

But when the cameras stop rolling, what does the 29 year old do for a living?

Well, when Diags is not starring on the hit ITVbe show he is helping out with the family plumbing business, Plumb Point Essex.

From bathrooms to boilers, the star has got you sorted.

According to their website the company has over 30 year industry experience.

Plumbing is a decent money-spinner, with the average wage being £31,787, but this must be significantly more if you own the business.

But aside from his professional life, Diags’ romantic life seems to be going rather well.

The star has moved on from his past relationship with Fran Parman, who he was dating for two years before they split back in 2018.

And now Diags is loved up and happy with another brunette beauty, Sophie Ernoult.

Sophie and Diags met while volunteering in Uganda for The Abode Project.

This is a charity that aims to provide long term opportunities, including education, for vulnerable children in east African countries.

It is funded by the proceeds of music events in both the UK and Ibiza.


Back in August Sophie took to her Instagram feed to share a sweet clip of herself posing for a mirror selfie with 29-year-old Diags.

She captioned it: "We have a good time," followed by a white heart emoji.
