Who is Harry Derbridge?

Harry is a 26-year-old reality TV personality on TOWIE.

He is also a make-up artist who is the co-founder and CEO of beauty brand Celebrity Brushes, which are cruelty and vegan free.

The lover of “funky clothes” – as written in his Instagram bio – co-owns the business with his current fiance.

Harry also bought a dog called Zeus with his partner earlier this year!

Who is Harry Derbridge’s ex-boyfriend?

  • Rhys Alan Smith

Harry dated Rhys back in 2013, but it is not definite whether this is the last person he was in a relationship with before Bobby.

However, it is likely because Bobby and Harry dated in 2014, a year later.

Former TOWIE star Gemma Collins had suggested to Bobby that Harry may have met up with his ex boyfriend during a previous holiday to Tenerife.

Technically speaking, Bobby Norris is Harry’s most recent ex boyfriend.

Bobby reportedly broke up with Harry in Marbella, after he revealed that he had cheated on him by sleeping with his ex-boyfriend.

But during Sunday’s episode, Harry said he was texting his ex, but that he never “physically went and slept with him behind Bobby’s back”.
