TOWIE has returned to our screens – hurrah – and with this comes new faces who we can’t wait to get to know.

But there are also a whole host of TOWIE stars who’ve been on the show for quite some time who we want to find out more about, and we’re turning to Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell.

The reality star first joined TOWIE back in 2015, as Lydia Bright’s best pal.

Known as Gatsby, the 30 year old has already entered retirement – say what? And it has us questioning what he does when he’s not popping up on our screens on the hit ITVBe show.

What does TOWIE star Gatsby do for a living?

The cheeky chap, who has become a staple part of the show, has the name ‘Gatsby’ for a reason.

Yes, if you think it eludes to the fact that he lives a luxurious lifestyle then you’re correct as the Essex native was once a professional footballer.

He once revealed to Metro: “I used to play football for West Ham United, when I was younger, but I lost interest and gave footie up to go out partying.

“I wish I’d carried on though – I could be a top player now!”

As well as football, Gatsby is partial to rapping and has ‘music’ written in his Instagram bio.

Yet it’s business where Gatsby’s talents mainly lie and, like his friend Tommy Mallett, it seems the star has his fingers in a few pies.

According to The Sun in 2018, Gatsby is “reportedly worth millions.”

They said: “The reality star made his money as a real estate broker and he’s been a business partner for the London Dermatology Centre for the last six years.”

Companies House listed Gatsby as the director of a company named ‘Stay Famous Limited’ in 2019, but this has since been dissolved.

As a result of all of this, Metro have reported that the 30 year old is worth an estimated £2 million, in 2019.

The star has a private Instagram account which boasts half a million followers and, not too long ago, he enjoyed some retail therapy which included swinging by Gucci.
