Tommy Mallet was born in Islington and was scouted as a model aged 14, before moving to Essex when he was 15. He first hit our screens in 2014 in the BAFTA-award winning reality show ‘The Only Way is Essex’ and quickly after joining the show, he sparked up a passionate relationship with co-star and now fiancé, Georgia Kousoulou. His close bond with the boys also meant he featured heavily when joining the cast. Tommy was one of the shows core cast members and fan favourites.
Outside of TOWIE Tommy has gone onto launch his own footwear brand Mallet footwear. Established in 2015 the brand has gone from strength to strength to be one of the most successful footwear brands in the UK and is featured in over 500 UK stores including Choice, Flannels, Selfridges, London and most recently American retailers Fred Segal and Saks Fifth Avenue.
At only 28 years old Tommy was named 2021’s Forbes 30 under 30 within the Retail and Commerce sector and plans to launch in Canada this year. Mallet footwear also made its debut at Paris Fashion Week in 2019 and showcased at London Fashion Week also.
2021 continued to be a busy year for Tommy with the arrival of his and Georgia’s son, Brody. In late summer, the couple finished filming their own ITV show ‘Georgia & Tommy: Baby Steps following their journey pre baby and after. The show was ITVBE’s biggest new commission last year and Georgia and Tommy are currently filming for series 2.
Tommy has also appeared on a number of well-known TV shows outside of TOWIE such as Celebrity Juice, Celebrity Ghost-Hunt and Your Face or Mine.
