Love Island star Wes Nelson splashed to cash on a serious shopping spree to celebrate his ongoing success after he became a millionaire at the age of 21.
The musician, now 23, treated himself to a set of new wheels to mark the occasion after making a series of “wise investments” after finding fame on reality TV.
The reality star, who recently appeared to take a swipe at ex's Megan Barton Hanson and Arabella Chi when he opened up about his ideal girlfriend, took to Instagram to share his extravagant purchase as he sat on top of his royal blue Mercedes SUV from the exclusive G63 range retailing at around £161,000.
He captioned the post: “Nah I don’t even know what to say … my new G63 AMG! My new G63! Big shout out to @dmodrrjay and the @gve.london fam! You really made this happen!”
His celebrity pals were quick to share their congratulations with the star, including Love Island pals Dr Alex George and Georgia Steel.
Medical professional Alex George commented: “Very nice indeed sir” while Georgia chimed in: “Sickkkkk” followed by two applause emojis.
TOWIE star Chloe Ferry agreed, adding: “Best cars” followed by a fire emoji followed by former Love Island star Josh Denzel, who wrote: “This guys gone CLEARRRRRRR.”

Wes revealed that after investing his money wisely he “doesn’t have to work again” by investing in other projects including several properties.
In an interview with The Sun last year, Wes, who recently sparked romance rumours with Maya Jama, said: “I was a millionaire by the age of 21.
"And that’s not being a show off or anything, but it’s wise investments and understanding this life doesn’t last forever.
“I’ve been lucky to have so many shows under my belt, and I’m super grateful for that.
“I have a passive income and generational wealth, so my children, whenever they come about, they’re not going to have to work again. I don’t have to work again.”
However, his blonde bombshell ex, Megan, 26, has since opened up about the real reason she split with Wes after she claimed he put money and his career over their relationship.
Speaking on the Independent’s Millennial Love podcast, the starlet said: “I don’t have a bad word to say about him but that relationship broke down ultimately because of our priorities.
“So he was very career-driven, taking every job under the sun and rightly so.
“But because I’d already experienced having money fairly easy with the stripping, I was more dedicated and focused on the relationship, so it’s super hard to get that balance just right and work together.”
