Wes Nelson has given away his £145,000 Mercedes after realising he’s no longer interested in material things.

The former Love Islander became a millionaire at the age of 21 and, now 23, has decided flashy possessions are ’empty.’

He showed off his expensive new wheels seven months ago after amassing a fortune thanks to his two platinum-selling singles and stints on various reality shows.

As well as the ITV2 dating show, Wes appeared on The X Factor: Celebrity, Dancing on Ice and has reportedly invested in property and cryptocurrency.

However, speaking on The Private Parts podcast, Wes said he no longer drives and wasn’t fussed about giving away his car.

He now gets more fulfilment from helping others and showing kindness, so his dad and brother are now the proud owners of his fancy motor.

‘My dad and my brother have my car now. I’ve realised that as soon as you get one thing you want the next thing anyway. It’s actually so dead,’ he admitted.

‘This is the first time I’ve not drove in my life and I love driving. Because I know what I’ll be like, I’ll want to get a new one and I’ll want to get this.’

He added: ‘The more you have, the more money you probably make. They come hand in hand, but at the same time it sucks. You don’t want more, it just comes with doing more.’

The musician also opened up about his anxiety since he started making a lot of money.

‘I think being around nice things and stuff you just realise how empty they are,’ he continued.

His change in attitudes came after he lost a really expensive item, but felt like he ‘hadn’t really lost anything.’

Wes added that ‘it just doesn’t mean anything’ to him anymore to have lost of pricey possessions, as he gets ‘so much more pleasure’ from ‘helping people and going out doing good things.’

However, he still has a steady stream of income, after previously telling The Sun that he has a ‘passive income and generational wealth,’ which will ensure his future children will ‘not have to work again’ and neither will he.
