Fans of The Only Way Is Essex will be delighted to hear that the show has been commissioned for three more series by ITV2, launching next month with a one-hour special.
“The cast is forever growing and forever changing,” said Derek McLean, head of non-scripted programming for Lime Pictures. “The sustained viewing figures are testament that TOWIE can keep on entertaining.”
It’s been an eventful few months for the cast, as Billie Faiers announced she was pregnant, while sister Sam recently starred in Celebrity Big Brother.
Gemma Collins announced her engagement to boyfriend Rami Hawesh at Christmas, but the couple sadly ended their relationship a few weeks later.
The show boasts A-list fans, with Oscar-nominated Jennifer Lawrence describing the show as “ridiculously amazing”, having discovered it through boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.
“Nice to hear Oscar actress winner Jennifer Lawrence is a @OnlyWayIsEssex fan,” tweeted James ‘Arg’ Argent. “Along with Kate Middleton haha! @itv2 #TeamTOWIE x”.
