TOWIE bosses on the hunt for new cast members to spice things up
The Only Way Is Essex producers are on the hunt for new talent to join the show… and they have to be “big on drama”.
Last week it was reported ITVBe bosses gave seven cast members the axe in a massive new revamp. Now, they are searching for some fresh faces to join the Essex gang and hopefully ruffle some feathers.
A source told The Sun: “Bosses are looking for interesting characters with dynamic lives.
“They need to look amazing and have incredible bodies and genuinely be integrated on the Essex scene. It is important that they already know some of the existing cast.
“TOWIE is big on drama – producers want to bring that essence of the show back and are keen to find characters that can deliver.
“They’re after people who aren’t afraid to speak their mind in the same way Amber Turner did last year.”
Chris Clark, Amber Dowding, Mike Hassini, Jack Rigden, Jordan Brook, Maddie Hooper and Ruby Lacey were those reported to have been given the chop from the reality series last week.
A TV insider previously informed The Sun’s Bizarre column: “TOWIE is like a revolving door and producers are always on the lookout for new faces that can keep the show fresh.
“Chris and Amber have left the series as a couple who’ve just moved into an apartment together – and often being in a happy relationship doesn’t work for the show.
“Mike is also loved-up with a girlfriend off camera and has no real storylines to bring to the show but will continue to focus on his fitness and personal training.”
The Only Way Is Essex will return soon on ITVBe.
