When is TOWIE back on ITVBe? When does series 24 start? Which stars are in the cast? All the details as The Only Way Is Essex CONFIRMED for return
TOWIE has been confirmed to return to ITVBe for series 24.
The Only Way Is Essex aired its 23rd season earlier this year, featuring plenty of drama as Dan Edgar and Amber Turner faced troubles in their relationship and Courtney Green was rocked by the news of ex Myles Barnett’s new girlfriend. Despite the series only recently ending, fans are already full of questions about when another instalment will be shown. So when will TOWIE be back on ITVBe? And which stars will be returning to screens?
An official start date has yet to be confirmed, however a spokesperson for TOWIE has exclusively confirmed to OK! online that the series is likely to debut in March 2019. The full cast will be revealed nearer the time of filming but it’s thought all the regulars, including newbie Sam Mucklow, will be back for TOWIE series 24.
Chloe Sims, Dan Edgar, Pete Wicks, Courtney Green, Chloe Meadows, Tommy Mallet, Myles Barnett and Amber Turner are all expected to return, thought it’s unclear whether Myles’ new girlfriend Kady McDermott will also be back after she joined last season.
Yazmin Oukhellou and James Lock will be making their TOWIE comeback, after taking some time away from the show to work on their relationship. James Argent has teased that he will also be returning, after he was absent from the latest season due to his return to rehab.
Speaking to the Loose Women panellists earlier this year, Arg said: “So I had a bit of a break from TOWIE, I wasn’t in the last series. I had a bit of a difficult time over the summer and then the series was coming up and I didn’t really feel ready to film.
“Obviously I am the only original TOWIE cast member remaining and obviously I’ve been there since day one. Lucky for me — and I appreciate it — all the love and support from ITV and Lime Pictures. What I’m told is the door is always open for me. “So next year, there’s a good possibility I’ll go back on to TOWIE.”
The TOWIE Christmas episodes have been a long-standing Christmas tradition but it was confirmed earlier this year that in 2018 there would be no festive special. Speaking to The Sun earlier this year, Chloe Sims explained: “There is no TOWIE Christmas special this year, which is sad.” A spokesperson from the ITV show then revealed: “The current series of TOWIE has been extended to 11 episodes and as a result there will be no Christmas special.”
