It’s not long now till The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) is back on our screens and I honestly couldn’t be happier.
This show could be referred to as my guilty pleasure, but to be honest, I openly love it. I love the set up drama, I love all the fake-ery and most of all I love watching to see what Joey Essex will come out with next. The man has no boundaries, it’s great TV.
So, we’ve already lost Mark to the celebrity jungle and now Kirk had hot-footed it on over to Celebrity Big Brother, as Amy did too. And it’s been confirmed that we will also be losing two other characters/real people – Harry and Maria.
Maria has not really had a starring role in the show since she moved out of the house with Lauren Pope. She released a statement on her Twitter which says:
“I would like to be the first to announce… After a rollercoaster year and after meeting with producers today we have decided that my time on TOWIE has come to an end.
“I am happy to be leaving the show on a high after 3 series and feel I am embarking on a new chapter in my life with exciting projects both personal and professional.
“Thank you for all your support during my time on the show and I hope to continue to keep you all entertained throughout 2012!!”
Harry also took to Twitter to say his peace:
“Hiya! I really did not want you to all find out so soon but its out there, I am not in TOWIE anymore as I am moving onto different things.
“Thank you all for your support and keep following and checking out, and I will see you on all on tv again very soon. “
Hinting at the possibility that he may soon have another reality show to be on. Harry’s been on the show since the first series, but since Amy left at the end of Series 2 there hasn’t been many story lines for him to feature in, he was mainly with Gemma and the Twins – who I will be surprised if they make it into the next series.
There’s also rumours circulating that Sam Faiers may also be getting the chop, but I have to beg the producers NO! too much has changed already and it takes a while for the audience to warm up to people.
Apparently they’ve already started looking for new people to introduce and I can’t wait to see them.
Who else do you think should be given the chop?
