New series arrives tonight

Here's a look at the The Only Way Is Essex cast for 2017, ahead of the new series continuing tonight.

Essex’s most famous residents are back on ITVBe for what will be their twentieth series.

They're ready to set tongues wagging and create gossip galore as the drama continues following on from the Christmas special last year.

The new mega 18 part series begins this Sunday night and will shed light on all the unanswered questions.

There have been a few changes for The Only Way Is Essex cast 2017 with some new and returning faces to the show.

Re-joining the current cast are Mario Falcone, Lauren Pope and Mike Hassini.


Plus, after a year away from the show, James 'Arg' Argent is also due to return to filming, and will appear mid way through series 21.

Meanwhile, brand new additions to the cast include new girls Ruby Lacey and Maddie Hooper, who are best pals with current cast member Georgia Kousoulou.

And favourites back on screens include Gemma Collins and Bobby Norris.

The Essex favourites kick off a brand new series of TOWIE by jetting off to Marbella on a trip that features plenty of tears, friendship fall-outs, insecurities and new romances.

In the opening episode of the series, Chloe Sims comes face to face with Pete for the first time since he reconciled with girlfriend Megan. As he explains his recent distance, Chloe is in no mood for forgiveness.

Elsewhere, Amber T’s relationship with Dan hits yet another complication when Gemma reveals what Dan has been saying about her. Has this Essex romance reached breaking point?

The Only Way Is Essex 2017 airs on ITVBe at 10PM on Sunday and Wednesday nights.
