TOWIE gossip: Stars don't want Lauren Goodger and Amy Childs back!

Lauren Goodger

The stars of The Only Way Is Essex have said they don't want to see Lauren Goodger and Amy Childs back.

Speaking ahead of tonight's special show and tomorrow night's live episode, the TOWIE cast claimed the series was better off without the pair who quit.

Mario Falcone said: "I don't think Amy Childs should come back. She slags it off too much."

And Joey Essex agreed: "People who are disrespectful to the show don't deserve to come back.

"This is no, disagreement - what's the word? - disrespect against anyone else but a lot of people have said that Amy digs out people in her column. Like, she digged out Sam [Faiers] a few times."

On Lauren Goodger's departure to take part in Dancing On Ice, Mario quipped: "I don't think anyone has realised she's not been there to be honest.

"With the others, it feels like they've left, but with Lauren you don't notice."

Speaking to DigitalSpy, James 'Arg' Argent said: "As much as she has her diva moments and she can be a bit of a pain in the arse, I do love her.

"The thing that's funny about her is, even before TOWIE started, she admitted she always felt she was famous anyway.

"She loves taking a picture of herself, she loves a pout - and she loves airbrushing herself on Instagram!"

The Only Way Is Essex airs tonight at 10PM on ITV2.
