Amy Childs could make a surprise return to The Only Way Is Essex for a new movie, it's been claimed.
The eighth series of the ITV2 series starts tonight, and plans are in place for a feature film to be released by the end of the year.
Despite having not been in the past six series, Amy could return, along with other favourites such as Mark Right.
It was reported earlier this year that the show's stars are set to film the rumoured movie in Dubai over the summer.
Talk of a TOWIE movie has been going on for some time and bosses are keen to get the ball rolling this year.
The trusted insider told the The Sun newspaper: “There have been rumours of a Towie film for a while but bosses have now finally talked to the cast about it.
“They said that while they are currently concentrating on the new series later this month, the film is something they want to do and it could even kick off as early as this summer.
“Dubai would be the perfect place as it is the current hip destination for young Essex boys and girls and it would be a great sunny location to film in.”
And another source said of the movie: “It would be more structured than the series but it would still be about the real stories of the cast and finding out what is going on in their lives.”
