The Only Way Is Essex has been renewed for another three series.

The ITV2 show is racking up the episodes with a move to its own channel next month.

From October, TOWIE will air on ITV's new ITVBe, a new channel dedicated to reality telly.

And to coincide with the move, ITV have confirmed that the show will remain on air until at least the end of 2015, with a further three series and a Christmas special planned for next year alone.

ITVBe will launch on October 8 on Freeview, Sky and Virgin and will air the latest series of TOWIE.

It'll kick off with a double Ibiza special and feature the return of Mario Falcone who was suspended from the summer's latest series over claims that he snorted cocaine.

“Towie has become a mainstay of ITV’s schedule and bosses have high hopes for it on new channel ITVBe," an insider told The Sun on Sunday newspaper today. “As well as the new series that starts next month, it has also now been commissioned for the whole of 2015 at the very least.

“Love it or hate it, you won’t be able to get away from Towie.”
