Lime Picture’s award winning TV show The Only Way is Essex returns for Series 24 and as the Essex's old favourites head off on an exotic Thai getaway (the furthest TOWIE has ever been before) a brand new generation descends upon the UK's most talked about county. Eight fresh new faces are ready to make their presence felt as they shake up Essex. A close knit group consisting of hairdresser’s Chloe Brockett and Ella Wise and best pal Joey Turner clash when they talk fillers and botox, whilst the boys get steamy chatting about Male grooming Essex style. They may be fresh-faced but the new lineages of Essex are sure to bring plenty of drama, love and friendship to your screens.
