THE ONLY WAY IS ESSEX RETURNS

BRAND NEW TOWIE COMING TO ITVBe

SUNDAY 14 MARCH AT 9PM

It’s time for another visit to the gossip and glamour capital of the UK, as The Only Way Is Essex returns for its 28th series. Lifting the lid on the lives of Essex’s most colourful characters, the brand-new 11-part series will give viewers a chance to catch up on all the latest goings on from the glamorous cast.

Last series saw Essex more action-packed than ever, and since the cameras left them behind last year, Georgia and Tommy announced that they were expecting a baby boy, some of Essex’s closest friends are almost at breaking point, there are potential rekindling of controversial relationships, secret kisses and an Essex Queen deciding it's time to De-Essex…

So, what will the state of play look like now? Will the continued uncertainty faced by an international pandemic improve the harmony in Essex, or will there be more beef than ever…?

This series promises to bring lots of TOWIE sparkle to your screens, and whilst the cast are still living under the UK’s third lockdown restrictions, drama has been brewing amongst this glamorous crowd. There will be some new faces popping up along the way, alongside the iconic Harry Derbidge returning.

The Only Way Is Essex has been recommissioned by ITV’s Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions and Amanda Stavri, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment, ITV. The series is made by Lime Pictures and is executive produced by Cheryl Price and Luke McFarlane.
