All the drama on TOWIE usually happens on screen, but even with the show on a break there is still plenty going on.
The stars of the show have been left worried about their roles on the hit series after ruthless new producers begun to wield the axe.
Other stars facing the axe are Chloe Sims who Heat says didn't find the last series "exciting", and Cara Kilbey who has annoyed producers with her on-set moaning.
HuffPost UK blogger and Joey Essex's best mate Tom Pearce's position is also said to be "shaky".
Back in July, it was reported Gemma Collins, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Mario Falcone, and Billi Mucklow faced the sack over a row about pay.
When we got in touch with a spokesperson for the show regarding the latest cast change rumours, they told us: "We always review the cast at the beginning of any new series so we’re unable to confirm anything at this time."
Last month saw Lauren Goodger quit the ITV2 show to appear on Dancing On Ice, and with all these possible departures, we're wondering exactly who will be left when the series returns later this year.
