The Only Way Is Essex’ is back with a bang, on a whole new channel and in a whole new country, with the latest series launching with an Ibiza special.

We’re expecting that the latest series of the ITV docuseries will see the usual mix of romance, arguments and drama from Essex’s finest, including Gemma Collins, Ferne McCann and Dan Osborne, who are all returning to ‘TOWIE’.

But what about the members of the cast who won’t be returning to the show?

During the four years that ‘TOWIE’ has been on the air, viewers have said goodbye to a number of the show's biggest stars, who've gone on to experience great success, including Mark Wright, Amy Childs and Joey Essex… not to mention a fair few who are clinging to their 14th minute of fame by their fingernails.

While some have achieved success with their own shows, others have cashed in on their ‘TOWIE’ background, appearing in other reality shows such as ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ and ‘Dancing On Ice’. And then, of course, there are those who’ve been reduced to turning up to the opening of an envelope or throwing shade on Twitter to keep their names in the newspapers.

Find out what some of your favourite former cast members have been getting up to since bidding farewell to Brentwood in the hope of carving a name for themselves outside of ‘The Only Way Is Essex’...
