TOWIE: Series 7 air date confirmed!

by Anna Howell

It’s the news that every TOWIE fan in the country has been waiting for…. It has been confirmed today that The Only Way Is Essex will return to ITV2 on Sunday, September 30 for its seventh series!

ITV confirmed the news themselves yesterday afternoon by taking to social networking site, Twitter, to tell fans: “It’s back! The Only Way Is Essex returns 10pm Sunday 30 September @ITV2 #TOWIE #essex”.

As per usual filming format, the shows we will see on our screens will have been filmed only a matter of days before, meaning that the cast, including Lydia Bright, James Argent, Gemma Collins, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Mario Falcone, have not yet started filming for it, unlike their London rivals, made In Chelsea, who are already half way through filming their fourth series.

This news comes just days after one of the stars of the hit ITV2 reality show, Gemma Collins, revealed that plans are underway to make a feature length film of the glamorous antics of the Essex gang.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper this week, Gemma confirmed: “Yeah it’s gonna happen. If Sex And The City can do it, so can we.”

“It’ll be fab, everyone will love it, why not?

“We don’t know where it will be filmed, we don’t know when, but I mean we’re just normal people with crazy lives.

“Some people only go out on birthdays and Christmases. We’re out every night of the week.”

This news comes after much speculation during the summer break as to which cast member s will still be starring in the show after new producers announced a show revamp including sacking those cast members deemed not interesting enough, and changing the format slightly to resemble that of the MTV reality show, Geordie Shire!
The Only Way Is Essex returns to our screens on Sunday, September 30, at 10pm on ITV2/ITV2 HD
