Name: James "Arg" Argent
Occupation: Crooner and former hospital radio DJ
About: The lovable yet inappropriate Arg shed the pounds when he ran the 2011 London Marathon and then put them back on despite the odd Marbs bootcamp here and there! Arg has finally moved out of his mum Pat's place and into the same building as Jess and Elliott, but will this be enough to prove to the love of his life, Lydia, that he's finally grown up?
Name: James Bennewith, but you and everyone else will know him as 'Diags'.
Occupation: Contemplated owning a cheese business and was training to be a lifeguard... but for now he's a lover-lover man.
About: Diags gets his name from his "diagonal smile". Apparently if his banter and Joey’s looks were combined an "unstoppable" lady-killing machine would be created. What Diags doesn't know is he's already an unstoppable lady-killing machine!
Name: Billie Faiers
Occupation: Minnie's co-owner
About: Bubbly, friendly and very smutty, Billie is always up for a laugh. People trust Billie and she’s privy to a lot of Essex gossip through her connections. Billie was often seen awkwardly exiting various TOWIE conversations in a rush, but not now she's got a baby! Her beautiful daughter is called Nelly (we can't confirm or deny whether she's named after the band aid adorned rapper). Bill's also engaged to her long-term beau, Greg. N'aw!
Occupation: Wordsmith, former party planner and, like Gemma, a life guru
About: Straight-talking Bobby is always there for his Gemma. She wanted Bob to move in to give her company? He moved in. She wanted Bob to move out so she could spend time with Rami? He moved out. Yep, he's loyal, sensitive and hilarious. Such is his owl-like wisdom, everyone in TOWIE seems to be confiding in him . Well, wouldn't you when he says pearlers like, "It's no skin off your m***e"!
Name: Carol Wright
Occupation: Full-time mum
About: Carol tells it like it is and we wouldn’t want to cross her... or anyone in the Wright family, come to think of it! She was often left to sweep up her offspring's Lauren Goodger-sized problems, but nowadays she's the shoulder for daughter Jess to cry on when she's having boy trouble. Carol can have fun with the best of 'em though and she's often seen partying away with her mum, Nanny Pat.
Name: Charlie Sims
About: The deli owner has been "under the bus" more than a mechanic, but stylish Charlie has remained a cool customer throughout his break-ups and subsequent make-ups with Ferne.
Name: Chloe Sims
Occupation: Former Playboy Bunny and full-time mum.
About: Chloe is funny, sweet-natured and always impeccably turned out. It's no wonder a certain Essex hunk won't let their relationship die.
Name: Danni Armstrong
About: Danni is a fashion designer and bubbly boutique owner. In fact, she couldn't be more bubbly if she was found in a chocolate bar known to contain bubbles.
