Jake Hall

Name: Jake Hall

Occupation: Part-time footballer, fashion designer

About: Cocky, delusional, spontaneous, good looking... Jake is one dangerous combination!

TOWIE tree: Once his ex started capturing eyes (and hearts) of the hunky, hunky men of the Essex scene, it wasn't long before Jake realised he needed Chloe L back in his life. He followed her to Wales in a taxi (which must have cost at least £300!) before running into the freezing cold Welsh sea to prove his love. Has the romantic gesture managed to turn the tide? If Chloe L's mate, Ferne, gets her way - no! After Jake denied kissing Lauren when he blatantly did, Ferne hates the man.

Chloe Lewis

Name: Chloe L

About: Beautiful, sweet and mild-mannered, Chloe L is quite simply a delight.

TOWIE tree: After six years on and off with Jake, Chloe L was taken under the wing of Ferne and Chloe's former girl bandmate, Jess. With Chloe now on the Essex scene, it wasn't long until her ex, Jake, followed suite to try and win her back. After skinny-dipping in the freezing Welsh sea to prove his love, it seems Jake may have weaselled his way back into her life despite kissing Popey.

Tommy Mallet

Name: Tommy Mallet

Occupation: Club promoter

About: There's cheeky chappies then there's Tommy Mallet. He quite literally danced into our lives when he Mallet Skanked his way to Ibiza in 2014. His energetic ways have yet to diminish!

Diags

Name: James Bennewith, but you and everyone else will know him as 'Diags' (or "Digs" if you're Chloe).

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!

Billie Faiers

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!

Bobby Cole Norris

Name: Bobby

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"!

Carol Wright

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.
