Name: Dan Edgar
About: Smouldering eyes, heart-breaking smile, but minus the arrogant attitude. Dan is one serious, mysterious, bona fide fittie!
TOWIE Tree: Safe to say, Dan E turned a lot of perfectly coiffured heads when he arrived on the scene in tow of pals, Arg and Diags, but he only had eyes for Jess. Lucky for him, she seemed pretty keen too (she doesn’t half have a type, doesn't she?!). Yep, slowly moving on from Ricky, Jess agreed to a few dates with our man Dan, but she quickly blew cold… and then hot again! We can barely keep up! Who knows what their current temperature range is, but with a face (and bod) like Dan’s, he’ll never be short of someone to keep him warm.
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.
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.
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!
Name: Leah Wright
About: Leah embodies the Wright spirit. Loyalty and family are tantamount to her very existence!
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!
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"!
