Tommy has it perfect. He gets publicity for his own business that's doing excellent, but without being one of the main stars who air all their dirty laundry. I remember him debuting on the show and never had him down as a long term relationship kind of guy. He's proved a lot of us wrong.

Shelby Trible I have been aware with for a few years probably around three years. She was Miss Plymouth or something and dated Plymouth Argyle player Conor Hourihane. He came to Barnsley and captained us to our first trophy in over 100 years and got us promoted before joining Aston Villa. She was always around before they split. He's my second favourite Barnsley player ever so I am always going to think Pete or anyone else is a downgrade from that handsome bastard LOL

I wonder if the show will last much longer. It's usually 18 episodes a series, with midweek episodes. This one had midweek scrapped and was over in ten episodes. Plenty of people on social media not happy it's over already.

It did go to a once per week format with the episodes but the weekly episode was extended to a hour while the bi-weekly episodes were usually 45 minutes, 10 hour long episodes per series is fine with me as they normally run at least 4 seasons per year plus a Christmas special.

I don’t see the show ending any time soon, it’s still popular doing good ratings and the constantly revolving cast helps keep it reasonably fresh, it’s a cash cow for the cast members who often launch and promote businesses off the back of being in the show plus they make a ton of money from personal appearances and other reality projects.

Just occurred to me that producers should look to get Muggy Mike and Jack and Dani of Love Island fame on board for the next series. Would be the best cast since the early days of Mark Wright and Arge and co.

So another Love Island reject coming to the show with Kady Mcdermott already filmed with her boyfriend Myles.

Shelby has ruined herself with the work she's had done such as her huge stupid lips. She was a lot hotter when dating my second favourite Barnsley player ever Conor Hourihane during his success with us and Pete isn't in his league.

It's good of Tommy to open up on the show about his mental health. One of my favourites and his Mallett Footwear website has some good products. He's done well to be a success through the show with a proper business, instead of relying on PR appearances and magazine deals and calendars and books. I even read once his products are sold in high end shops such as Selfridges and Harrods so he's done amazing to presuade them Clap

It stands to reason that Love Island cast members join TOWIE and similar shows as it’s the same kind of reality trash, they often know many of the cast and it keeps them in the public eye raising their profile so they can coin in at those PA’s.
I’ve said before I’d like to see Muggy Mike and Jack and Dani all of Love Island fame join.

Not much of note from this series so far other than Dan Edgar looks like a Lego man with his new hair Courtney is looking very fit with her revamped image, splitting with Myles has worked for her it seems. Surely a matter of time before Lockie splits with his missus. Gemma Collins is still irritating as ever.

Jon Clark’s brother telling Myles exactly what he thought of him was entertaining stuff. Mr Charisma himself Mike Hassini is back.

Huge cast changes this series with around 8 or more regular cast members shown the axe. Nobody really of note fortunately, Chloe Lewis was very easy on the eye but had contributed nothing worthwhile for ages as she seemed to prefer to keep much of her life off screen, producers won't like that. Chloe Meadows seems to be going the same route and might be the next to go. 

Not sure if Arge and Gamma are gone for good or if they are just taking time out while Arge rehabs and they work on their relationship. 

Seems you now have Essex old guard and Essex the new generation with Lockie, Dan, Diags, Tom, Pete and co and then you have new boy Harry and his mates. 

Nice to see a new older character in the cab driver(can't remember her name), fair play to Gatsby for trying his luck there as she's an attractive lady. 

Chloe Simms and Dan E is a weird one didn't see that one coming, seems he's still been having fun on the side with Amber T. Will never understand what so many women see in Dan.

Unlike MIC the newbies added to TOWIE aren't good additions.  They are too young and annoying.

Then you have others who look try and copy the original cast, which is something I noticed too......


Lockie was a good return and it ended up only being one episode, which was a shame.

Dan Edgar drama bores me every series. He's so dull but if women want looks but nothing else he's the wet behind the ears type to go for.

Chloe Sims is ridiculous. She appears to have had even more work done to try and stay young and has survived the show for years without ever having a meaningful relationship with a man.

I will never understand why women fall at the feet of Dan E, he has the personality of a house brick and at least in my heterosexual opinion hes not that good looking, not at the level that all women find him irresistible anyway. 

Funny thing is it's the same with Chloe Simms, people talk about her like shes a goddess but I cant see it at all, the fact that shes failed to hold down a longterm relationship during her years on the show says to me it's her with the issues not the guys she dates. She seems to have a very high opinion of herself in the same way Gemma Collins has. 
On a side note her sister seems a really nice girl, attractive too. 

That picture does suggest the newbies are carbon copies of the trio of Harry/Sam/Amy, must admit Joey does really remind me of Harry. I guess you cant blame them for trying to recapture the magic of the early days. New boy Harry also reminds me a little of Mark Wright.

Superb hour and a half that I would recommend everyone to watch not just fans of the show. It gives a cracking insight in to reality TV life of looking rich on TV but being absolutely skint. How thanks to Mallet Footwear being sold all over the place including high end shops like Selfridges and Harrods he has made millions from a talent unlike many in his line of work relying on being a social media influencer or media interviews.

He didn't have an easy upbringing but now is a millionaire and in a long term relationship with a hot woman. He's been one of my reality TV favourites for a long time as he doesn't court fame. He's quite happy being in the background and just having a few quite scenes to keep his face out there so he's not forgotten.
