There’s more new arrivals to the new series of TOWIE, with a very familiar face joining the cast.
Love Island’s Jon Clark will be joining the cast of the ITVBe show, also bringing his brother Chris with him!
Jon is good friends with TOWIE stars James Lock, Dan Edgar and Mike Hassini.
He has previously lived in Marbella for three years and said he has a close relationship with brother Chris, who is also joining the cast.
The 26 year old shot to fame on the Love Island last summer, when he fell in love with his cast mate Hannah Elizabeth, making it all the way to the final.
Jon and Hannah came second in the ITV2 show, and even got engaged in the show’s finale – after just 6 weeks of knowing each other. However, the two then broke up in a very public spat on Twitter.
Taking to Twitter, Jon said at the time: “Saying you wish I died of cancer that is low! Scum bags!”
John told TOWIE producers he’s single, and looking for love after his previous failed attempts.
The brothers Clark are clearly excited to be joining the show and Jon posted a message on Twitter following the announcement.
‘Thank you to everyone for your kind messages! Such a loverly reaction,’ he wrote.
‘new chapter of my life @OnlyWayIsEssex and with my bro @ChrisJClark_’
Jon and Chris – who start filming tonight – aren’t the only new faces arriving in Essex.
The Only Is Essex returns to ITVBe soon.
