Twelve new faces are set to join The Only Way is Essex, following the recent departure of Mark Wright, Kirk Norcross, Maria Fowler and Harry Derbridge.
The Sun reports that the new additions include a family of six and property developer, Georgia Dorsett who is looking likely to become one of the main characters.
A TOWIE spokesperson told The Sun:
"Georgia really impressed producers and will become one of the main characters in the new series.
"She is like a female Mark Wright. Girls really like her and she is a tough old cookie who doesnt take any nonsense."
James Arg Argents grandmother will also get a more prominent role in the show, after her guest appearance in the Christmas special.
The source told the paper:
"Producers have always said they want to keep the show fresh. That means bringing in new characters and looking at established cast who have new directions in their lives.
"These new cast members will really shake the show up and give it a new edge."
The full line-up for the next series of the show will be announced later this week.
