They made their names on TOWIE, but what are they up to now?

James ‘Arg’ Argent, Sam Faiers and Jessica Wright are TOWIE stalwarts, appearing on the show since it first began

in 2010. We’ve seen them fight, cry, laugh, get kicked off, return, become aunts, the lot!

However, what happened to those who left? Just what is ‘extra’ Maria Fowler doing now?

With series 14 of the show just about to

start, we take a look at some of the old cast and what they’re up to now…

Dino and Georgio Giogiades

The hunky Greek identical twins only

appeared in two series (three and four) of the show after they failed to make a

significant impact on storylines. After laying low for a while, the pair

released a collection of training supplements and continue to be regulars on

the Essex scene. Both are still friends with Mario Falcone and Ricky Rayment.

Maria Fowler

Glamour model Maria ended her time in the

show in 2011, after famously being called an ‘extra’ by Kirk Norcross. She

moved to Perth in 2012 to live with boyfriend Lee Croft, but after they broke

up headed back to Blight to live in Derby. she has been attacked twice in bar brawls – once in February

2014 and another in December 2014, both of which left her bloodied and bruised.

Despite giving up alcohol briefly after the attack, she has since been spotted

drinking. Maria has also released her own fashion range.

Amy Childs

Arguably one of the most successful stars

to come out of TOWIE, Amy has enjoyed a number of high profile reality stints

since the show, appearing in Celebrity Big Brother in 2011 and Channel 4 winter

sports show The Jump in 2014. She has also released her own clothing range, a

fragrance, a fitness DVD and a range of eyelashes.

Charlie King

Charlie appeared in series nine to 13 of

the show, most famously befriending Bobby Norris and briefly dating Gemma

Collins
, although they never had sex. The reason behind that was revealed late

in 2014, when Charlie announced he was gay. He has since posed naked for

Attitude magazine and is famous for his new, ripped physique.

Kirk Norcross

Kirk is one of the only stars of the show

to briefly return. He initially left after series 3, then returned in series 7,

but left again claiming it had changed too much since the first time he was on.

He appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2012, was briefly engaged to American

tattoo model Cami-Li (yeah, her off CBB 2015) and naked pictures of him leaked online in 2013. In recent

years, he has been trying to make it as an actor.

Mark Wright

His on/off relationship with Lauren Goodger was one of the biggest talking points of the early series, but he quit the show after three series. He has since enjoyed a number of reality TV stints, taking part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and Strictly Come Dancing in 2014, the first star from TOWIE to take part in the BBC1 show. He now presents on Heart Radio and Take Me Out: The Gossip. He is due to marry former Corrie actress Michelle Keegan this summer.
