TOWIE newbie Courtney Green has admitted that Mario is her ideal type...

TOWIE is FINALLY back on our screens, with series 17 kicking off on Sunday February 28.


The cast has changed a lot over the years and we’re aren’t the only ones who like to dream about previous TOWIE stars. One of the show’s newbies, Courtney Green, has admitted that she wouldn’t mind kissing a former Essex hotty…


‘I’d snog Mario (Falcone)! I like tall, dark, Italian looking boys,’ revealed Ms Green, 23.


Could this lead to a new TOWIE hook-up?

Earlier this month, Mario, 28, left fans questioning whether he wanted to rekindle his romance with former TOWIE co-star, Lucy Mecklenburgh, after posting a cryptic message on Instagram but perhaps now he’ll take a fancy to Courtney, who actually looks pretty similar to Lucy, 24.

Courtney also spoke about TOWIE favourite, Gemma Collins, admitting that she wouldn’t want to ‘cross Gemma Collins’.

Meet the new boys joining the cast of TOWIE – including Love Island’s Jon Clark!

She added: ‘Gemma seems to have a lot of fights so she seems quite up for it. Although, Megan McKenna said she was lovely. As long as she never wanted to fight me then I’d love to be her friend.’

Naw, cute! We’re also excitied to watch Courtney’s BFF and other TOWIE newbie, Chloe Meadows, who admitted to being ‘so nervous’ about the first episode to air.


But which original TOWIE member would Chloe kiss?

Ms Meadows revealed: ‘Joey Essex! He’s funny and I love people that are funny. I don’t know him – I need to meet him!’

Oooh, ANOTHER potential romance.

Tune in to TOWIE on Sunday and Wednesdays on ITVBe at 10pm.
