What axed TOWIE stars have been up to since mass cull including off-screen romances

The Only Way Is Essex bosses decided to give the long-running show a shake-up in July this year, which meant saying goodbye to 10 of its cast members.

They joined many other faces who abruptly left the show due to behind the scenes choices.

Although, many of the stars were left "devastated" and "gutted" by the shock decision, they've managed to put the heartbreak of losing their jobs behind them and paved new careers…

The pair have launched a podcast together called, "Who Wants to Adult Anyway?"

They describe the show as a place where they will be, "talking all things growing up, how we are navigating adulthood and trying to absolutely wing this thing called life."

The latest episode of the show featured current cast member Chloe Brockett who discussed the sexism she'd experienced following her fling with James Locke – the ex of former friend Yaz Oukhellou.

She told the hosts, "There still is that glass ceiling where it’s more acceptable for a man to do something than a woman.

"What is wrong with talking about the fact that I have sex? I wasn’t in a relationship with the person I had sex with, and I don’t want to be."

Courtney, 26, also runs her own beauty company, Palm Beauty London, and Chloe, 30, has jewellery brand J Florence London.

Chloe is also renovating her first home in East London with City Trader boyfriend George Wales.

Ella Rae Wise

She may have departed one reality show but she hasn't said goodbye to the genre forever.

She is expected to appear on Celebrity Ex on the Beach, alongside Love Island's Anton Danyluk and Ru Paul's A'Whora – real name George Boyle.

On the show the 21 year old met Katie Price's former fiancé Kris Boyson and the pair are now reportedly dating.

While she has also been busy studying and become a qualified Aesthetics Practitioner, which means she can administer cosmetic procedures such as lip fillers and Botox. She does exactly that for her company Cupid Cosmetics.

Clelia Theodorou and Tommy Cole

Since leaving the show, Clelia and Tommy have pursued a relationship and look super loved up. Clelia has even called her new boyfriend the 'love of my life'. Cute!

Harry Lee and Tom McDonnell

The best friends decided to move into a bachelor pad together calling it their 'next chapter'.

Personal Trainer Tom showed his clients just how qualified he was for the job by running the London Marathon. His sporting achievement raised over £4500 for Havens Hospital.

While Harry seems to be enjoying posting plenty of topless snaps on his Instagram – if you've got it, flaunt it!

Harry Derbidge

Sadly, since the show Harry has split from fiancé Dean Rowland.

Dean wrote on Instagram, "After four long amazing years, Harry and I have decided to part ways; this is totally on good terms. Nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure taking us different paths for now.

"There are no secret nor salacious events at the root of decision- just two best friends realising it's time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives possible.

"I would trust him with anything and he still remains that important person in my life."

Harry continues to be a very talented makeup artist who regularly posts pictures of himself in drag, as well as running beauty brand Celebrity Brushes.

Bobby Norris

Bobby, who decided to leave the show on his own accord, has pursued a career in presenting and journalism.

Amongst his regular jobs, he interviews a celebrity each week for New magazine. Most recently, he chatted to Frankie Sims about her dramatic split from Jack Fincham.

Nicole Bass

Nicole recently celebrated her big 3-0 with a glitzy party, surrounded by showbiz friends including Ella and Bobby.

She has founded her own business, Confidence Aesthetics, offering microblading, chemical peels and B12 injections.

She said of her venture, “The pandemic put in a position where I actually thought about my life, my career and my future. So that’s when I put together my business. And I’ve been working really hard on that since and it’s doing really really well.”
