Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions for ITV, added:
‘After 10 years, ‘TOWIE’ is still going strong and remains the number one show on ITVBe.

Former stars such as Mark Wright and Amy Childs have been tipped to make a comeback to celebrate 10 years of the show that made them famous.
Speaking about Amy, a TV source previously shared:
‘Amy is royalty as far as ‘TOWIE’ bosses are concerned and they know a reunion wouldn’t be the same without her. Initial discussions have already taken place and Amy is excited.
‘She still talks to the old cast members and knows there will be some fun scenes. She is past the days of vajazzling but bosses would love her to do something tongue-in-cheek’.
