Towie’s Bobby Norris quits show to present The Sun’s brand new spin-off series launching in September

BOBBY Norris has quit The Only Way Is Essex to team up exclusively with The Sun for our very own spin-off show.

The 34-year-old star will be the face of our brand new digital series, Towie: The Official After Party, which will kick off alongside the new series of the reality show in September.


Each week, The Sun will be joined by host Bobby and cast members to discuss the latest happenings in Essex after they air on ITVBe.

It will be available to watch exclusively on The Sun Online, with fan favourite Bobby scooping all the insider goss from the Towie set, and interviewing his pals.

Speaking about the exciting move, Bobby shared: "It’s no secret that presenting is my passion but what has been a big secret is that I’m fronting this new show for The Sun readers and I’m so excited about it.

After 10 years of TOWIE the show and the fans have been such a huge part of my life, but you haven’t seen the last of me and this is the start of a new chapter!

"This was an opportunity to be a professional gossip and something I couldn’t refuse! With some big changes on the next series of Towie happening I’m also ready to embrace change this year.

"I decided that now felt like the right time to take a step back from being a regular cast member to focus on presenting. It’s going to be so much fun catching up with Towie cast on set and hanging out in the studio together."

He added: "After 10 years of Towie the show and the fans have been such a huge part of my life, but you haven’t seen the last of me and this is the start of a new chapter! Stay tuned!"

The series is a co-production between Towie's Lime Pictures Digital and The Sun, with Lime Pictures producing BAFTA-winning Towie since 2010.

Bobby joined the cast in 2012, and quickly won over viewers with his dazzling personality – which is sure to be a similar hit with Sun readers.

The Only Way Is Essex returns for its 29th series next month for an 11-episode run, and our new digital series will follow each week.
