ITV‘s hit reality TV show The Only Way is Essex has been going strong for a massive 24 seasons as of 2019.

The show often airs twice a year with one or two spin-off shows added for good measure.

As always episodes of the show are drama-packed and full of glamour and series 24 was no different.

Yes. TOWIE series 24 came to an end as of May 26th 2019.

The show aired every Sunday from March 17th 2019 at 9 pm.

Series 24 was made up of 11 episodes which is about average for the show. Previous series 20 and 21 had 18 episodes but that’s the most TOWIE has ever stretched to.

What to expect from TOWIE series 25

The Only Way is Essex season 24 was very different from previous series as the show addressed some very important issues.

Bobby Norris started an online petition ‘Bobby’s Bill’ which aims to see online homophobia made a specific criminal offence.

His petition will be debated in parliament on July 1st 2019.

Tommy Mallet also continued his campaign ‘#BoysBareAll’ into series 24 and his girlfriend Georgia Kousoulou bravely went barefaced on national TV in a bid to create awareness over adult acne and even launched her own campaign ‘#keepthegramreal’.

Series 25 is likely to follow in the same vein as the cast of the show looks to be using its platform for good.
