TOWIE season 24 – how many episodes?

Get ready for series 24 to be more exotic than ever as we’ll see the Essex lot head out to Koh Samui in Thailand!

After a huge ‘TOWIE cull’ in 2018, which involved the axing of Amber Turner, Yazmin Oukhellou, James Locke, Myles Barnett and more, a few fresh faces will make an appearance on the show in 2019.

Normally The Only Way is Essex airs for around ten episodes so we can expect a series 24 finale around May 19th 2019.
