TOWIE's Bobby Norris to front new digital series with The Sun
Bobby Norris: “This was an opportunity to be a professional gossip and something I couldn’t refuse!”

Hosted by TOWIE star Bobby Norris, who has announced that he’s stepping back from the main show to focus on presenting, this new digital series will be available exclusively on The Sun Online.

Each week, Bobby and cast members will discuss new episodes of TOWIE after they air on ITVBe. The spin off episodes will see Bobby scoop all the insider gossip from the set of TOWIE and interview cast members each week to get reactions to the latest storylines unfolding in Essex, says The Sun.

Bobby Norris says: “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. 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. 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!”

TOWIE: The Official After Party is a co-production between Lime Pictures Digital and The Sun.

TOWIE, produced by Lime Pictures, launched in 2010 and is set to return for its 29th series on ITVBe next month for an 11 episode run with episodes of the new digital series to follow each week.
