Jodie Marsh is reportedly set to join the cast of 'The Only Way Is Essex' after growing close to current star Kirk Norcross
Jodie Marsh is set to join the cast of 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The 32-year-old former glamour model - who originally hails from Brentwood in Essex - is reportedly set to replace former leading lady Amy Childs on the ITV2 reality show, after the 21-year-old redhead quit the series in favour of appearing on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
With Jodie having got close to smooth-talking businessman Kirk Norcross following his recent split from co-star Lauren Pope, it is thought she would make the perfect addition to 'TOWIE' and would help "spice up" the upcoming third series.
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Since Kirk split up with Lauren Pope he has been hanging out with Jodie. She would definitely spice it up a bit."
However, show bosses could be set to bring in a new wave of 'TOWIE' stars after only guaranteeing the show's original cast members a place in the third series.
This means the likes of Maria Fowler, Lauren Pope, Joey Essex, Chloe Sims, Gemma Collins and Kirk's dad Mick Norcross may not be featured when the programme returns in September.
Original star Sam Faiers recently said: "It's really sad but they have said they won't be signing up all the people who were in the second series again."
