Harry Derbridge's brother has joined the cast of 'The Only Way Is Essex', but the flamboyant 17 year old has warned his sibling is nothing like him
Harry Derbridge's brother has joined the cast of 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
Following the departure of Harry's cousin Amy Childs - who quit the ITV2 reality show earlier this month - bosses have been seeking out new characters to appear in the upcoming third season of 'TOWIE', and have decided the flamboyant 17 year old's brother Ronnie will be the perfect addition to the cast.
However, Harry - who dressed up as Lady Gaga for his 17th birthday during series two - explained his straight sibling is nothing like him.
He said: "I think the viewers will love him because he is completely the opposite to me. He is short, dumpy and has dark hair. And he's straight - so we won't be fighting over men."
Harry also admitted he is pleased his cousin Amy is leaving 'TOWIE' to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother' when it re-launches on Channel 5 next week because it will give him the opportunity to step into the spotlight, as he used to "blend into the background" in the shadow of the 21-year-old bombshell.
He added to The Sun newspaper: "Of course I am sad to see her go but I think it will give me a chance to show off my personality more instead of just being Amy's cousin.
"She's such a big character that sometimes I felt I just blended into a background."
