Shane Lynch is to appear in the upcoming third series of 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The Boyzone singer has agreed to be the face of new vodka brand Ver2, which will be launched in Mick and Kirk Norcross' club Sugar Hut when the third season hit screens on ITV2 next month.
However, the star - who is a "big fan" of 'TOWIE' - has vowed not to steal the spotlight from show regulars Mark Wright, Joey Essex and Lydia Bright.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "We are looking to put it into Sugar Hut, as they are interested. I am good friends with Mick, Kirk and the team. We are talking about doing a nice big launch down there.
"I'm looking forward to series three - especially as it looks like I'm going to be on it. I am a big fan of 'The Only Way Is Essex' and so is my wife.
"I went down to Sugar Hut to check the place out and it's a damn good club. It's nice to be involved. But I don't want to step on anyone's parade by becoming a regular."
Meanwhile, Amy Childs - who recently quit 'TOWIE' to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother' when it re-launches on Channel 5 tomorrow (18.08.11) - has been confirmed to feature in a one-off catch-up episode of the reality show, which will document the life, loves and drama of the cast since series two ended in May.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "A lot has happened since the last series ended in May. The gang will film new footage to get fans up to speed. Amy is a big part of 'TOWIE' and bosses don't want her to be erased.
"It'd be strange if she wasn't in the catch-up show."
