Harry Derbridge cried for "an hour" when he heard he had been given the chop from 'The Only Way Is Essex' ahead of the upcoming fourth series
Harry Derbridge cried for "an hour" when he heard he had been given the chop from 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The 17-year-old star - who coined many of the catchphrases associated with the ITV2 reality show - explained he is now planning to appear alongside his cousin Amy Childs, who quit the series last year, in their own programme.
He told The Sun newspaper: "It was a shame. I cried for about an hour when I heard. They've got 12 new characters going in which is so many.
"I'm taking 'shut up' with me so don't anyone say it without permission. Nobody can say 'shut up' like me and Amy. No one can take away the vajazzles, the honeys, the professionals, the 100 per cents, well-jels, the shut-ups. I'd 100 per cent love to set up a rival show with the others that have left.
"I'd love to do something with me and Amy. We've both said to each other that we are going to stick together now so we're gonna. This year is going to be Harry and Amy."
Meanwhile, Amy - who now appears in her own Channel 5 series 'It's All About Amy' - explained while it was "time for Harry to move on" she would love for all of the original 'TOWIE' cast to get back together for a reunion episode in 10 years' time.
She said: "Hopefully we will have our own show as we bounce off each other so well. I thought it was time for Harry to move on. Since he left 'TOWIE' people are so interested in him and I said that to him straight away.
"I told him that you've got to be really thankful that 'TOWIE' made you but at the end of the day he has amazing things coming to him. Who knows, 'TOWIE' may get back together. I'd like us to all get back together in 10 years' time -- that would be amazing for one series."
