Oh. The. Drama.
The Only Way is Essex has reportedly axed seven of their stars, as part of a shake-up for 2018.
According to OK! Magazine, they've been let go ahead of the new series, so they can focus on main cast members such as Gemma Collins.
OK! are reporting that Chris Clark, Amber Dowding, Mike Hassini and Mario Falcone are just some of the names that have been booted from the show.
Jack Ridgen, Jordan Brook, Maddie Hooper and Ruby Lacey are also said to be gone as well.
According to The Sun, a source has said 'TOWIE is like a revolving door and producers are always on the lookout for new faces that can keep the show fresh. Chris and Amber have left the series as a couple who’ve just moved into an apartment together – and often being in a happy relationship doesn’t work for the show.'
The source added 'Mike is also loved-up with a girlfriend off camera and has no real storylines to bring to the show but will continue to focus on his fitness and personal training. Producers thought Jack and Jordan were really funny and had great potential but they were lost against the bigger characters and unfortunately didn’t make the final cut.'
Maddie and Ruby were reportedly let go because they only appeared in a few episodes and 'failed to resonate with viewers.'
