Lime’s The Only Way is Essex returns for 31st series


Lime has completed the 31st series of its hit reality series, The Only Way Is Essex.

For the first time, the Liverpool-based production company, will relocate some of the storyline from its Brentwood home to Phuket.

“This series has been even more exciting as we have mixed things up by introducing our famed abroad trip mid-way through the series,” said Rebecca Kenny-Smith, Director of Programming, Lime Pictures.

“After kicking things off in Essex, viewers will see all the gossip and drama simmering in Brentwood before it erupts alongside the sun-soaked beaches of Phuket. With more episodes abroad than ever before, viewers are in for a tropical treat.”

The show, which follows the “tears, tiffs and tantrums” of its famous Essex characters has been a huge hit for ITV. As well as Phuket, other highlights on the 31st outing include the cast visiting Brentwood’s “newest gossip laundrette hotspot” which combines Prosecco and washing.

“As TOWIE remains the number one show on ITVBE, we’re delighted to welcome the show and the cast back for another exciting season of gossip and glamour from the nation’s favourite characters,” added Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning & Acquisitions and Controller, ITV2, ITVBe & CITV.

The show will return on 29th March at 9pm on ITVBE and ITVX.
