TOWIE Newquay style might become a reality in a spin-off series planned for Newquay. TOWIE bosses are discussing plans to make a new show based in Newquay, focusing on a group of twenty-somethings and their lives in the seaside town, closely linked to the series of The Only Way Is Essex.
Plans are already underway to film a group of twenty-somethings living in Newquay, which is popular with surfers, clubbers, teenagers and stag and hen parties.
Producers have been thrilled with the success of the original ITV2 series – which stars Lauren Goodger, Mark Wright and Joey Essex among others – and believe Newquay’s wild night life and eclectic mixture of people can be just as popular.
TOWIE chiefs have already commissioned the first series of The Only Way Is Liverpool and ITV2 bosses have proposed a spin-off set in Marbella, Spain – a holiday destination which is already very popular with the Essex gang.
UPDATE January 2012: The rumours were squashed that TOWIE come to Newquay. Lime Pictures, the production company that makes the show for ITV2, said a spin-off of the popular show would not be happening.
Communications Manager, Rachel Hardy, said there “certainly isn’t another version of TOWIE in the making”.
