The last series of The Only Way Is Essex saw Lauren Goodger leave and it appears that more familiar faces may disappear before the next series returns to our screens.
Over the years Amy Childs, Mark Wright and Kirk Norcross have also decided to leave the show to work on other projects. However according to Heat magazine, James 'Arg' Argent's ex, Lydia Bright and Chloe Sims could be axed from the show.

An insider claimed: "Lydia Bright could be the first big-name casualty, as she's becoming more interested in her own shop and clothing line.
"Another could be Chloe Sims. She didn't find the last series exciting."
However, they're not the only ones as Cara Kilbey and Tom Pearce have also been names rumoured to be getting the boot.
The source added: "Cara's been moaning on set about too much filming. Tom Pearce's position is also shaky - he failed to get a romance going."
