Following the shock news that the Chloe Sims and her sisters Frankie and Demi have quit TOWIE, the siblings have announced the details of their exciting new project that will reportedly see them earn £1MILLION.
Chloe, Frankie and Demi have landed their own reality show, which will also feature their brother Charlie. Remember him?
Charlie appeared on TOWIE alongside his family and then-girlfriend Ferne McCann for two years before announcing his shock departure in a series of furious tweets in 2015. He’s now set to make a major reality TV comeback after seven years on The Sims’ new show alongside his fiancée Georgia Shults.
While it appears Charlie completely left showbiz behind and went back to everyday life, Chloe surprised us last year when she revealed that was far from the truth. Never underestimate a Sim.
Speaking on PrettyLittleThing’s Behind Closed Door podcast, Chloe revealed that her younger brother Charlie is now in fact, her agent. Meaning that while he might not be on our TV screens (yet), he’s still very much behind the scenes.
After she was asked about the best way for men to get in contact with her for a potential date, the TOWIE star admitted that she was “too old” for messages on social media.
“Call my agent which is my my brother and he’ll get you,” she joked.

There was controversy over the creation of TOWIE
Remember Big Brother 8 winner Brian Belo? He claimed to have had the original idea for TOWIE and even filmed a pilot called Totally Essex starring Mark Wright, Sam Faiers, Amy Childs and Kirk Norcross. Lime Pictures, the production company that makes the show, always denied Brian's claims and they eventually reached an out of court settlement in 2013.
Who is Charlie Sims?
Charlie (or Charles as he prefers to be known on Instagram) featured on the ITVBe show alongside his sisters for two years, before leaving in 2015.
According to his Instagram he is now an athlete as well as a media advisor. He represents media personalities such as his older sister Chloe and boxers.
He even founded the company Huge Boxing, who “advise and consult high profile professional boxers, around the world”.
Charlie will be making a return to reality TV next year alongside his fiancée Georgia Shults and sisters Chloe, Frankie and Demi in a Kardashians-esque show all about the Sims family and we can't wait to watch it.

Are Charlie Sims and Ferne McCann dating?
After a very rocky relationship Charlie and Ferne finally called it quits in 2015 after five years together. Their drama played out on our screens until Charlie quit the show and reportedly gave Ferne an ultimatum.
A source at the time told The Mirror, “It’s him or the show, this came as a huge shock to Ferne who is really upset that he would put her in this position”.
Despite the messy break up there’s seemingly no hard feelings between the two now, after Ferne wrote in her autobiography, Cross My Heart, “I will always love and adore Charlie”.
Who is Charlie Sims' girlfriend?
Charlie is in fact engaged to make-up artist Georgia Shults after he popped the question back in 2018 on a romantic trip to Singapore.
He announced the news by sharing a photo Georgia showing off her diamond ring with the caption, “No words....but one. Yes!”.
While there’s no news yet on when they will walk down the aisle, we hope it’s one big glam Essex party.
Why did Charlie Sims leave TOWIE?
Charlie sensationally quit the show after rows with both ex Ferne as well as his older sister Chloe. It was reported at the time that Charlie no longer wanted to be in the public eye and was hurt that his girlfriend and sister “chose the show over him”.
He tweeted “So sad not to lose one ...but two people you love dearly to a TV show. Everyone can point the finger at me.. But I have morals. And dignity.
“And some sort of self respect. I wish @Chloe_Sims and @fernemccann the best with their lives. But always live knowing you chose the show.”
He then added, “And finally to the @OnlyWayIsEssex .. I won't be taking part anymore. It's Time to grow up and move on. Wish everyone the best on the show!
“Stay true to who you are. Today I became me the real Charlie sims.. And so another chapter begins.”
Is Charlie Sims returning to TOWIE?
Following his exit it seemed unlikely that Charlie would return but TOWIE viewers have since seen him make a brief return for the 10 year reunion. However, given that he and his sisters have bagged a show of their own, we probably won't see Charlie on TOWIE any time soon.
