Why Ella Rae Wise was culled from The Only Way is Essex is one of the great mysteries of our time, right up there with the continuing popularity of James Corden.

Ella was brutally cut from the Essex based reality show following series 27 (twenty-seven!) along with ten other cast mates and we are still not over it. We may never be over it.

But, why? Whhhhhhhhhhhy? Why was she culled?

Celia Theodorou we can understand. Harry Lee basically bored off. Courtney Green and Chloe Meadows, we didn't like the decision but we got it.

But Ella -Ella! - had been at the heart of some major Essex drama including but not limited to her 'flirty friendship' with sexiest-man-in-Brentwood Pete Wicks, her major fall out with Kelsey Stratford, and her almost but not really ("did we sleep together, though?") relationship with Tom McDonnell.

But now she's back.

"I've spoken to Gemma a few times because she knows my mum. She's amazing. I'll talk to her when I need advice or just someone to speak to about anything."

"Fans of the show tell me I sound like Lauren; she's an absolute TOWIE legend!"

Not in the show, alas. But back on the Instagram grid after a worrying seven day break.

Where has she been? We're going to level with you: no idea. But maybe working her new hustle as a qualified aesthetics practitioner – someone who gives cosmetic procedures like lip fillersand Botox.

We wonder if she's working in the same clinic as Chloe Brocket, ahahahahaha just our little joke. they are enemies.

Correct us if we're wrong but isn't that Charlotte Crosby top right? Cor.

Speaking of Char, remember when Ella went to work for, or at least help promote, Stephen Bear's new tanning salon? That was an odd time.

Our extensive research (looked at social media) suggests that - ahem - Bronzing Bear may no longer be open.

Ah well.
