Maria, on the left with Joey Essex and Chloe Sims in 2011, was in the show from the get-go but her TV career was rocked when it was alleged she'd worked as an escort. She's since said she quit 'by mutual consent' after she refused an on-screen romance with Mick Norcross.
Harry’s cousin Amy revealed that the engagement had been planned for two months in her own Instagram post, writing: “He is getting married. Congratulations to my beautiful cousin and @mrdeanrowland on your engagement, 8 weeks of knowing and organising the best engagement party for him!”
She then she shared a sweet snap of Harry holding her daughter Polly as he and Dean celebrated and wrote: “Can’t wait for Polly to be bridesmaid 👰
“You both make me so happy, thank you for making me apart of your day.” [sic]
Also in attendance at the glitzy party was Frankie Essex, TOWIE newbie Harry Lee, former X Factor contestant Tracy Leanne Jefford and Chloe Sims’ sister Frankie, who is set to join the TOWIE cast in the latest series.

Harry starred in the first three series of TOWIE between 2010 and 2011 alongside original cast members Mark Wright, Lauren Goodger, Sam Faiers and Amy Childs, when he was just 16.
He then returned briefly in 2014 while dating Essex legend Bobby Norris but their relationship hit the rocks when Harry admitted to cheating on Bobby with his ex-boyfriend.
Harry later revealed that he’s no longer on speaking terms with Bobby, telling Star magazine: “I made a mistake and it never worked out.
“He's slagged me off a couple of times. I wouldn't say hello to him. I don't want anything to do with him. It's sad."
