To the surprise of absolutely nobody, TOWIE series 33 is giving.

Not only has Dan Edgar and Ella Rae Wise hooking up in Bali caused more carnage than even we could possibly imagine, but OG of OGs Lauren Goodger has made a spectacular return, AND we have a brand new TOWIE cast member who knows how to play up to the camera almost as much as his show bestie.

His name is Freddie Bentley and if you're a telly addict like everyone employed by Closer online, then you've definitely seen his face before...

Freddie announced his TOWIE debut last month on Instagram, posting a snap of him and bestie Ella with the caption, “The only way is… FREDDIE BABY!! “I’m buzzing to have joined the cast of @towie series 33 alongside my best friend @ellaraewisex doing what we do best together ❤️ coming soon to ITVBE😜🎥❤️‍🔥✌🏼.”

Ella was quick to reply in the comments section, writing, “We are going to have a blast. I am so proud of you Fred ❤.”

Who is Freddie Bentley?

Freddie is a new cast member for series 33 of TOWIE. He joined the show as Ella Rae Wise's bestie soon after she returned from Bali.

Which of the TOWIE cast did Freddie Bentley know beforehand?

According to Freddie he knew most of the cast prior to filming. He was definitely friends with Ella Rae Wise, Saffron Lempriere, Ella Barnes (who is said to be joining the cast later this series) and Harry Derbidge (whether they're still friends following Harry's feud with Ella remains to be seen).

Has Freddie Bentley been on TV before?

He sure has. His first reality TV appearance was a rather successful one, as he finished The Circle as the runner-up behind winner Alex Hobern in 2018.

The show, which was hosted by Alice Levine and Maya Jama (before she moved on to Love Island), showed a group of contestants living in the same apartment block – but they were only allowed to communicate through their social media profiles, not all of which depicted the real them.

The aim of the game was to be voted the most popular and Freddie was just pipped at the post.

Freddie has also starred on Eating with My Ex and Celeb Ex in the City and in a recent appearance on Chloe Burrows' podcast, Freddie revealed that he was dropped from a major reality show when he was just 18 years old.
