With TOWIE returning to our screens this weekend (Sunday 24 March, to be exact), things are hotting up between the cast.

In true The Only Way is Essex fashion, there’s been some romance – with Dan Edgar and Ella Rae Wise hooking up in Bali – and plenty of drama, as Ella’s blossoming relationship with Dan has driven a wedge between her and her former bestie Harry Derbidge. At least she’s mended her rift with Dani Imbert though.

Ahead of series 33, Jordan Brook has lifted the lid on the cast member who has changed the most since the last time we saw them on our screens.

In a new video filmed on the beach in Bali (must be nice), Jordan revealed there’s been a “dynamic change” with Diags – aka James Bennewith – since he started dating girlfriend Jodie Wells.

“Diags has actually become the most dignified out here out of them three that I hang around with,” Jordan said, referring to fellow pals Dan Edgar and Roman Hackett.

“Obviously I’m the most dignified, then Diags is… we’ve now got dignified Diags.”

Jordan added, “Obviously he’s now loved up with Jodie.”

Speaking about their friendship group, he continued, “We’ve got an incredible lot of boys banter. If I’m honest the boys group has been really, really funny.

“I think you can tell that we’re four really close lads who just really want to take the mick out of each other 24/7 if I’m honest.”

But things aren’t as harmonious among the rest of the cast as teaser for the upcoming series has teased some serious “tension” between Diags and his former love interest Elma Pazar when Jodie joins him in Bali.

Diags and Elma were last seen having an explosive row as their love triangle came to a head, but will they be able to patch things up and go back to being friends? Only time will tell…
