Over the years, we've seen the show introduce reality stars and their beloved families into the mix, including the frankly iconic Wright family (Mark Wright, Jess Wright, Nanny Pat, Elliot Wright and Carol Wright), Gemma Collins and her mum Joan Collins and the adorable Bright family, headed up by Lydia Bright and her mum Debbie.
We can't imagine Brentwood without strong family units. However, following rumours that the Sims sisters pulled out of the recent cast trip to the Dominican Republic just two days before they were due to fly out because of 'big disagreements' off camera, it's now been confirmed that they've quit the show.
A TOWIE spokesperson told Closer Online, “After dedicating over a decade to TOWIE, Chloe Sims has decided to depart the show.
"Chloe has been an iconic cast member and feels like it's the right time to leave the show, as she enters a new chapter in her life.”
Not only has Chloe left the show but her younger sisters Frankie and Demi will no longer star on TOWIE either. The door is still open for the trio so here's hoping they'll return.
The confirmation comes after reports surfaced that the sisters are quitting the show so they can potentially go it alone.
The report reveals that the trio are plotting to become 'the UK's answer to the Kardashians with HUGE new TV show'.
A source told The Sun, "There's a lot of interest in Chloe, Demi and Frankie right now. Undoubtedly they are Towie's biggest stars with Chloe being one of the longest-serving cast members but the idea is for them to get their very own Kardashian-style series.
"Their team has been meeting with TV bosses to discuss the potential show and, as Towie viewers will already know, there's never a dull moment with them."
To add fuel to the fire, Chloe, who has been on the show since 2011, apparently no longer wants to be a part of the show's constant drama. And who could blame her, she's definitely had her fair share of agg throughout the years, from her on/off relationship with Pete Wicks to her almighty feud with Dan Edgar and Amber Turner.
A source added to the publication, "Chloe has grown increasingly tired of the childish storylines and constant drama. She wants fans to see there's much more to her than that."
Are we sensing a new chapter for the Sims sisters? They could follow in the footsteps as Sam Faiers and Billie Shepherd who had their own TV show.
