There’s good news for TOWIE fans who are missing Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet on the show as the Essex power couple have announced that their spin-off Baby Steps has been commissioned for a brand new series.
Tommy & Georgia: Baby Steps was originally aired as a two-episode special following the pair as they welcomed their baby son Brody into the world last year but it’s been so successful that ITVBe bosses have ordered a full series of six episodes.
The exciting news was revealed in a video posted on Instagram as Tommy told fans, “Look who’s back! They’ve only gone and given us another six episodes.”
“Six episodes! Baby Steps is back! We’re so excited,” Georgia added.
She continued, “Look how grown up Brody is, I can’t cope. Thank you so much to everyone who tuned in last time. This would not be possible if it wasn’t for you! Thank you so much for your love and support and we can’t wait to be back.”

The first of the really big names to come from TOWIE, Amy quit the show in 2011 and welcomed her first daughter, Polly, in 2017. She also has a son from a different relationship who she's kept out of the limelight, but accidentally revealed his name was Ritchie in an interview.
Alongside the video, Georgia wrote, “BABY STEPS IS BACK!!!! This time we have 6 EPISODES!!!!! Apparently our first series was ITVBe's biggest new commission of last year, this would not of been possible if it wasn’t for you all watching & supporting us, so we just went to say THANK YOU all soooo much!
“We are so excited for you to be on this crazy, RAW & HONEST journey with us .. let the fun begin .. #BabySteps coming soon to @ITVBe ✨.”
The reality star’s followers were thrilled with the news, including one who wrote, “Can't wait, well deserved 👏❤️.” Another added, “So excited for this! Can’t wait loved your last series.”
Speaking exclusively to Closer last year ahead of the first two episodes of Baby Steps, Georgia told us, "I can’t wait to watch it because I think people are going to be shocked. It’s filmed differently to what we’ve ever filmed before. It’s so raw. I wanted the viewer to feel like they were on the journey with us and I genuinely think that’s what we’ve achieved.”
Since giving birth, Georgia hasn’t been afraid to open up about the struggles of motherhood and she told us that she hopes her honesty will help out other new mums.
“I feel like no one ever talks about how hard it is. Women have got to stick together and I don’t want to go on Instagram and see a mum that’s just had a baby looking like she’s got her sh*t together. I don’t want to see that,” she said.
Have Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet left TOWIE?
No, Georgia and Tommy thankfully haven't left TOWIE for good, they're just taking a break following the birth of their son Brody. Chatting exclusively to Closer, Georgia explained, “I never said that I was leaving permanently. I just left to go on maternity and have my baby. I’m on maternity now so I don’t know when I’ll be back on, but I’ll definitely be back on there somewhere.
“Right now I’m just enjoying the chill bubble. You can’t get these moments back. I don’t want to rush in.”

In a teaser Georgia shared on Instagram it was also revealed that the show would also feature Tommy proposing to her. In the caption Georgia wrote, "AHHHH I’m so excited we get to share with you our crazy raw journey of parenting 🤣😭 & THE ENGAGEMENT 😭."
Honestly, just when we thought we couldn't get any more excited for the show.
