TOWIE’s Junaid Ahmed may have only been on the show for two seasons, but in that short time he’s established himself as someone who definitely doesn’t mince his words and isn’t afraid of a confrontation or two – or 17.

The reality star – who refers to himself as "a b***h with a heart of gold" – rowed with the likes of Amber Turner, Chloe Brockett, Courtney Green and Chloe Meadows in explosive scenes last series.

And even now, after making amends with Chloe, Junaid has found himself at loggerheads with besties Dani Imbert and Ella Rae Wise over his actions on the cast’s trip to Thailand.

Given that he’s not shy about sharing his opinions, it’s no surprise that Junaid had a lot to say about who he’d AXE from the show when we caught up with him recently.

TOWIE bosses often wield the axe at the end of a series; Mia Sully and Hannah Voyan were given the boot at the end of series 30. Prior to that, a whopping ten cast members including Clelia Theodorou and Kelsey Stratford were axed in 2021 – although a number of those, like Harry Derbidge, have since returned to the show.

When asked if there were any current cast members he’d axe, it’s no surprise that Junaid name-dropped his on-screen enemies.

“As much as I say we’re a diverse cast and the best cast ever, I would straight up axe Courtney, Chloe and Amber. Courtney and Chloe bring nothing to the show and never have done for the last ten years,” he told us.

Remember when he alledgedly called them "scum and scummier" by the pool in Thailand? Ouch.

But despite his savage words, Junaid admitted that the show has “a great cast”. He said, “Different personalities, different dynamics. I do think the cast does fit really well.”

Ella added, “I’m loving the way everyone’s going down all these different avenues, like the way [Junaid] has become friends with Chloe Brockett.

“I’m loving that for you and I’m loving that for everyone else in the group. Okay, it might be a little bit awkward for me, but you’re helping me during that because you’re discovering me in different scenarios I’d never be in where we do have to be around each other. I would not want to cut anyone in the cast.”
