The new series of TOWIE has only just started so here's everything you need to know about one of the newest cast members Saffron Lempriere.

Who is Saffron Lempriere?

Saffron Lempriere is a reality TV star, known notably for her time featured on TOWIE.

When did Saffron Lempriere join TOWIE?

The reality star first joined TOWIE in 2018 but she had previously appeared on former BFF Gemma Collins' show Diva Espana.

It also turns out that Saffron was already friends with some TOWIE stars before her stint on the show. As well as Gemma, Saffron was also pretty close pals with Kate Ferdinand and they still appear to be on good terms.

How old is Saffron Lempriere?

Saffron is 28 years old and her birthday is the 3rd June.

Are Saffron Lempriere and Gemma Collins still friends?

The short answer - nope, they're not still friends.

Saffron joined TOWIE as Gemma's friends but after their row, The GC ventured onto her own projects including her reality show Gemma Collins: Diva Forever & Ever. Meanwhile Saffron's stayed put on TOWIE.

Why are Saffron and Gemma Collins no longer talking?

To this day, it's all still rather mysterious why the once inseparable pals parted ways and no longer speak. However, there are a few puzzle pieces to help us understand.

It all began last year when Saffron admitted they'd fallen out but went on to say, "I wish her all the happiness". Shortly after she hinted that it was during lockdown that helped her realise who her "true friends" are.

And although Saffron admitted they 'were like sisters', she went on to say that she won't discuss the reasons behind their separation.

Then, earlier this year, Saffron answered fans questions during an Instagram Q&A. One of the questions was, "You've always been friends with Gemma Collins x."

Her response made it clear that they'd fallen out when Saff said, "8 years was enough."

She then went on to imply that the reason behind their huge fall out was because of The GC. One fan sent in a message that read, "Gemma was the cause of your friendship ending? She seems to lose friends a lot".

And Saffron replied, "Facts".

The drama didn't stop there though because following Gemma's appearance on Piers Morgan's Life Stories, Saffron and Charlotte Crosby both publicly slammed her.

Does Saffron Lempriere have children?

She never mentioned having children but during the first episode of season 28 she described her dog as her "child".

However later on, during a conversation with Amy Childs and Bobby Norris she said, "I'm 30, I'm 28, I've got two children".

TOWIE viewers were quick to pick up on what she said, with one person tweeting, "Didn't know Saffron had kids?? #TOWIE".

Another wrote, "Saffron has kids? Never knew that! #TOWIE".

However Saff was actually talking about Amy Childs being 30 with two children.

There's no better place to start than the birth of the 'vajazzle', a crystal encrusted pattern that can be applied to a woman's nether regions to make their bits looks fancy and elegant. Beaut babe. After Amy Childs and Sam Faiers filmed this scene and it had aired, this was the only thing the nation was talking about, with salons across the country starting to offer the beauty treatment so fans of the show could replicate their idols and be a true Essex women.

What happened with Saffron Lempriere and Chloe Brockett?

They were once best pals but after Saffron confronted Chloe B about her flirty conversation with**** Harry Lee, it all kicked off.

They had a screaming row in the street that resulted in Chloe chucking her umbrella on the floor.

Very dramatic.

The Only Way is Essex, aka TOWIE, is where many of our favourite British TV stars made their way into the world of showbiz, from Joey Essex and Lauren Goodger, to James Argent and of course TV gold Gemma Collins.

TOWIE stardom is quite the mercurial monster; you can find yourself instantly loved by the public, delivering quality storylines, and earning extra screen-time. And before you know it, you find yourself plunging into the glamorous world of deals with beauty and fashion brands, VIP invites to exclusive clubs and events, and being papped by the paparazzi whilst arriving at your favourite spot to eat.

But one wrong move and it's game over for your success. You can just as quickly lose your recognition, and you're soon shown the exit from the show... Ouch.

Luckily Saffron is still on the show and here's hoping she's here to stay.
