Charlie King to rejoin The Only Way Is Essex?
Charlie King is in talks to return to 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The personal trainer appeared briefly on the show in 2013 when he struck up a relationship with Gemma Collins - before he later came out as gay on ITV's 'The Morning' in 2014 - and is now reportedly thinking of re-joining the cast of the reality show to help further his "personal training business".
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Charlie has big plans with his personal training business and in talks with 'TOWIE' to make a return.
"He still has a great relationship with the cast and they would love to welcome him back."
Charlie originally quit the show after his rows with best friend Bobby Norris were shown to the viewing public, but now he's reportedly hoping to use his personal training skills to help his ex-beau Gemma and James Argent to shed weight, as they have both admitted to struggling with weight loss in the past.
And show bosses are convinced there will be no "awkwardness" between the two exes, and say that Gemma will be "thankful" for Charlie's support during her "weight loss mission".
The source added: "There will be no awkwardness between exes Charlie and Gemma.
"There are no hard feelings and Gemma will be thankful for his support as she continues her weight loss mission."
And Gemma's continued weight loss goal comes as she recently lost almost a stone in just over four weeks after ditching brandies for slimline vodka, lime and soda.
Speaking previously, she said: "It's all about moderation. Where I used to think nothing of polishing off 15 brandies, nowadays I drink vodka and soda with fresh lime."
