Gemma Collins to return to The Only Way is Essex?
Bobby Norris thinks Gemma Collins will "definitely rock up" in another series of 'The Only Way is Essex' before the end of the year.
The handsome star was distraught when his best friend announced she was bowing out of the show for good earlier this year but he believes her appearance in the last installment won't be the last and she'll probably turn up for a couple of episodes over the next few months.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Bobby said: "I think with Gem, never say never. I reckon she'll definitely rock up. Maybe next series, maybe Christmas, I'm sure she'll do a cheeky scene."
The 30-year-old hunk believes there's a little more freedom when it comes to the show now as producers allow people to go off and do other things for a while before allowing cast mates to return for a few sporadic episodes.
He explained: "I think that's the beauty of it now, cast members can come and go and she doesn't have the full on aspect where she has to be a full time cast mate. She can dip in and out when it suits her."
And Gemma isn't the only former cast member to make a return as Lauren Goodger - who bowed out in 2012 before making an appearance last year and then again in April this year - has announced that she will be rejoining the programme later this month.
She said recently: "I will be back next series. I said I'd love to come back as Lauren. I've always been in a relationship or had drama. I can be one of the girls. There's a load of things I can do."
