Former Miss Great Britain Shelby Tribble has joined the cast of TOWIE for the ITVBe show’s upcoming season.
The beauty queen, 25, has already been romantically linked to series regular Pete Wicks, 29, and producers were keen to bring her on board as she ‘fits in perfectly’ with the existing cast.
Speaking to The Sun, a TV Insider said: ‘Shelby is absolutely gorgeous and fits in perfectly with the cast.
‘She’s already very well-known on the Essex scene after living there for years – but is originally from Plymouth.’
The source added: ‘In recent weeks she’s been getting close to Pete, and mutual pals of the pair predict their romance will be filmed for the new series.’
