The 20-year-old newcomer to the ITVBe reality show has addressed the rumours speculating that some of the original 'TOWIE' characters, including Mark - who appeared in the first three series of the show from 2010 to 2012 - his ex-girlfriend Lauren Goodger and Sam Faiers, could be returning to the long-running show for the anniversary episode next year.

According to the Essex hunk, ITV producers have remained tight-lipped about their plans for the much-anticipated programme and instead are concentrating on plans for Series 25 of the show.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Jayden said: "No we don't get told about it. I think we're having meetings about the next series over the next few weeks so we'll see everyone then and speak about that."

Jayden went on to admit the upcoming series of 'TOWIE' will feature lots of "drama" and see new relationships "blossom", following ITV chiefs axing ten former cast members - including Kady McDermott, Dean Ralph, Jordan Wright and Yazmin Oukhellou - to make room for fresh faces earlier this year.

He added: "Lots of drama always, obviously relationships that you'll see blossom. We're in a transition where a lot of freshness is getting brought into it, obviously we've had a cast overhaul the last series and a lot of us younger people are new to the screens.

"Myself, you didn't see loads of my personality last series but you'll see what's happened over our summers and put the dots together."

Jayden will be a guest on the 'Celeb Bri Tea On The Bus' tour, alongside his 'TOWIE' co-star Harry Lee, former 'EastEnders' villain 'Nasty Nick' John Altman, Bobby Davro, Gogglebox's Sandra Martin and 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' contestant Lady Colin Campbell.

The tour allows fans to have afternoon tea on a bus with their favourite celebrities, and Jayden is excited to get to work with the rest of the TV stars involved.

He said: "Basically it's a tour that will have a few celebrities on a bus, and spectators are going to interview us and it's going to be a nice friendly environment and it gives fans an opportunity to experience it. I like meeting people from other people from the industry, my friends that aren't on shows can't relate to it because it doesn't always seem real, but it is. It affects you in daily life and your mindset and so on."
