Ricky Raymant, the new Mark Wright?
Monday 23 January 2012
Mark Wright has already stolen the hearts of the nation’s young women with his charm, cute dimples and charisma, but will newcomer Ricky Raymant be able to sway the girls and top the cheeky Essex lads status as the new front-man for TOWIE?
Ricky Raymant – 21 – is also known as ‘The Captain’ and is said to be twice the ladies man of the ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’ runner up. He joins 12 other newcomers for series four of The Only Way is Essex which begins on Sunday, one of whom is Joey Essex’s best friend James Bennewith, aged 20.
James hopes that the ITV2 show will stand him in with a better chance with the ladies, alongside his good looking and fashion-conscious pal Joey; "I know I'm not the best-looking lad but if I had Joey's looks with my chat, I'd be unstoppable”.
Georgina Dorsett – friends with Rochelle from the Sats – is also one of the new TOWIE cast, but it is said that the property-business gal doesn’t know any of the other cast members and so producers have had to fit her in to the storylines.
The new series has also said goodbye to Maria Fowler and Harry Derbidge and it seems that most have the original TOWIE gang have moved on. Will Ricky Raymant shape up to TOWIEs trade Mark-Wright?
