    TOWIE star Tommy Mallet has confirmed he will be returning to the show for a cameo.

    The reality star left the series two years ago alongside partner Georgia Kousoulou but is back briefly to support a pal of his.

    Tommy spoke exclusively to the Daily Star as he promoted Superdrug's Rise Up to Level Up campaign.

    Talking about his comeback, Tommy said: "I saw a friend who was in need and I came back to show for a scene.

    "I'm very proud of where I came from and I feel like if I get asked to do something, then I will.

    "I'm still mad tight with the people there, and if I can chip in and it helps, then I'll do it.

    "I did go back and do a little scene with a dear friend of mine and I loved every minute of it.

    "But I'm not rushing back though, definitely not."

    When asked if any wild scenes ever got cut during his time on the show – Tommy said it happened "all the time".

    He answered: "Yeah of course, every week, we filmed like f***ing 100 scenes and only three would be used.

    "There used to be 45 cast members on the show in an hour slot.

    "We used to have beef on Twitter about it and we'd say 'That scene was good and you've cut it. Why?'

    "Those days were good, I smile when I talk about it, my life was jokes for years when I was on TOWIE.

    "The funny stuff never really made it because the s*** that we spoke about was so mad."

    The star added: "I don't really look back on life, I only move forward, but I smile when I talk about that show – it was fantastic."

    This comes as Tommy fronts Superdrug’s Rise Up to Level Up campaign to raise awareness around the support needed for young people to gain valuable life skills through apprenticeships. Superdrug have pledged to employ 500 apprentices this academic year and have called for reform and greater flexibility of the Apprenticeship Levy.

    Successful business owner Tommy commented: “I am so proud that Superdrug asked me to be part of this campaign as this is an area that is close to my heart. With my ADHD and dyslexia, I didn’t have an easy ride at school and Ieft at 16 with no qualifications, before going on to try three different apprenticeships – so I really do have first-hand experience of how a supportive apprenticeship can lead you to the right path. It’s worrying to think that on receiving their GCSE results, many young people might be confused and unsure about what to do with their future, and left feeling like they may never be able to achieve their career aspirations.

    "An apprenticeship can give you such a solid start and a clear route for progression in a career. We need to make sure we’re putting these options in front of young people, bringing in as many apprentices as possible and providing the ongoing support for success within programmes.”
