Jasmin said: "I'm really excited to be joining Desi Rascals. Since leaving the cast of TOWIE I have been very fortunate to receive numerous offers of work, and this is the opportunity I've been looking for that will allow me to explore my cultural roots whilst still maintaining all the glitz and glamour that I love.

"I'm having such an amazing time with Ross at the moment, and this next chapter promises to be even better, full of surprises and magical moments that I'm sure viewers will also enjoy sharing with us. Watch this space!"

Elsewhere, Solomon will have his eyes on the ladies, while Fahra will be on the lookout for Mr Wright.

Apprentice star Solomon has also joined Desi Rascals.

Jasmin joined TOWIE as a full-time cast member during series seven in 2012. She made a brief appearance in the first series back in 2010.

After three years, Jasmin left TOWIE in May after a mutual agreement with show producers that she would take a break from the show.

She later said she was frustrated by lack of storylines and hinted that producers didn't want her relationship with Ross to be played out on screen.

The series returns with originals Anj, Moses, Shmoyel, Owais, Rita, Yasmin, Jo and Nat.

Desi Rascals' new eight-part series airs on Sky 1 every Wednesday at 8pm from 22 July.
