The Only Way Is Essex's Harry Derbidge won't be flying to Ibiza with the rest of the cast, according to sources.

Harry made his TOWIE comeback following a three-year hiatus in June but it seems he may not be starring in the series 13 special.

The stars of the show are jetting out to the White Isle to film a double-episode opener, similar to the previous Marbs and Vegas shows, however Harry could be left behind.

A source tells Reveal: "Although Harry returned for the last series, it looks like he hasn't made the cut for the Ibiza trip."

Harry is an original cast member, having starred alongside his cousin Amy Childs and good friend Sam Faiers in series one of the ITV2 reality show.

After leaving in 2011, Harry made a big comeback in the last series alongside his then-boyfriend Bobby Norris and they earned the nickname 'Barry'.

Their relationship was sadly doomed, however, and Bobby split with Harry after discovering he had slept with his ex-boyfriend behind his back.

Earlier today, it was reported that Harry has been dropped from the entire show. Luckily for fans though, there is still a good chance he will appear after the Ibiza special airs.

A TOWIE rep tells us: "Casting for the next series is yet to be confirmed but Harry is still very much in the mix."
