Kate Wright is preparing to make her TOWIE debut when the reality show returns to our sceens, but before she does, here's seven things you need to know about her...

Earlier this week, it was confirmed Kate was joining the TOWIE cast. She along with her good friend, Michael Hassini, will be making their mark on the Essex scene and no doubt causing a bit of a stir out in Marbs.

So far, we already know that Kate is Dan Edgar's ex-girlfriend and she was left heartbroken when the pair split earlier this year. They had dated for four years before, she claims, Dan dumped her out of the blue. But what else do we need to know about the blonde-haired beauty?

In a new clip posted to the official TOWIE website, James Diags Bennewith gets to know his new co-star in sixty seconds. Asking her all the essentials, here's what we found out...

Name: Katie Wright (otherwise known as Kate).

Age: 24 years old.

Occupation: She works in a bank.

Relationship status: Single. Kate declared: "I'm very much single!"

Essex faces she already knew: Dan Edgar (obvs), his best mate Diags, Lewis Bloor, Danielle Armstrong, Ferne McCann and Tommy Mallet.

She's got her eye on: Diags - although we think she was saying that just to entertain him... (He is actually very much loved-up with Fran Parman).

She's hoping to avoid: Dan for now - "That could all change, he's got to graft."

And actually avoiding Dan hasn't exactly gone to plan. When the cast headed to Funky Buddha, she came face-to-face with her ex-beau.

Pictures showed the former flames talking, but considering Dan made a move on Jess Wright just days after splitting with Kate, we're not sure it was on good terms.

He then dated Lauren Pope, kissing her during TOWIE's series finale, but that romance has since fizzled out. Will he try to rekindle things with Kate instead? If he does try, she has warned he has to work "incredibly hard".

As well as Dan, Kate has been bonding with Chloe Lewis, Georgia Kousoulou and Danielle. She even bumped into Lauren during a day at the beach, but it seems there were no hard feelings, as Kate was all smiles when greeted by her co-star.

TOWIE returns to ITVBe on Sunday 4 October.
