TOWIE has released the first official cast photo for series 17… but have you noticed a few missing faces among the glamorous girls and guys posing up a storm?

The brand new series of the ITVBe show returns soon (not soon enough, though, cause we MISS IT!) and we're having rather a lot of fun pouring over this very Kardashian Christmas-esque image…

So, who is missing and who isn't?!

Where have you gone!?

Quit: Jessica Wright and Ferne McCann

Away: James 'Arg' Argent was off filming The Jump

Newbies: Chloe Meadows and Courtney Green are this year's newcomers to the cast but weren't present when the photo was taken. Same goes for Jon Clark and brother Chris.

No explanation: Where are Vas J Morgan and Fran Parman? A rep for the show told us Vas wasn't around for the photo but is still part of the cast, while Fran won't be filming this year.

Cameos: Gemma Collins has been filming scenes, while Amy Childs and Joey Essex are also rumoured to be returning for cameo appearances in honour of the 200th episode.
