Bobby Cole Norris has said he loves hearing both positive and negative feedback from TOWIE fans.

Ahead of the show's 17th series starting this weekend, the Essex star said he welcomed all sort of feedback from viewers of the ITVBe programme, even if he's sometimes worried about how scenes will play out on TV.

Bobby said: "The reaction can be negative but I love the power of social media and it's changed the way we all watch TV. Whether it's positive or negative I like to see what the viewers think."

He said the scenes that have caused the most viewer feedback for him are his OTT swimwear or the argument with Gemma Collins by the pool, where he ended up "wearing Sauvignon Blanc."

"Definitely after that GC scene I was dreading what the reaction would be."

As for the scene that defines him, he said it was organising the charity ball for Anthony Nolan, after learning that his mother had been diagnosed with leukaemia.

"It was for a great cause close to my heart," he explained. "All the cast were together."

TOWIE returns to ITVBe for its 17th series on Sunday at 10pm.
