Charlie King is reportedly considering a return to The Only Way Is Essex in a bid to help his ex-girlfriend Gemma Collins.
The personal trainer, who has since come out as gay, left the ITVBe reality show in 2013 to launch a fitness business.
He is still on good terms with his former co-stars and is now said to be considering a comeback.
A source told The Sun: “Charlie has big plans with his personal training business and is in talks with TOWIE to make a return.
“He still has a great relationship with the cast. They would love to welcome him back.”
It is thought Charlie and his ex Gemma could work together as she continues to try and lost weight.
The source added: “There will be no awkwardness between exes Charlie and Gemma.
“There are no hard feelings and Gemma will be thankful for his support as she continues her weight loss mission.”
