obby Norris hopes "The Only Way is Essex" lasts for 50 years.
The 31-year-old star has been on the ITVBe programme since 2012 and believes it could last just as long as "Coronation Street" because the cast feel like it is more like a soap than a reality show now.
Speaking on ITV's "This Morning" on Friday (23.03.18), Bobby said: "I've done six-and-a-half years on the show and I still love it, I feel like I want to be on there till the very last show.
"I hope it goes on for like 50 years like "Coronation Street".
"In the early days it felt like a slightly different show, whereas now it feels like a living soap, more real."
Bobby - who is best mates with long-time star Gemma Collins - has teased that the new series set in Barcelona will bring the "drama", and that the two new male stars will "ruffle a few feathers" when they make their "Towie" debuts.
Speaking about the new members, Bobby revealed: "We've got four new arrivals, two new girls and two new boys.
"I think it is safe to say that the boys especially have come in and ruffled a few feathers.
"I know we say it every series, but "Towie" we are an episode and a half into the can and I feel like we are already ticking every box.
"We've got drama, comedy, friendship fall-outs, maybe some relationship agg.
"We've literally got everything in the bag in the first episode alone."
The cast usually jet off to a luxury beachside resort in Marbella for the annual getaway, but this time they went to the Spanish city to get acquainted with the culture.
The 22nd episode will see the likes of Gemma Collins spend three days, between March 12 and March 14, in the city known for its stunning architecture and art.
However, there promises to be just as much drama in Barcelona as in Marbella, where things usually get pretty heated after the cast get boozed up on the Costa Del Sol.
