But we've saved one last announcement for you! TOWIE's Dan Osborne will be joining the line up in the major role of Genie, using his phenomenal cosmic powers to grant wishes and change the world.

Dan Osborne is a former professional model, turned reality TV star who joined the hit ITV show The Only Way is Essex in May 2013 for Series 8 of the show. Due to his boyish good lucks, muscular physique and personal charm with the ladies, Dan quickly established himself a firm favourite.
