TOWIE star Shelby Tribble has made a jibe against her former co-stars following the news that the ITV show is reducing screen time for a large number of them.
Shelby, 28, first appeared on the reality series in March 2018, but left with her partner Sam Mucklow in 2019.
Retweeting the TOWIE bosses’ announcement on her Twitter page, the mum-of-one teased: ”Karma really is a wonderful thing [laughter emoji]."
Since leaving the show, Shelby and Sam have gone on to have a baby boy called Abel and have said their relationship is much stronger now they’re away from the world of reality TV.
Neither are fans of the heady lifestyle and insist they’re much happier in their own little world as a three.
Shelby’s shocking swipe comes just as ITV are reported to have told the cast of the changes in the show’s format the evening before.
The shake-up will see a smaller number of core cast members become the main focus for the show, and will ensure that fans can follow them on a more intimate level – including being able to see more of their familial relationships and day to day at work.
A TOWIE spokesperson confirmed to OK!: “After more than 10 fabulous years following the lives of our ever-growing cast, TOWIE will be evolving with some changes.
“As it looks ahead to future series, focusing on a smaller group allows our cast more time to film their real lives.

“[And] showing more of their personal passions and professions, alongside their strong bonds and dynamics with family and friends.”
The show insisted the loss of some of the cast will be felt by all, but the individuals will always be “part of the TOWIE family” and make guest appearances throughout the show.
“Those who won’t appear regularly on screen next series will always be part of the TOWIE family and we wholeheartedly thank them for sharing their lives with us in recent years,” the statement finished.
In the official Instagram post, the show’s bosses added that the cast’s “wellbeing” is of “paramount importance” and the show will still offer welfare support if needed.
