The circus performer, 26, has made cameo appearances in the ITVBe show alongside Nathan in the past few months but according to a new report, bosses are eager to snap her up as a solo cast member.
“Cara is expected to sign on the dotted line – she has got lots to say and Towie bosses know that fans are really interested in her relationship with Nathan and their split,” said a source.
The insider added to The Sun : “Everyone is desperate to find out the real reason why she split with Nathan and by joining the show, she promises to reveal just that.”
Mirror Celebs has contacted TOWIE reps for comment.
Cara and Nathan met on last summer’s Love Island , which they won, and had moved in together in Nathan’s native Essex. They had been expected to celebrate their first anniversary next month before their shock split.
They confirmed their break up on Twitter earlier this month.
“Me and Cara have split, we’ve had the best summer of our lives but it’s been a tough few weeks and wish her the best of luck for the future,” said Nathan.
Cara added: “Me & Nath have split. Sometimes love just isn’t enough, but what will be will be. Thank you for everyone’s support lately.”
TOWIE viewers were left ‘heartbroken’ for Nathan as he revealed on the last episode he wasn’t eating or sleeping after his split from Cara.
Speaking to his pals Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet, Nathan admitted he was not coping well with the break-up as they sat down for dinner at a Chinese restaurant.
Putting on a brave face he said: “It’s completely over now. Sadly. We were just under each other’s feet too much.
“The littlest thing would spark a massive argument. I just thought to myself, ‘Where’s this going?'”
Nathan confessed to wanting a relationship like Georgia and Tommy, who have managed to get over rocky patches in their relationship.
He continued: “I’m not saying it’s her, I’m not saying it’s me.
“It’s just brought me down a lot. My friends have seen it and I think she’s the same.
“It’s sad but I don’t resent her. I hope she doesn’t resent me for anything.”
Tommy admitted he was “gutted” but had some words of wisdom for his friend, who appeared on the reality show for the first time without Cara.
He said: “You’ve got to try and make yourself happy first, have time out, have a Chinese first.”
Nathan claimed he “hadn’t eaten for a few days” and when asked if he was sleeping said “not really”.
Viewers took to twitter to air their disappointment that the couple had split.
One viewer said: “@NathanMassey_ aw is breaking my heart #TOWIE”
Another added: “Naaaaaaaawwwwe naaaathhhhhaaaannnnnn u so cute #towie #getbackwithcara #stopmakingitsocomplicated @Miss_Delahoyde”
A thirds said: “So gutted Nathan and Cara have finished #TOWIE”
