Also out for the fifth season will be Connor Paolo, who played Eric Van Der Woodson, who has taken up a regular role on ABC’s Revenge. However, lead stars Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford will all be back and the fifth season will also guest star Elizabeth Hurley.

Gossip Girl returns to ITV2 on Wednesday 19th October at 8pm with Yes, Then Zero.
