TOWIE is back, and it’s better than ever! If you missed last night’s episode, here’s a quick summary of all the latest drama! Enjoy!

Lydia, her mum Debbie and Joey head to a car boot sale for the day – Joey has to be told that no, car boot sales do not  in fact only sell Ugg Boots – but he quickly perks up when Lydia helps him find a pair of painfully tight-looking vintage jeans.

Harry’s brother Ronnie is introduced as a new character, but he hasn’t really said much yet – just mumbled “you know I don’t have a problem with you being gay, don’t you?” ahhh, how lovely!

The rest of Essex have gone fitness crazy! Mark attempted yoga to keep his mind off his self-imposed celibacy, only to find that the yoga class was packed with amazingly hot women! “Everywhere I looked there were boobs, bums and more bums!” He wailed.

We wish we looked like those perfectly styled girls! When we do yoga, you’re more likely to find us in a baggy old t-shirt and scruffy shorts – with a sweaty, red face to boot! Still, this is Essex … where apparently even the gym is treated like a catwalk!

Meanwhile, Dino, Arg and Gemma head out to the park for some training, but seem to be doing more shuffling on the spot that actual exercise. As they pretend to do a few press-ups, Lucy and new boyfriend Mario run past – clad in skimpy gym wear, obvs. “Do you think we’ll ever be as skinny as Lucy?” sighed Gemma.

Well we think Gem looks amazing as she is! So did Mick clearly, when she met up with him to discuss holding a ‘singles night’ at the Sugar Hut – his eyes nearly popped out his head! Serves you right for passing over Ms Collins when you had the chance Mick!

It’s a good think our Gem is over Mick though – because Maria (Who Kirk famously called an ‘extra’ last series) seems keen to get her claws in! “Would you be Kirk’s mummy then?” smirked Mick. Ugh, creepy.

Joey didn’t have much luck at Gemma’s singles night though – mostly due to the fact his new car-boot sale vintage jeans were a little tighter than even he was comfortable with. “Are you alright? You keep touching yourself?” asked one concerned girl!

Lydia and Arg went for a romantic meal while all this single-mingling was going on – only for Mark to crash the date because he was ‘feeling lonely’. Arg found it hilarious, Lydia – not so much. We don’t blame her!

SO, now you’re up to date – what do you think of the latest goings-on? We’re loving all the new characters, and think this is the best series yet!

‘The Bachelor’ UK Episode 2: “I’m deeply in love with him already”

Episode 2 of The Bachelor aired on Friday night – as 25 girls continue on the ‘quest of a lifetime’ to snare Gavin Henson as a life partner. They’ve got just 10 weeks to win his heart, so the competition is on! Things got off to a flying start, with eight of the girls taking […]

Episode 2 of The Bachelor aired on Friday night – as 25 girls continue on the ‘quest of a lifetime’ to snare Gavin Henson as a life partner. They’ve got just 10 weeks to win his heart, so the competition is on!

Things got off to a flying start, with eight of the girls taking on a zip-wire suspended over a terrifying drop, that had even Gavin admitting he was scared. In fact, Gav revealed that he doesn’t like heights at all – ‘I sometimes get an urge to jump’ he admitted. We don’t blame him – some of the girls on the show would have us hurling ourselves off the nearest cliff too.

Ok, so there are some genuinely nice women in the competition. Leila – who got to ride the zip-wire with Gavin and clung to him a little tighter than was needed (well you would, wouldn’t you?) – seems sweet, as does Nikki, who revealed to Gavin that she has a 2-year-old son, and got a rose keeping her in the competition for her efforts.

However a majority of the girls range from bunny-boiler to scary to just plain bitchy! Alleyah and Carrie are shown having a conversation that would probably have Gav running back to Wales as fast as his permatanned legs could carry him, had he heard it.

While Carrie admitted she’s ‘deeply in love’ with the rugby star (she’s known him for THREE days!) Alleyah breathlessly told the cameras that she wants him to be her ‘baby daddy’. Girls! Get a grip!

As for Carianne – you know, the one who sounds like she’s inhaled a roomful of helium balloons – well, she just doesn’t have a nice word to say. “I’ve nicknamed Ola ‘Ogre’ and Leila ‘troll’” she sniggered. What does that make you then Carianne? Hamster?

The next date was a beachwear photoshoot – which was basically an excuse for six of the girls to get half naked and drape themselves over Gavin. While stroking his impressive abs. Laura did nothing to contradict her ‘terrifying pyscho’ image, as she tied Gav to a chair and posed over him with a whip.

The rest of the girls took a more ‘traditional’ route, taking turns in welding themselves to Gavin’s side and pulling pouty poses – while the others glared from the sidelines.

The big news of this episode is that we witnessed not one, but TWO first kisses, as Georgie and Nikki got up close and personal with Mr. Henson… Ok, so they were more pecks on the lips than full on snogs, but if this is only the second episode – who knows what’s in store for the rest of the series!

Finally it was time to say goodbye to Alleyah and Vicky, who failed to connect with The Bachelor. Looks like Alleyah hasn’t found her ‘baby daddy’ just yet then! Who do you think will win Gavin’s heart? Keep tuning in every Friday on Channel 5 to find out. We know we will! xxx
