TOWIE is back! If you missed Sunday night’s episode, here’s a quick run-down of all the latest from the hit show!
Mark and Lauren are still very much broken-up. Mark cried actual tears when talking about the split- shocker! No crying from Lauren though, who was focused on more practical matters – such as renaming her dog.
Lauren has also bonded with Other Lauren (we refuse to call her ‘Popey’ because it’s a made up nickname nobody ever uses) over the fact she’s also just split up with boyfriend Kirk. In fact, the pair are living together!
Lydia is following in the footsteps of Sam and opening a shop. From what we can gather, it will sell cupcakes and ‘trinkets’. Arg has already been warned that he won’t be allowed in unless under strict supervision – he has lost a stone after all!
Meanwhile both Gemma and Sam have died their hair brown. Sam looks drab, but Gem’s locks combined with her new slimmer figure look full-on fab! “You look like Cheryl Cole!” exclaimed Arg – We’re not sure what Chezza would make of that comparison!
This episode centred on the birthday party thrown by Jess Wright. Everybody was there … apart from Lucy, who’s new boyfriend dropped his towel in the hope his nakedness would persuade her to stay home, and away from her ex, Mark. It did.
The party was not as drama-filled as we would have liked, despite the numerous ex-couples that littered the room. Mark made a rather nice speech to Lauren about ‘always loving’ her, while Kirk ignored Other Lauren and had a confusing conversation with Joey about nicknames instead.
Oh how we’ve missed Joey Essex! After making some very short shorts from a pair of vintage jeans, the uber-groomed Essex lad revealed he thought vintage meant ‘New clothes just made to look old’ - and expressed horror when cousin Chloe informed him they had been worn by someone else previously. Reem!
Oh, and we should mention new kids on the block – identical twins Dino and Georgio. The pair seem set to produce some brilliant comedy value – they drink protein shakes, call their biceps ‘the swans’ and have already been spotted trying to pull!
So, now you’re up to date! We can’t wait for the next episode tomorrow night! What did you think of TOWIE’s return?
