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!

TOWIE Series 3 Episode 1: “You Look Like Cheryl Cole!”

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?

The Only Way Is Essex is set to return to our screens this Sunday – and we can’t wait!

The third series of the BAFTA award winning (yes, really!) show is set to be better than ever, as cameras follow the glamorous lives of the Essex gang.

However, we can’t help but notice that A LOT has happened since we left the likes of Mark, Lauren, Sam and Kirk at the end of last series…

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months and haven’t been able to follow the antics of the ‘reem’ crew in the press, here’s what you’ve missed!

  • Mark and Lauren bought a puppy, gave it the ridiculous name ‘Wrighty’ then broke off their engagement.
  • Kirk and Lauren ‘Popey’ Pope (Has anyone ever actually heard anyone call her Popey?) got matching nose jobs – how sweet, and then broke up – oh dear.
  • Amy decided TOWIE wasn’t quite enough for her, and quit for the dizzying heights of stardom that only Big Brother could bring.
  • Lucy has a hunky new boyfriend, who’s rumoured to be appearing on the show!
  • A newly slim line Gemma befriended Kate Moss (!) although sadly it has been confirmed that the model will NOT be appearing on the show.
  • Lydia and Arg got back together, and were even heard talking about marriage! So perhaps we will get a TOWIE wedding after all?
  • Oh, and Lauren posted a photo of herself kissing none other than Katie Price on twitter! Because one can never have enough publicity.

Phew! And all this happened over just one Summer! Those TOWIE stars just can’t stop creating drama!

We can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for us this series…with around 10 new characters – including Harry’s mum, a Barbara Windsor type – rumoured to be joining the hit show, we know that nothing will be able to stop us tuning in!

How about  you? Are you excited for the new series of TOWIE?
