The majority of the cast have already started filming for the show, but of course, fans won't be seeing Joey Essex because of his current stint in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, where he is hoping to be crowned king of the jungle.

Joey said at the time: "TOWIE is an amazing show to be part of and I love every minute of it, so it's a shame I'll miss the Christmas special, but going into the jungle is too good an opportunity to miss."

However, show favourites like Lucy Mecklenburgh, Mario Falcone, Jessica Wright and Sam Faiers will be back for some festive fun, and we're sure there's plenty of gossip to share!

TOWIE's tenth anniversary season kicked off in October with two hour-long episodes set in Las Vegas, before the gang returned to Essex.

Viewers were left with a cliffhanger in the series finale with Mario and Lucy

The Christmas special will pick up from the action packed series finale, which saw Joey bid farewell to ex fiancée Sam, and Mario confess his love to his ex-girlfriend Lucy, despite the fact that he was dating model Pascal Craymer!

Mario told Lucy that the ball is in her court to decide if they have a future together. Meanwhile, Lucy also decided to cool things off with Tom Pearce after admitting that she was confused over her true feelings for Mario. There was some love in the air though, as Ferne McCann and Charlie Sims reunited, giving their relationship a second chance.

We don't know what's going to happen in the Christmas special, but in Essex, nothing is unexpected!

Catch The Only Way is Essexmas on Wednesday 11 December at 10pm on ITV2.
