Viewers will remember the action-packed series finale which saw Mario confess his true love to ex-girlfriend Lucy, despite the fact that he was dating Essex model Pascal at the time.
Italian tailor Mario told Lucy that the ball was in her court to decide if they have a future together.
However, Mario's declaration left Lucy confused, and as a result, she decided to put an end to her blossoming romance with Tom Pearce.
In Wednesday's episode (11 December) of the ITV2 reality show, the gang have a Christmas get-together at a lodge.
Dressed in festive jumpers and sitting at a table adorned with decorations, James 'Arg' Argent welcomes everyone before they enjoy their Christmas meal.
But there's a surprise in store, as Pascal arrives at the lodge, after being invited by Ferne McCann!
Pascal makes quite an entrance, leaving Lucy shocked, and sparks begin to fly as the two brunettes get embroiled in a heated debate.
It seems like James 'Diags' Bennewith gets stuck in the middle as the pair exchange words at the dinner table, but where is Mario in all of this?!
An unhappy Lucy also confronts Ferne about why she invited Pascal to the lodge in the first place.
Love is in the air for some though, as away from all the drama, Dan Osborne and Jasmin Walia go on a date!
The pair decide to try out their ice skating skills and team up with James Lock and his girlfriend Danielle Armstrong for some fun on the ice rink.
It looks set to be another dramatic episode with all the regulars, but show favourite Joey Essex will not be in the Christmas special because of his stint in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
Elsewhere, after the cast filmed the hour-long episode, a source exclusively told Reveal that Lucy would be taking a break from the show to "clear her head".
The Only Way is Essexmas airs on Wednesday 11 December at 10pm on ITV2
