TOWIE fans had a dose of good news this morning when ITV2 announced the Essex reality show will return for its eleventh series in February, with another two series already commissioned for later in the year.
Fresh from her Celebrity Big Brother stint, Sam Faiers will be back, as will old favourites Mario Falcone, Jessica Wright, Gemma Collins and James 'Arg' Argent.
We're being promised plenty of drama and excitement because the TOWIE lot have been busy since we last saw them on our screens just before Christmas.
Sam's sister Billie Faiers announced earlier this month that she's expecting a baby with long-time boyfriend Greg. She's traditionally kept her private life away from the TOWIE screen. Will we see Greg on TV this time around?
Elsewhere, bubbly Gemma had a very special Christmas after boyfriend Rami Hawesh popped the question on Christmas Day. Then, in a shock, just a few weeks later we learned they ended their engagement and their relationship. Will we find out what exactly went wrong? Is there any hope for reconciliation?
It was a busy Christmas for Dan Osborne as well. Not only has he been training - and succeeding - in the Tom Daley diving show Splash!, but the hunky star became a first-time father on 23 December when his ex-girlfriend gave birth to son Teddy. Dan's thrilled his fans by uploading lots of photos of his adorable tot to Twitter. Will we actually see him on screen next month?
We've also been promised fireworks between Ferne McCann and Charlie Sims, who broke up (again) after the last series.
Also returning are Elliot Wright and Lewis Bloor, while it's also been teased there will be some "sexy new female arrivals" on the scene.
"We're thrilled that ITV have confirmed three series of TOWIE for 2014," said Derek McLean, head of non-scripted programming for Lime Pictures.
"The cast is forever growing and forever changing and the sustained viewing figures are testament that TOWIE can keep on entertaining."
TOWIE's eleventh series will air on ITV2 next month, starting with a 60-minute episode then eleven 45-minute shows airing Wednesday and Sunday nights.
Series twelve will air this summer, following by a thirteenth series in autumn.
