The gang will soon be flying out to the Spanish island and we can't wait to see what drama will unfold.

The boys and girls have also been hitting the gym in a series of intense workouts ahead of their trip, so we're sure they'll be showing off their bodies at every opportunity!

This series is set to be pretty exciting with the return of Harry Derbidge, and of course, we can't wait to see Lydia Bright back on the show after her dramatic return at the end of the last series.

We won't be seeing Sam Faiers after she made an emotional farewell at the end of series 11, but she is expected to return for a few episodes when her pregnant sister Billie gives birth.

More recently, show favourite Mario Falcone told Reveal that he was going to leave the show, explaining that this could be his last series.
