We've been missing TOWIE since it left our screens in April, but Gemma Collins has now revealed filming is back on!

Tweeting earlier this morning, Gemma has excited fans by revealing she was back to filming today. Woohoo! Ahead of their trip to Marbella, the TOWIE gang are reuniting to film scenes before they fly off. And the bubbly blonde was clearly excited to get back in front of the cameras and see her Essex pals.

Series 12 will kick off with a Marbella special, following our TOWIE favourites as they head back to the party resort. And as the cast film their catch up scenes before they jet off, there's no doubt they will have plenty to talk about.

The TOWIE gang head to Marbella to kick off series 12.

From Lockie's cheating, to the Wrights taking on the Rayments, Lewis and Elliot's knockabout in the ring and Chloe and Popey's big fall out - last series was jam packed with plenty of tears, drama, make-ups and break-ups.

Not least forgetting the return of 'blast from the past' Lydia Bright!

Lydia shocked her fellow cast-members, especially ex-boyfriend Arg, when she made her TOWIE return last series.

Viewers last saw Lydia shock her fellow co-stars as she made her grand entrance in the season finale. And seeing a nervous Arg get in a fluster over his ex's arrival, an emotional Gemma couldn't help but get upset.

After revealing she was still in love with Arg with no reciprocation, the 33-year-old was in tears as Arg went on to tell Lydia how much he had missed her.

An emotional Gemma is comforted by pal Jess Wright as she gets upset over Lydia's return.

With the cast about to embark on holiday with last series shenanigans still fresh in their minds, we can't wait to see how the drama unravels overseas.

Starting with two one-hour specials in Marbella, the TOWIE cast will be returning to our screens on Sunday 22 June.

And with another familiar face returning in series 12, this series is bound to be just as exciting as the last!
