TOWIE star Bobby Cole Norris' next journey to Marbella will be a lot more fun after he conquered his fear of flying over the weekend.

Like many others in the world, the Essex favourite has been terrified of boarding planes since childhood, meaning those holidays in the sunshine haven't always had the most pleasant of starts.

He looks so proud, doesn't he?!

But now, the bubbly star says his life has been "changed" after successfully completing classes that taught him about how to face his fears of flying.

And it's just in time for the TOWIE gang's annual trip to Marbella!

Bobby took part in easyJet's Fearless Flyer course, which has two parts. First, participants are taught strategies and techniques on the ground for facing their fears, as well as being given explanations for every noise, bump or the like they might hear on a plane. The following day they take to the skies to put those skills into practice.

"I feel so e-mosh," Bobby admitted. "I can honestly say that this course has changed my life."

He added on Twitter: "All ready for Marbs. Thank you."

TOWIE wrapped its eleventh series earlier this month but will return to ITV2 for another two seasons before the end of the year.

A rep for TOWIE has confirmed to Reveal that the opening of series twelve will be filmed in Marbella, one of the Essex gang's fave sunshine haunting grounds.

Bobby's co-star James 'Arg' Argent added in an interview with BBC Radio 2: "We're filming the next series in Marbella, so I'm presuming there's going to be a lot of pool party scenes with my top off. I don't want to end up looking like a beach whale so fingers crossed in about six weeks time I'll be nice and healthy and all tanned up in Marbella!"
