TOWIE's Georgia Kousoulou has teased a potential romance with newcomer Tommy Mallet.

Tommy joined the cast a few weeks ago while they were filming in Ibiza for the brand new 13th series, but as a regular on the Essex scene, he already knows most of the cast.

"I know Tommy quite well," Georgia exclusively tells Reveal. "We started talking before he came on the show and I didn't actually know he was coming on. It was good, we just got close and we got on really well."

So could there be a blossoming romance in the very near future?

"Romance? We'll have to see on that one," she continues. "If he behaves himself then maybe one day."

Pictures emerged of Tommy partying with Georgia and her co-star Lydia Bright on the White Isle, already making him quite the ladies' man.

"We were all hanging around in a massive group and we really enjoyed ourselves," Georgia continues. "Tommy's a lovely boy and I do really get on with him. He's attractive and he's got such a good personality. He's really funny and he's so bubbly and that is kind of my type. I think time will tell."

Tommy, 22, who is best pals with James Arg Argent and Lewis Bloor, has even been dubbed the "Patrick Swayze of Essex", so what can viewers expect of him?

"He knows a lot of the current cast. He's a typical Essex boy," says Lydia. "I think at the beginning people are going to dislike him because he's so overpowering but when people get used to him they'll love him. Tommy gets on really well with the boys."

"He's one of those people from the area who I've always thought, 'I can't believe you're NOT on the show already'," says Billie Faiers.

"I think people are either going to love him or hate him," reveals Ferne McCann. "He'll definitely bring something different to she show."

TOWIE returns with The Only Way is Ibiza on Wednesday 8 October at 9pm, exclusively on ITVBe.
