TOWIE fans can look forward to an early Christmas treat, as the date for this year's Only Way Is Essexmas has been confirmed!

The cast of The Only Way Is Essex will be back on our screens for their annual festive episode on Wednesday 10 December this year - and we can't wait.

According to show bosses, the action will pick up from where things left off in series 13 - so no doubt there will be lots of laughter and some tears!

Fans watched several relationships crumble in the last series of the ITVBe reality show, including Chloe Sims and Elliott Wright's five-month romance.

Since the show went off air, Chloe has branded her ex Elliott "delusional" after he spoke out and claimed she is still "in love" with him.

Hmmm, what's the betting there's an argument between them both this Christmas?!

Elsewhere, Jessica Wright and Ricky Rayment also called time on their two-year relationship during the last series. Jess dumped Ricky after discovering he had messaged former X Factor 2013 contestant Lydia Lucy on Twitter and their split was far from amicable.

Will Gemma be back for Christmas?

Meanwhile, Gemma Collins left Essex behind to appear in this year's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! and it was initially confirmed she wouldn't be taking part in the TOWIE Christmas special for this reason.

However, now Gemma has quit the jungle after just three days, will she be back in time for the festivities?

We can't wait to find out!
