Ferne McCann, Lydia Bright & Danielle Armstrong have headed to France for this year's TOWIE Christmas special.

Last week, Reveal confirmed The Only Way Is Essexmas is set to hit our screens on 10 December and making sure it's a show to remember the gang have headed overseas... again.

First there was Marbs, then there was Ibiza and now, it seems the TOWIE girls will be injecting a little Essex glamour into France.

Making their way across the Channel for some festive fun, Ferne couldn't resist the chance to reenact a scene from the movie Titanic with Danielle.

Move over Jack and Rose... Ferne and Danni are in town.

Sharing a photo of herself and her pal mimicking the movie's iconic pose, Ferne said: "Day 24 #100daysofhappiness to France #towie #christmas special Me & my babes @daniellearmstrong88 channelling Rose&Jack on the ferry."

On arrival, the gang then wasted no time in getting their hands on plenty of Christmas treats before they have to turn around and head home.

Equipped with baskets full of red wine and cheese, it seems Lydia and Ferne were a little sidetracked from filming as they stocked up on local delicacies.

And not being able to resist showing off her goodies, Lydia shared a photo of herself and her co-star with their purchases on Instagram.

Captioning her photo, she said: "Day 33. Being in France the country of fine wine and amazing cheese. Can't wait to stuff my face tonight #100daysofhappiness #SodTheDiet #WhenInFrance."

But one person who sadly missed out on all the fun (and the wine and cheese!) was the girls' co-star Jessica Wright.

Jess had to miss the trip to France due to falling ill after her holiday to Dubai.

After recently returning from a holiday in Dubai with Sam and Billie Faiers, Jess has been struck down with the flu.

Cancelling all working commitments and the filming she had planned, Jess has been forced to rest up at home. But even though she couldn't be there, the 29-year-old still told her pals to have lots of fun.

She tweeted: "@Daniarmstrong88 @fernemccann @LydiaRoseBright so gutted I couldn't come girls in bed getting lots of rest dosing up have fun xx."

Fingers crossed she gets better before filming wraps!

Meanwhile back in Essex, Lauren Pope, Mario Falcone and James Lock were also spotted filming while hunting for Christmas trees.

Their reunion comes after Lauren, Jess and Chloe Sims all claimed Mario had been flirting with them last series - something the Italian Lothario denied.


Sounds like Lauren and Mario's latest meeting could have been an awkward one, then...

The Only Way Is Essexmas will air on 10 December at 10pm on ITVBe.
