As TOWIE gets set to return to our screens, Reveal relives all the make ups, break ups and Essex drama from series 13.

Next week, our Essex faves return to our screens for the TOWIE Christmas special: The Only Way Is Essexmas, so it only seems right that we remind ourselves of everything that went down last series.

Always jam-packed with drama, we saw tears as our couples headed for splitsville, we saw tantrums as many co-stars came to blows and we saw romance as TOWIE newcomer Tommy Mallet wasted no time in wooing his now girlfriend Georgia Kousoulou.

Here's where we left off...

TOWIE's Jessica Wright breaks down in tears while meeting Ricky Rayment for dinner after their split. Episode airing 5 November 2014.


Jessica Wright and Ricky Rayment

After a two and a half year relationship, Jess finally gave Ricky the boot when she found flirty tweets he had sent to another girl.

With Ricky branding Jess boring, and both their families getting involved, it wasn't long before their break up soon turned bitter. But, making sure to clear the air before going their separate ways for good, the pair came face-to-face following their split to give back everything belonging to each other.

Then, skipping Bobby's charity do, Ricky missed out on the TOWIE boys stripping off as he jetted off to Florida instead to clear his head.

Heading overseas too, Jess said she was planning on just enjoying herself following their split and jetted off to Dubai with pal Billie Faiers and her sister Sam.

TOWIE's Chloe Sims cries after meeting with Elliott Wright at bonfire night party, episode airing 5 November 2014


Chloe Sims and Elliott Wright

Everyone thought they were Essex's hot new couple, but last series it was the end of the road for Chloe and El. Following a bumpy trip to Ibiza, Chloe told Elliott she needed some space after their relationship had made her feel less independent.

After Elliott then criticised Chloe for giving him mixed signals, viewers found out that he had let a girl stay in his bed while he was with Chloe - prompting her decision to split.

Despite spending the night with each other while on a break, Chloe later told Elliott there was no hope for the pair in the future.

Fran Parman and James 'Diags' Bennewith

Fran and Diags always seem so loved-up on the show, so it came as a surprise when Fran revealed she had found pictures of a girl in underwear on her boyfriend's phone.

While it looked like their relationship may be hitting the rocks, Diags told Fran the photo was from before he had even met her - he just forgot to delete it - and soon things were all rosy again.

TOWIE's Dan Osborne speaks to Georgia Kousoulou about their flirting - 8 Oct 2014


Dan Osborne and Georgia

Speaking of naked pictures, Georgia revealed Dan had sent her a picture of his private bits while away in Ibiza. Insisting his saucy snap had been taken the wrong way, Dan said he hadn't meant anything by it and that he thinks of his co-star as a really good friend, nothing more.

Although, he did seem a little peeved to hear newbie Tommy had set his sights on Georgia...

Tommy Mallet and Georgia Kousoulou make it official, 2 November 2014


Tommy and Georgia

After getting close out in Ibiza, the pair soon struck up a romance - despite Georgia's friends warning her away from 'player' Tommy.

Back in Essex, the pair's relationship went from strength to strength, and Tommy even made things official by asking Georgia to be his girlfriend at the Halloween Party.

How cute was his pumpkin display?!

The Only Way is Essex's Jasmin Walia dispute with Tommy and Georgia.
Episode aired on 19 Oct 2014


Jasmin Walia

Jasmin had a fairly drama free series, asides from a little run in with TOWIE's newest couple. After warning Georgia away from her beau, Tommy claimed that Jasmin had asked him "Who are you going to f*** next?". While the Essex beauty insisted she was only looking out for her pal, Georgia wasn't left too impressed.

However, the girls' fallout didn't last long and they were back to being BFFs at Jasmin's Diwali party.

Bobby Norris

Like Jasmin, Bobs mainly had a stress free series, but he still managed to shock with his latest swimwear attire.

Taking to the beach in Ibiza, the reality star revealed he would do anything for a tan and he wasn't joking.... introducing, Bobby's Ball Bag.

With just a piece of silver foil to cover his modesty, Bobby made sure he headed back to Essex bronzed all over.

Danielle Armstrong and James Lock

Dani shocked viewers when she revealed early on in the series that she'd had a miscarriage. Determined to move forward, she and James then opted to see a relationship counsellor to work on their romance.

With James opening up more and Dani being more trusting, it seemed as if the pair were back on track. And, treating James to a saucy strip tease, Dani hoped stocking up on some sexy lingerie would spice things up in the bedroom!

TOWIE preview: Lewis Bloor attempts to make amends with Lauren and Vas over his recent behaviour.
Airs: Wednesday 15 October 2014.


Lauren Pope and Lewis Bloor

Series 13 didn't start well for Lauren as she found out boyfriend at-the-time Lewis had cheated on her. Lauren then confronted Lewis about the claims, and things soon turned nasty as the Essex boy slammed Lauren for her age.

He blasted: "You're double the age of a 16 year-old, probably plus. Go and get your passport, lets see how old you are. Who wants to go out with a f**king 40-year-old anyway."


And, Lauren wasn't the only girl he upset last series as back home in Essex, Lewis then found himself in a personal feud with Fran that still hasn't really been resolved!

Luckily for Lauren though, things only got better for her and she even reunited with BFF Chloe.

After months of not speaking, the girls finally patched up their differences and began to work on reforming their friendship.

About time too!

TOWIE's Gemma Collins leaves Essex for I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! 13 Nov 2014


Gemma Collins

We never thought we'd see the day, but G.C left Essex at the end of the series to try her hand in the jungle for I'm A Celebrity.

But not without one last showdown - of course!

Following a rally of insults, Gemma found herself falling out with Ferne McCann just before her departure. With their friendship looking like it was well and truly over, Gemma - wanting to clear the air before she left - handed Ferne an olive branch before sneaking out to head Down Under.

And while it was announced Gemma would be missing The Only Way Is Essexmas, it seems Gem will be back for the TOWIE Christmas special after all - thanks to her early exit from the jungle.

Mario Falcone

Finally, Italian Lothario Mario made his TOWIE return. And, while he kept his head down through most of the series, in a TOWIE finale bombshell, Jess, Lauren and Chloe all revealed Mario had been flirting with each and every one of them.

But, not happy with his co-stars' claims, Mario soon hit back at the girls after seeing the finale back.

Oooh something tells us Mario won't be holding his tongue when they're all reunited!!
