Gemma and Ferne all smiles in France

In the finale episode, Gemma was seen making amends with Ferne at Bobby Norris' charity fundraiser and they concluded "Essex wouldn't be the same" without them being friends.

In this sneak peek picture of tomorrow night's Only Way Is Essexmas, Gemma and Ferne can be seen sharing a laugh in the kitchen of their holiday apartment in France.

Some of the TOWIE cast travelled across the Channel for the special episode and Gemma surprised them on the ferry, having returned from Australia early following her short-lived stint on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!.

But will these smiles last?

Both Ferne and Gemma are fiery characters, so only time will tell whether their friendship has been restored for good!

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the TOWIE Christmas special Ricky Rayment - who split with Jessica Wright in October - gets a kiss from a co-star underneath the mistletoe, while Fran Parman snuggles up to her very own Santa Claus - boyfriend Diags!
