TOWIE star Fran Parman and her co-star boyfriend James 'Diags' Bennewith looked every inch the loved-up couple on their date night earlier this week.

The pair joined their co-stars Jessica Wright and Dan Edgar for a double date, heading out for dinner together at Faces Kitchen and Bar in Chelmsford, Essex.

Filming new scenes for TOWIE during their evening out, Fran and Diags were pictured cuddling up together and we think they couldn't look happier!

While Fran looked gorgeous in a fitted black jumpsuit (and a sleek black mani to match!), Diags cut a dapper figure in a collared navy shirt. Cosying up in their booth, the pair - who recently celebrated their one-year anniversary - were all smiles as they posed together.

No doubt their date night with Jess and Dan came as a welcome break for 'Friags', as the couple have been at the centre of the Essex drama lately.

At the start of TOWIE's latest series, Fran fell out with Georgia Kousoulou. Following their awkward meeting onscreen, the girls clashed over Twitter with Fran calling her former BFF "two-faced" and Georgia accusing Fran of wanting more air time on the ITVBe show.

Things have since been made more tense between the pair as Diags - while sticking up for Fran - accused Georgia's boyfriend Tommy Mallet of being unfatihful.

He claims Tommy cheated on Georgia during a night out in Newcastle and then asked him to cover for him. Tommy has denied this.

Following the allegations, Georgia has stuck by Tommy, branding Diags "embarrasing" for resurfacing an old incident that she and her beau have already dealt with.

On Wednesday's episode of TOWIE, viewers saw Georgia and Tommy come face-to-face with Fran and Diags for the first time since the claims were made.

While Georgia wanted to get to the bottom of the rumours, Diags - angered by being called a liar - refused to talk and he and Fran walked off.

Georgia has since hit out at the pair, claiming Fran and Diags have "no backbone" as they were not upfront with her when they had chance.

"I'm not surprised they walked off because I feel like they've got no backbone," she said. " If you had something to prove, you'd want to prove me wrong... they're not doing that. I feel like they've made it up."

Fran, however, has insisted Diags hasn't lied. During her confrontation with her co-stars she told Tommy: "[Diag's] isn't a lolly [liar]. You watch!"

Sounds like the couples' fallout is far from over!

TOWIE continues Sunday 22 March at 10pm on ITVBe.
