The Only Way Is Essex has been entertaining us since its debut in 2010.

The reality show has been full of laughter, tears, romance and fallouts, and in-between all of that has been some brilliant scene-stealers and storylines that we've almost forgotten about!

Whether finding a scene funny, shocking or sad, it's easy to forget just how many of those moments the show has delivered. So join us on this journey of some of our most memorable TOWIE moments...

Lucy Mecklenburgh goes blonde

Lucy shocked us all in 2012 when she dyed her brunette hair blonde after taking inspiration from Kim Kardashian! Lucy kept viewers guessing about what she'd done to her locks after visiting the hairdresser and kept her head covered until she could show fiancé Mario Falcone her transformation. Mario's response? Well, he was a little shocked. He confided in Tom Kilbey: "She left looking like Kim Kardashian but came back looking like Nicola Roberts. Still beautiful but I'm trying to get used to it."

Harry Derbidge dances to Lady Gaga

Wasn't this just pretty epic? Harry was celebrating his 17th birthday with his nearest and dearest by hosting a fancy dress party. Harry dressed up as Gaga and strutted his stuff to her hit song 'Telephone'. His sheer commitment to pulling off those dance moves was just brilliant.

Nanny Pat raps

Jessica Wright was busy penning her next hit and she let Nanny Pat have a listen of her new material. Nanny Pat approved, saying she would buy it, and that it's much better than some rap music out there. Jess put her nan to the test and Nanny Pat came out with a gem: "I went to get a pint of milk and I was wearing silk!" We just love her!

James 'Arg' Argent's sun bed disaster

Arg and his best mate Mark Wright decided to go on a sunbed, but Arg ended up burning himself... And it wasn't a pretty sight! "Mark, are you sure about that cream, I'm burning all over," Arg asked his BFF. In response, Mark burst out laughing! A concerned Arg wasn't too convinced, saying he thinks he looked like a tomato. Poor Arg.

Gemma Collins 'sexting' Ricky Rayment

Ricky Rayment argues with Jess Wright


Gemma was revealed as Ricky's secret admirer having sent him some saucy messages, despite the fact that she was dating Charlie King at the time. Ricky and Gemma had been exchanging messages but both had different version of events. "Me and Ricky have only been mates. Only ever clear banter," Gemma told Charlie. "We've been texting, a little bit flirty, but nothing meant by it... My interpretation of 'lets go wild' was lets go partying Brentwood'. Ricky, whose romance with Jessica Wright was beginning to develop, didn't quite see it like that. He said he only ever responded as a friend, and in a dramatic reveal, he confronted Gemma in a nightclub and told her to stop messaging him.
