The TOWIE cast are heading to Scotland to film the Christmas special of The Only Way Is Essexmas.

Shunning their usual Essex surroundings, the likes of James 'Arg' Argent, Lydia Bright, Georgia Kousoulou and Kate Wright have boarded a plane to film the festive edition of the reality show.

Scotland is a change of location for the long-running ITVBe reality programme, but it will only form part of the hour-long Christmas episode.

Today marks the first day of filming and a rep for the show has confirmed to Reveal that "some of the special" will be filmed in Scotland.

Sharing a photo with fans via Instagram, Arg said: "We're on the plane!!!... @missgeorgiakx @xkatiewright. Heading to Scotland for the @towie Xmas special!!! #SoExcited."

Lydia, who has been in Australia filming for I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!'s ITV2 spin-off show, is also making her way to Scotland to be reunited with boyfriend Arg. Tommy Mallet and Dan Edgar are also joining the group to film.

Last week, Arg and co-star Danielle Armstrong donned their best Christmas jumpers as they teased the Christmas special while filming a promo for ITVBe.

There are lots of unanswered questions following the end of Series 16. Are Pete Wicks and Jessica Wright officially dating? WIll Dannielle and James 'Lockie' Lock rekindle their romance? Will Nicole Bass get together with Michael Hassini? And Will Arg pop the question to Lydia?

We can't wait to catch up with all the drama in December!
