PUT IT IN YOUR DIARIES!
With all the excitement from Love Island, Big Brother and Geordie Shore: Big Birthday Battle in recent weeks, it feels like AGES since we saw our Essex favourites on screen.
The 18th series kicks off with a special episode filmed in Mallorca, in case you hadn't noticed the thousands of paparazzi pictures of cast members in Palma over the last week!
We can't wait to see what everyone has been up to!
Last time TOWIE was on our screens we saw Pete and Megan become an official couple, Arg and Lydia house hunting, Chloe L and Jake breaking up, Chloe L and Megan rowing over a rumour about Jake, Georgia & Tommy all loved up, Danielle and Lockie giving romance another go, and Bobby getting close to Mr MMA Chris.
Since then things have certainly changed…
Arg and Lydia have broken up, for one thing, and pictures have shown them rowing on the beach in Majorca, suggesting they won't be getting back together any time soon. Jake was hospitalised in Marbella after allegedly being stabbed on a night out. Pete and Megan are even more smitten than before, as are Georgia and Tommy and Danielle and Lockie, while Bobby and Mr MMA have cooled things down because of distance.
Meanwhile, we still don't know if we'll be seeing any newcomers.
Last series, we welcomed Courtney Green, Megan McKenna, Chloe Meadows and Jon and Chris Clark to the show. There had been rumours a new girl called Emma Tomlinson had joined, but that's been denied.
And finally, is there any update on Gatsy's music career?! We're still waiting for that mega flash video!
TOWIE returns Sunday, 17 July at 10pm on ITVBe.
