TOWIE: Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet confront Arg over remark in Majorca

TOWIE's Georgia Kousoulou and James 'Arg' Argent have started the new series with a row... eek, what's happened?!

We'd never have Georgia and Arg down as Essex co-stars who would be fighting but that's just what happens in The Only Way Is Majorca when series 18 kicks off on Sunday night (17 July).

So, the big question: what happened?

Well, uh, we're not exactly sure as it's all been kept under wraps for the big episode but what we DO know is that Georgia and boyfriend Tommy Mallet are angry with Arg after hearing comments he's made about Georgia.

They decide to confront him in Majorca hoping for an apology...

Will he apologise?

We're guessing it all has to do with Arg's split from on-off girlfriend of seven years, Lydia Bright, who is one of Georgia's best friends. Arg and Lydia quietly separated after series 17 wrapped in March, only revealing the break-up seveal weeks after it happened.

Since then, Lydia has said she's "happier than ever" and focusing on herself, while Arg has been at boot camp in the UK and Portugal to embrace a new healthier lifestyle. The former couple did come face to face in Majorca, as we've all seen the pictures, but what exactly happened is unclear.

Their co-stars told Reveal this week they reckon this is the final split for Lydia and Arg, who have broken up and reunited many times over the past seven years.

"This isn't the first time, that is what everyone needs to remember," said Danielle Armstrong. "Arg, as much as we love him, he has mucked up quite a few times. I think there is only so much a girl can take."

Bobby added that Arg is looking great these days but he doesn't want Arg's new healthy lifestyle to be purely driven by thoughts of winning Lydia back.

"I said to him, 'James you're looking fantastic, keep this up and do it for you. Everything you're doing, do it for yourself and if it helps you one day get Lydia back, because I know she is the girl of your dreams – amazing. But if it doesn't, you've still achieved something.'

"It's just hard being one of those friends, because you want to be a shoulder to cry on for both of them. Lydia seems quite strong. Not to make her sound like she doesn't care, but she's done her grieving almost for that relationship."

We'll find out all when TOWIE returns Sunday, 17 July at 10pm on ITVBe!
