We'll see her catching up with Georgia in tonight's instalment, and attending Billie Faiers' daughter Nelly Shepherd's second birthday with Chris, who is the younger brother of Jon Clark.

Exciting! We love a newcomer!

Catching up with Georgia.

Amber and Chris have been dating since March and she recently said: "There's a lot of pressure on whether or not we're official, but we're seeing each other and seeing how it goes. From the way it's going at the moment, I'm sure it will be."

But what about that infamous TOWIE curse that breaks up previously strong couples?!

"We just need to stay strong and be honest with each other the whole way through, and not let anyone come between us," said Amber. "Trust and loyalty is the key."

Amber is the only new arrival this series so far.

Chris, meanwhile, has said something similar, predicting he and Amber are too strong to let it affect them: "If we talk to each other and are open about things then nothing can catch us off guard. Trust and communication is key. If you don't have either of those, you'll fail both in TOWIE and in life."

But, of course, this is TOWIE and drama is never far off... some have predicted that drama will be between Amber and Courtney Green, who dated Chris briefly last series.

"Everyone thinks me and Courtney [will have an issue] because of the Chris situation," said Amber. "I think that's just an assumption though as I don't know her. We're different people but we'll see – I haven't met [her] yet properly."

Meanwhile, Amber's arrival has got the thumbs up from co-stars Megan McKenna and Danielle Armstrong, who have both welcomed her to the show.

Megan told Reveal: "I know Amber, I've met her a few times. She's nice. I know her sister really well."

Danielle added: "I've met Amber before, she's quite feisty, a nice girl, she'll be a good character for the show. You want someone like that. You don't want someone to just come on and get one with everyone, that's boring. You've got to have something about you. So, I hope there is a little bit of drama!"

TOWIE continues Wednesday at 10pm on ITVBe.
