Mario moves on
Newly-single Mario is wasting no time in getting reacquainted with the ladies, while his ex, Lucy, isn't exactly doing badly with the fellas either...
Mario and Lucy's split back in April had been coming since, well, since they originally got together. Mr Falcone's eye for the ladies was always a problem, but now it seems it's plus point. The Italian stallion - much to Arg's jealous disgust - shared a cheeky snog with Beth, a Miss Universe runner-up.
Lucy, meanwhile, looked to have left a club with Danny Osborne.
Arg had no such luck! He tried in vain to pull Gemma for the millionth time, but finally she said no to his saucy demands. We bet Gem's boyfriend Rami blew a big sigh of relief!
Could it be that Joey and Sam have hit the rocks? Sam's friend Fearne doesn't think they're suited. Fanning those flames, the 'next time in TOWIE' section of the show seemed to suggest major arguments ahead for engaged couple. UH-OH.
The major argument in the series nine opener came from newbie Wayne Lineker (yep, Gary's bro) and Chloe 'No Lip' Sims. Chloe may have had the collagen removed from her mouth, but that didn't stop her from telling Wayne Lineker where to go! The pair don't seem to like each other at all. Will this stop Popey from having a holiday romance with the silver fox?
