Lyd's returned, but who else is considering a comeback?

Will Lydia's return signal another familiar face rejoining the TOWIE fold? Which former TOWIE cast members have bid Sam a fond farewell? And is there more to the Popey and Chloe fallout than meets the eye? Read on...

Flustered, but excited, Arg's on-screen response to Lyd's comeback was hilarious. His Twitter response was a little more reserved...

Apparently Arg has been rather busy since seeing Lydia at the party...

Former TOWIE hottie, Lucy, added her thoughts...

Mario hits back at Popey interrogation

After making him squirm like a worm doing 'the worm' dance, Mario took to Twitter to respond to Lauren's accusations of his latest womanising exploits, Chloe vented her anger and we welcomed a new TOWIE face......

Not "against the law", Mario, but 1) It sounds like Chloe didn't know about one of the girls you were talking to, which is a harsh way to treat your best friend's sister who has admitted feelings for you! And 2) Under your own celibacy vow rules, you've said you wouldn't talk to other girls. TUT, TUT!

We get the feeling that the Mario/Lucy saga isn't over yet, but is Lauren and Chloe's friendship?

Who's been digging Lockie out?

And who's been mugging off Lewis? Check out these tasty TOWIE tweets...

The talk of the town for the last few weeks has been all about the Elliott v Lewis boxing showdown. Elliott took the bragging rights after delivering a knockout punch...

Perhaps Lewis' mind was elsewhere; namely on his 'ex' who now seems his 'current'...

Who's taken the hump following Chloe's kiss?

We've got all the cast reaction from Chloe and Mario's kiss to Lewis' pie-ing of Grace. First up, here's what everyone's saying about the Rayments vs. the Wrights...

First up and Ricky and Jess' parents came face to face...

We do indeed love a parent face off, Miss McCann! We also love a *LOUD NOISES* argument and so does Diags...

Yep, Ricky and Elliott didn't exactly talk through their issues as much as shout through them...

TOWIE tweets: Elliott v Ricky

What do you fancy to eat? Some Twitter beef? We've got an Elliott and Ricky stew and a Lockie roast to get your teeth stuck into...

Big El's sticking up for himself following that awkward Wright family meal he called Ricky out. He hasn't taken too kindly to Ricky's outburst either ("He's a two-faced, old, bitter, jealous man with nothing in his life. He's divorced, he's chasing after 18 year-olds at 33 and he's giving out relationship advice. Do one!")...

Who's Mario flirting with now?

He may be celibate, but Mario's still getting his flirt on. Meanwhile, the Ricky and Jess situation has caused a divide. Check out the latest tasty TOWIE tweets...

Elliott has been very forthright with his views on Gemma and Arg AND Jess and Ricky. He thinks Arg has been using Gem, and he reckons Ricky needs to up his game with Jess and show his commitment to her...

Gem's thankful for Elliott's support, but is she REALLY over Arg? ...

It wasn't just Elliott weighing in on Ricky's commitment to Jess. Mario also voiced his concern, but went the other way and backed his boy Ricky...

Arg's food party served up a lot of beef

As Tom says, a TOWIE party will always throw up an argument or two, but Arg's food party served starters, mains AND deserts...

Gemma and Bobby think Dani's a bit deluded in believing Lockie's innocence in the whole did he/didn't he cheat saga, which caused a split in the TOWIE camp. Billie's on Gem and Bobby's side and showed her allegiance by impersonating Lockie (and impersonating him rather well, we must add)...

Bill's sister also stuck up for Gemma after Dani and Lockie's rather heated argument with her and Bob...

Mario has both feet planted in the Lockie and Dani camp. He thinks Gem and Bobby bullied Dani when she went to visit them in Gem's shop...

New TOWIE cutie has lots of fans

Dan's super-cute baby Teddy takes the limelight and Lockie joins an exclusive TOWIE members club...

The ladies love the babies...
