    Returning

 

It’s time for another visit to the gossip and glamour capital of the UK as The Only Way Is Essex returns for an action packed twelve-part ninth series.  
 
Lifting the lid on the lives of Essex’s most colourful characters, old favourites Arg, Sam, Jess and Gemma are back sharing their latest triumphs and traumas, alongside some exciting new faces, including hot Essex heart throbs James and Dan, and party girls Jasmin and Abi.
 
The bikini bodies and reem torsos will be out in force as the TOWIE gang kick start series nine with two overseas specials, returning to their favourite Summertime haunt Marbella, but will foreign climes lead to chaos and confrontation?   
 
Series eight saw Essex more eventful than ever before, with Sam and Joey’s surprise engagement in Dubai, Mario and Little Chris’ friendship reaching breaking point, the two boy groups at war and Ricky’s ongoing feud with Jasmin. Since the cameras left them behind, Lucy and Mario have parted ways, but how will they both embrace the single life?
 
With explosive fall outs, outrageous fashion attempts, complicated love lives and OMG moments galore, one thing’s always guaranteed – expect the unESSEXpected. 
 
Continues Wednesday 5 June at 10pm on ITV2
