The couple are joining the cast for a special occasion

TOWIE is about to add some new faces to the cast and you might just recognise them…

The latest additions to the show are Love Island winners Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde and they’ll be seen hanging out with some of the regulars on this Sunday’s episode.

TOWIE viewers turn against Megan McKenna

Nathan, 24, is good mates with Tommy Mallet and will be seen going on a double date with his mate and their respective girlfriends Cara, 25, and Georgia Kousoulou.

The group are going bowling together and will be filming the scenes today. Er, can we come next time, guys?

Whilst Nathan and Cara’s appearance is being billed as a guest spot, it sounds like there’s hope of them becoming series regulars at some point in the future.

Nathan – who became pals with Tommy when he was an apprentice for him at a carpentry company several years ago – is looking at moving into a flat in the same building as Tommy and Georgia.

So who knows, maybe they’ll become neighbours and Mr Massey will be popping up more often!

It comes after previous speculation that the lovebirds might join the cast of the hit series following their Love Island triumph last month.

Nathan told the Daily Star a few weeks ago: ‘We have friends on TOWIE and I’ve said before that I would love to join the show, so we wouldn’t say no.’

Cara also added: ‘Of course we are excited about new TV projects and would love to continue entertaining.’

It’s not the first TOWIE/Love Island crossover either. Current cast member Jon Clark found fame on LI last year, having reached the final with love interest Hannah Elizabeth.

Sadly, despite getting engaged on the show, that relationship fizzled out soon afterwards.

TOWIE’s also welcomed other reality stars, including Ex On The Beach and Celebrity Big Brother alumni Megan McKenna.

We can’t wait to see how Cara and Nathan fit in amongst all the TOWIE drama!
