It was all going off in the season opener in Marbella, what with that Lydia vs Vas spat and the Jess snogging Pete aftermath etc., and now it looks like there’s ANOTHER romantic drama on the horizon in tonight’s episode.

We all know that Lewis Bloor couldn’t make it to Marbs after losing his passport (doh!) but that doesn’t stop his ex-girlfriend Nicole Bass from putting in an appearance.

Gorgeous Nicole quickly catches the eye of the other boys, including new TOWIE face Michael Hassini who clearly fancies his chances. But just how will Lewis react to this potential new romance?!

Well luckily for us we’ll get to find out as Mr Bloor gets wind of Mike’s interest in Nicole, despite being all the way back in Essex.

And it sounds like he’s not too happy about the news as he’s quick to vent about it to James ‘Lockie’ Lock and Jake Hall. Uh-oh, has new boy Mike already upset the TOWIE lads?

We only ask because Mr Hassini is also set to stir up a bit of trouble for Jake and Chloe Lewis, having accused the pretty brunette of waiting around at home while Jake is out having fun. Eek…

Luckily it’s not all the bad sort of drama going down. THAT Jessica Wright and Pete Wicks hook-up looks set to continue, with Jess confessing that it might be more than a holiday romance.

We seriously hope this could go the distance – it’s about time Jess had some luck in the love department!

Meanwhile Tommy Mallet and Georgia Kousoulou celebrate their first anniversary (congrats!) and James ‘Arg’ Argent takes his theory test – but will he pass? Fingers crossed…

Watch all the romance and rows unfold in TOWIE on Wednesday 7 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
