PICTURES! The Only Way Is Essex series finale - Joey Essex proposes!

The Only Way Is Essex concludes on ITV2 tonight as Joey Essex proposes to Sam Faiers.

The Essex gang are bowing out with a bang as series eight draws to a close.

We saw the TOWIE lovebirds leaving for a romantic getaway to Dubai at the end of last Sunday night's instalment, and the drama continues this evening at a romantic poolside location.

Joey and Sam arrive in Dubai and take in the sunshine in a luxury apartment but as the big proposal draws ever closer, Joey gets stage fright and makes emotional phone call to his dad. Will he go through with it and more importantly will Sam agree to become Mrs Essex?

Back home the two sets of boys gear up for the big football match to determine who really are the kings of Essex. But when Mario pledges his support to Arg's team, Ricky and Little Chris declare all out war.

At the post match party, the losing boys strip off to fulfil their forfeit, and things turn heated as Lucy and Mario confront Little Chris...

The drama continues in The Only Way Is Essex on Wednesday 3rd April on ITV2 at 10pm.
