PICTURES! The Only Way Is Essex stars compete in Hot Dog eating competition

The Only Way Is Essex is back on ITV2 tonight, and while the drama continues there's also some light relief.

The gang have touched down back in Essex but the drama has followed them home from Marbella as the fall out from Joey and Sam's shock break up continues. Camps are divided as Frankie and Chloe rally around Joey and Billie and Ferne pledge their support to Sam, with both parties eager to get their side of the argument across.

Arg throws a Carb-BQ event to celebrate the group's return to Essex, and challenges Gemma's boyfriend Rami to a hot dog eating competition. Will the winner win Gemma's heart?

While Joey resolves to move on, and heads to the Carb-BQ, Sam, Billie and Ferne keep a low profile at a spa.

Lucy and Dan's relationship continues while Mario is fuming that someone has betrayed him in telling Lucy that he cheated on her. But before he sets out to uncover the culprit, he confesses to his mother the truth behind the cheating rumours....

TOWIE airs at 10PM tonight on ITV2.
