In this weekend's opener, half of the gang head for a sunny winter getaway in Tenerife, but the gossip quickly goes into overdrive when Liam starts a rumour about Megan’s best friend Amber T and Dan Edgar.

Meanwhile, back in Essex, a supportive Megan confronts Liam about his behaviour, and, as the situation becomes more heated, Megan storms off. Pete steps up to defend his girlfriend, and with tensions rising, it’s up to Georgia to step in to diffuse Pete and Liam’s fiery encounter.

Amber T is left with some explaining to do with boyfriend Jamie. Are Essex’s newest power couple over before they’ve begun?

Courtney is in the midst of a budding romance with new boyfriend Myles, while she and Chloe M reflect on their broken friendship with Amber T, who is caught in between their recent fall out with Megan.

Chloe S drops not one but two bombshells when she confesses to a whirlwind romance with Liam, only to reveal they have since split. Liam is eager to win her back and asks for a second chance. Is she prepared to give Gatsby another go?

Lockie meets up with new love Yazmin. Chloe Lewis is back from her holidays and comes face to face with Jon – is there still a spark between the pair or does she have her sights set elsewhere?

Elsewhere, Gemma Collins aka the GC is gearing up for her birthday bash but her party plans are halted when she ends up hospitalised in Tenerife…
