Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey return to TOWIE with new son Freddie

Nathan and Cara

Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey are returning to The Only Way Is Essex.

The Love Island 2016 winners have appeared on the ITVBe show previously and have filmed scenes for the new series.

But this time they're not alone, welcoming son Freddie along with them.

The Sun reports that the pair will be seen in scenes with friends and TOWIE co-stars Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet.

"Cara and Nathan do pop in to film scenes with the cast whenever they can," a source told the tabloid. “They’re particularly excited about shooting this time round as it will be Freddie’s first TV appearance."

The insider added: “They will most likely film again with Tommy, who struggled to hold back the tears when the couple asked him to be Freddie’s Godfather in scenes that aired last year.

“Their relationship has gone full circle since Cara last appeared on the series as she filmed with Georgia shortly after her and Nathan’s brief split.”

Speaking last week about life with Freddie, Cara said: "Nathan's such a good dad, he is besotted."

"It's absolutely superb," agreed Nathan, "It's the best thing ever. Fred is amazing, he's made everything just perfect."

Cara and Nathan had split up shortly before the pregnancy but rekindled their romance before welcoming Freddie last December.

"Fred is amazing, he's made everything just perfect," Nathan told OK! magazine.

The Only Way is Essex continues Sunday nights at 9PM on ITVBe.
