TOWIE spoilers

In tonight’s opening episode, TOWIE returns for a summer getaway. The power couples head overseas for some Italian escapades as they take to Sardinia, but as ever an escape to foreign climes brings its own dose of gossip and drama.

Amber comes face to face with Myles for the first time since his break up with Courtney, and as she steps in to defend her friend, the pair clash over Myles’ behaviour.


Tommy opens up to Georgia about the stress and anxiety he’s endured after a hectic few months at work, and Georgia later gets emotional as she relays his struggles to the girls. Meanwhile, Tommy gets a surprise when old friend Sam Mucklow makes an unexpected appearance in Sardinia.

Yaz and Lockie’s relationship is back on its rollercoaster of ups and downs as the pair are once again bickering over a difference of opinions, and the other couples offer their own take on the warring couple.

After a difficult few weeks, Gemma opts to miss Bobby’s birthday party and instead spend the day with best friend Saffron. As they share a heart to heart, GC admits:

“I’ve had so much going on, to turn up at a big party and act like everything’s OK and the GC’s fabulous and all that, it’s just not the day today. Too much has been going on, I’m not in the mood.”

After talking her recent troubles through with both Saffron and Chloe Sims, Saffron then encourages GC to tell Bobby why she’s really giving him the cold shoulder.
