Meanwhile Gemma and new love Charlie decided to re-enact the scene from Titanic where Jack draws Rose, Joey snogged Sam at his "reem" party and we found out that Ricky had been receiving dirty messages from a secret source. Cliffhanger alert!
We didn't have to wait long though, as the next episode revealed that Gemma was Ricky’s secret sexy texter. Poor Charlie, and after all that romantic Titanic business too…
Joey had been setting up a boy band called The Boys (imaginative) and band member Tom P decided it was time to ask Lauren out for a drink – because girls like musicians, right?
Arg, along with Cara and Billi, then put his newfound fitness to the test by competing in the London Marathon. Arg managed to get over the finish line in an impressive six hours and one minute. All those Marbella boot camps must have paid off…
Back in Essex, Charlie called time on his and Gemma’s relationship, while Joey and Sam decided to rekindle their romance and go on a date - helicopter trip around Essex anyone?
In a mid-series treat, Nanny Pat wowed viewers with a rap about buying a pint of milk before Tom K and Billi split up, too. *sob*
Episode seven was all about Gemma. First she had an uncomfortable run in with Charlie, before taking new man Rami to a dinner party where Ricky (the recipient of her earlier dirty texts) was in attendance. All went well until Gemma bought another of the TOWIE boys into the mix, claiming Arg said he’d kiss her if she lost two stone!
