Lauren Goodger, Gemma Collins and Mario Falcone will all return for TOWIE for Christmas special

Merry Essexmas, eh?

The Only Way Is Essex Christmas special is set to be something pretty big this year, as former cast members Lauren Goodger, Mario Falcone and Gemma Collins will all return. 


Happy Essexmas, right?

Ms Collins and Mr Falcone have not long left the ITVBe series, but it’s been a whole three years since Goodger has been telling anyone to shuuuttt uuupp – or indeed pushing anyone in a pool – on the show. 

While we’re told this is all that Lauren is doing with the show right now, we get the feeling there’s a hope among the team she’ll come back in a more permanent role. She’s one of the originals after all, helping launch the show back in 2010 with plenty of focus on her relationship with then beau Mark Wright. What could be more reem than a proper Goodger comeback, right?


The episode – naturally – will air at some point in December on ITVBe.
