But Cara and Nathan proved so popular on the ITV2 steamy reality show – which saw them couple up (totes official, like) and scoop the £50,000 prize money – it’s clearly an opportunity too good to miss.
Filming is taking place today and we’re told the four are off on a double date at a bowling alley. It’s due to be a one-off appearance, but something tells me these two will prove popular enough to stick around.
Meanwhile, Gemma Collins appears to be making a slow but steady comeback. Despite leaving the show, ‘GC’ has appeared in almost half of the episodes this series, so we wouldn’t be too shocked to see a full-time return from her next time around either.
Nathan and Cara’s appearance will be shown in Sunday’s episode.
The Only Way Is Essex continues at 10:00pm on Wednesday on ITVBe
