The Only Way is Essex may be in its sixth season but that doesn’t mean it’s short of drama.
Despite years of friendship dating back to their teens, TOWIE stars Sam Faiers and Lucy Mecklenburgh are the first ones to row in the new series.
The last episode ended with a romantic proposal from Lucy’s boyfriend, Mario Falcone, whilst on a luxury yacht in Spain. The 20-year-old then announced her engagement in front of her Essex cast mates at a spray party during the show’s one-off Marbella special.
It was then that Sam mentioned her concerns about her pal’s beau, suggesting he couldn't be trusted.
So naturally Lucy chooses to confront Sam about the catty comments she makes at her engagement party. But it doesn’t take long for the girls to get heated with Sam saying: "You were my friend. And what you are doing now is completely ruining that."
As Joey Essex steps in to calm everyone down he and Mario get into their own argument and Lucy retaliates with, “Thanks for ruining our engagement party.”
To watch the full episode tune into ITV2 on Sunday.
