The Only Way is Essex is currently in full swing and it’s all going off.
In TOWIE series 23 episode 7 there’s an Oktoberfest party, Gemma Collins and James ‘Arg’ Argent have bought a house together, Pete and Saffron have a chat over a sausage, Tommy continues to get the Essex boys to bare their feelings and Kim K’s best friend is on the show!
Aside from Arg having a Tony Soprano obsession and Diags and Dan perching on the toilet, here’s the TOWIE recap!
Sam Mucklow is Single
This episode saw potential sparks flying between TOWIE newbie Sam Mucklow and Devonian Shelby Tribble.
Shelby is recently single following an awkward split from ex-boyfriend Pete Wicks, but it looks like Shelby could be moving on already.
Sam said to Shelby:
Stop undressing me with your eyes!
I like Sam and Shelby would make a nice couple#towie

Saffron Lempriere and Pete Wicks
Over the last couple of episodes Saffron and Pete seem to be connecting on some kind of level.
Saffron has expressed more than once that she doesn’t get “good vibes” from Pete’s lingering ex-girlfriend, Shelby Tribble.
It looks like Saffron is team Pete all the way. She said:
The girls have said she’s better off without you so I think you’re better off without her, just carry on doing you.
Dan Edgar calls Amber Turner Clingy
Diags asked how Dan and Amber were doing together.
Dan replied: “Yeah good, shes very chilled but also clingy.”
Myles Barnett chipped into the conversation before Diags and Dan took him down a peg, highlighting Myles’ cringe-worthy social media posts of him and girlfriend Kady McDermott.
Although its October, Gemma wasn’t lying when she said she was feeling festive.
This episode we see her setting up a Christmas tree in her shop.
Tommy Mallett and Sam Mucklow arrive at GC’s shop in pure confusion.
Tommy said to Gemma: “It’s October.”
It doesn’t matter, its Christmas in my heart!
This was before she went ahead and did the splits in front of the two boys.
Dancing on Ice will be a walk in the park for the GC by the looks of things!
Enter Jonathan Cheban
As the episode moves on we’re introduced to Gemma’s friend from LA, Jonathan Cheban.
Jonathan – who’s also Kim Kardashian’s best friend – was horrified at Christmas tree to the point where Gemma physically threw it out of the shop.
Gemma then drove them both to get classic Essex pie and mash while stroking Jonathan’s hair in the car all the way there.
Chloe Meadows Wants Surgery
It was Chloe Meadows’ birthday in episode 7 and she starts to reflect on where she is in her life.
Chloe says to the girls: “I’ve been talking about getting some work done.”
Chloe M explained to her friends that she’s considering a boob job.
And while Chloe Lewis agreed you do feel pressure in Essex to look a certain way, she doesn’t want big boobs.
Amber Turner, on the other hand, said that having surgery changed her life for the better.
Chloe M said to her mum:
It annoys me that I’m not confident.
Amber Stayed Loyal
This episode Myles has the cheek to ask Dan and Amber to go on a double date with him and Kady.
However, Amber bailed on the double date about two minutes in and went and joined her friends at Sam Mucklow’s Oktoberfest party.
Good one, Amb.
Kady’s 2nd appearance on TOWIE and she’s already trying to slag off Courtney to one of her best friends to make her look bad on TV. Literally cannot stand that. Amber noticing straight away and getting out of there is the kind of friends you need🤙🏻 Get an Amber not a Kady #TOWIE
