The Only Way is Essex season 23 episode 9 is here and it’s Halloween.

The cast are dressed up to the nines, and although TOWIE usually involves numerous break-ups it seems that episode 9 is all about kissing and making up.

We’re not sure what all this spooky Halloween stuff has done to the Essex-lot.

This is the TOWIE recap – season 23 episode 9!

Billi Mucklow Returns

Sam Mucklow’s sister, Billi, is back on our screens after five years.

The blonde bombshell sat down with her brother and three children and talked everything dating.

Billi said: “You’re such a lovely guy and you’re lovely to girls. You’re respectful to women. You need to buck up your ideas and try and find yourself a girlfriend”.

Yaz and Amber Make Up

Finally, Yazmin Oukellhou and Amber Turner make amends this episode.

The Yaz and Amber saga has gone on just about long enough.

Yaz recently returned from a wellness retreat in Spain after all her personal relationships began turning toxic. Yaz said:

I was upset because I thought it was just you, Courtney and Chloe. I felt like I wasn’t involved any more.

Amber said: “I feel like you’ve changed so much, I want you to go back to the fun Yaz. The one that didn’t give a f**k about anyone”.

The way you were when you weren’t with him, is so different from how you are now.

Later on, Yaz was invited to see the rest of the girls and things are back as they always were.

Diags’ Date

After last week’s number exchange, James ‘Diags’ Bennewith bagged a date with Kady McDermott’s bestie, Jodie Charles.

His date was crashed by his three best friends, however, and they weren’t interested in leaving.

Diags’ date, Jodie, didn’t seem too bothered by his awkward behaviour and strange comments though and said she was having a great time.

Although later on in the episode Diags admits to Courtney Green and Saffron Lempriere that there’s no chemistry between him and Jodie.

Sam Mucklow and Shelby Tribble

Recently single, Shelbz and her new BFF Sam Mucklow went on an adventurous date this week.

Apparently, it was a ‘friend date’ whatever that means but the pair look to have a spark.

Going off Sam’s conversation with his sister, though, he wants to keep his Essex-girl options open and even mentioned Lauren Pope as a potential partner.

In the last episode of TOWIE (October 21st) Lockie and Yaz had words at the bowling alley.
