The Essex lot are in Newcastle this week.

Aside from Tommy encouraging the boys to talk about their issues, this episode was more about tying up loose ends.

Shelby’s bitter about Pete, Myles does have a heart, Saffron’s not keen on Shelby, Dan gets cosy with Diags, and Courtney gets closure.

This is the TOWIE recap: The Only Way is Essex season 23 episode 6!

Tommy, along with Pete Wicks, James ‘Lockie’ Lock, Bobby Norris and Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell all ‘bared all’ for the cause.

Shelby’s Done With Pete

Somehow, the Shelby-Pete saga still continues in this episode.

While Pete’s basically acting like he doesn’t know Shelby, she looks more and more frustrated each week.

Just look at that face…

Chloe Meadows stepped in with her two pence and dished out some encouraging words for Shelbz.

Chloe said:

I actually prefer you without Pete.

Now that’s girl power.

Plockie Catch Up

Anyone who watched last week’s episode 5 of TOWIE (September 30th) will know that Lockie’s girlfriend, Yaz Oukhellou, has taken some time off the show after falling out with pretty much everyone.

The two London boys caught up in Newcastle and had a nice chilled out conversation – which is pretty strange for these two hotheads.

Lockie admitted that he was missing Yaz.

Myles Has a Heart

On a bus tour of Newcastle, Diags, Myles and Dan Edgar breached the subject of Myles’s messy break-up with Courtney Green.

Myles confessed he does feel bad about the way things went but the only thing he can do is be a different boyfriend to his new girlfriend.

Great plan, Myles.

Myles then came face to face with Courtney later in the episode.

Courtney said:

I’ve got a bone to pick with you.

Before things went even further south and she told him she has zero respect for him anymore.

Ouch!

Saffron’s Not Into Shelby

TOWIE newbie Saffron finally started to make some waves this Sunday (October 7th) as she admitted she’s not getting good vibes from co-star Shelby.

Bobby Norris and Lauren Pope looked on in confusion as Saffron said she wasn’t into brunette beauty, Shelby.

We’ll let that one unfold next week, shall we?

Diags Gets a Hand From Dan

Also in episode 6, Diags and Dan got a bit cosier than usual.

One week he’s having a spray tan, the next he’s onto hair removal.

The evolution of Diags continued as Dan suggested that Diag should get rid of his hairy chest.
