After all the drama from Sunday night’s The only Way Is Essex, things were never likely to simmer down any time soon, were they?
Fans of the hit ITV2 reality show will know how, during last week’s instalment Jessica Wright was a woman on a mission determined to find out the extent of her boyfriend, Ricky Rayment’s cheating.
Confronting his best friend, Mario Falcone, whose resentful comments bought the incident to light, Jess pleaded with him to tell her how many times Ricky had been unfaithful to her, which Mario assured her, hand on heart, was just the once – unfortunately for all involved, however, not realising that his mic was still on he commented that he had “never had to lie so much in his life”, for everyone to hear on the TV!
Tonight will see the repercussions of this, with Jess in turmoil as she discusses the situation with her mum Carol and family friend James ‘Arg’ Argent.
Their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of Ricky and pretty soon the atmosphere is unbearable resulting in Jess breaking down and telling Ricky that: “my heart is broken!”
Will their relationship survive this, or is it the end of Rissica for good? (We hope not as we just made that name up and are rather proud of it)!
Elsewhere and another relationship in turmoil, or the scrap yard whichever way you want to look at it, is that of Sam Faiers and Joey Essex.
Whilst Sam and Joey themselves seem to be keeping a sensitive silence over the breakdown in the relationship, it is their friends and family’s interference which is keeping the drama on fast spin.
With Joey’s cousin Chloe and Sam’s sister Billie almost coming to blows over the situation last week, tonight it is Sam’s friend Ferne’s turn to get involved.
Ferne, who as fans will know is going out with Joey’s cousin and Chloe’s brother Charlie but is also Sam’s best friend (that we had never heard of until earlier this month), finds herself being confronted by Joey tonight as he brands her two-faced. Ferne tries to defend herself, but when Chloe can’t help but stick her two pence worth in again, the tears start flowing yet again.
Hopefully though a change in job might make Chloe take a step back from other people’s business as she goes for an interview with Essex Style Magazine, in hope of pursuing a career as a designer, but can she take the pressure?
And, possibly also in a bid to take her mind off Sam and Joey, Ferne decides to hire a dog for the day to see how she and Charlie would cope having a pet of their own, but Charlie doesn’t seem too keen!
