If you can’t rely on The Only Way Is Essex cast to make a party something to talk about, then who can you?
This must have been what ITV were thinking when they sent out invitations to thier summer party to James ‘Diags’ Bennewith and his best pal Tom Pearce, and they didn’t disappoint.
The lads, who never make headlines for anything other than their many female conquests, have been pictured in today’s Daily Mail, both with girls on their arms.
Fans of the hit ITV2 reality show will know that Diags had taken fellow cast member Abi Clarke on a few dates towards the end of the last series, but had told her in no uncertain terms that they were not boyfriend and girlfriend.
However, it certainly didn’t look that way from the pictures, which show the pair strolling around hand in hand between snogs.
Discussing the blossoming relationship in a recent omg!yahoo interview, Diags said:
“The first [date] went OK, I think,. They don’t just fancy me because I’m famous, it’s my shining personality coming through!
“It’s a lot of pressure dating on TV, especially considering I don’t date in real life, I’m even more nervous! I’d like to see Abi again, I think she’s a nice girl, I’d like to see how it works out.”
But it wasn’t just Diags that got lucky, Tom Pearce can be seen trying to eat the face off Take Me Out contestant Emma Conybeare!
Joining the pair at the party was new cast member, Dan Osborne, who opted to stay away from the cameras in the last episode of the shows last series after it was revealed that he had known his ex was pregnant with his baby before hooking up with Lucy Mecklenburg during the shows summer special The Only Way Is Marbs.
And he wasn’t alone – he was seen hanging out with Abi’s best friend Jasmin Walia, who incidentally he also kissed in Marbella!
Could they be back on track to being friends who gaze lovingly out to see together again? We shall have to wait for the next series to find out!
