Well slap us with a fake tan bottle and stick a sausage plait in the oven: Joey Essex is reportedly returning to TOWIE for series 17 after being spotted filming with regular cast members.

Two things. One - yup, The Only Way Is Essex really has been on your television screens for 16 series already. And two? YAAAAAAAAS JOEY ESSEX.

After a stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! and his own Educating Joey Essex television show, the king of Chigwell will reportedly appear on TOWIE when it turns to screens later this year.

The fella was spotted filming scenes in The Sugar Hut alongside current cast members, and although he hasn't confirmed the rumours yet, he previously told OK! Online he would be up for a TOWIE reunion.

He commented: "I never say never but it's a good show, I watch it and stuff still. I'm its biggest fan. My second name's Essex what can I say. I didn't even say this last year or the year before that - 2016 is my year. You'll know soon."

Just when you thought you might just be getting a bit bored of TOWIE (soz if that's blasphemy against Essex), Joey comes and changes EVERYTHING.

So, are you excited for his return or what? Will you be tuning in? Discuss with us over on our twitter or in the comment below, y'alllll lovely lot.
