TOWIE heads to Spanish party isle for new series

The next series of 'The Only Way Is Essex' is to be filmed in Ibiza.

The ITV2 reality series' stars have been warned they must be on their best behaviour after show bosses decided to launch the next series in the Spanish party hotspot.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Bosses think having the cast in Ibiza will look great on telly.

"But there are, of course, other temptations on Ibiza and everyone has been warned not to get up to mischief."

The cast - which includes James 'Arg' Argent, Tom Pearce, Gemma Collins and Ferne McCann - will be flown to the Balearic island in September for the nightclubs' season closing parties, which are notoriously wild.

However, bosses have been forced to give the stars a stern talking to, to ensure their drinking doesn't get out of control and that they don't get involved in any more drugs scandals.

Cast member James 'Lockie' Lock recently returned to the show after being given a conditional discharge for pleading guilty to possession of ketamine.

Meanwhile, Mario Falcone is currently suspended from 'TOWIE' following the emergence of video footage of someone, believed to look like him, snorting cocaine while on a night out.

The hunk also missed out on the cast's annual trip to Marbella, Spain, because of the alleged incident.
