Mark Wright makes TOWIE comeback

Mark Wright's former flame Sam Faiers responds to her ex with "OMG" when she comes face to face with him as he makes a guest appearance in a The Only Way Is Essex festive special. Mark pops back up on the ITV2 show after leaving last year and later appearing in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! and hosting Take Me Out: The Gossip. The Sun said that his sister Jessica persuaded him to make the comeback by telling him that best friend James "Arg" Argent has been depressed without him. The episode also sees fellow castmates don silly hats before going paintballing for the day. Mark recently confirmed his TOWIE comeback on Twitter, writing: "I'm so happy to confirm that I'm taking part in the one-off Xmas special of TOWIE. Going to be fun and great to make one final appearance."
