Find out what happened with Mark's turbulent love life - could sexy Sam or sultry Lucy keep the lothario from settling down with long time love Lauren? What will sister Jess and mum Carole make of his decisions? We follow bubbly beautician Amy and her cousin Harry as they introduce the definitive Essex spray chart, search for an assistant and go glamping! OH SHUT UUUP! Having won over Lydia can loveable Arg keep her when faced with Lyd's protective mother Debbie? And what sort of advice can Kirk's dad give to the fiery club manager over his true feelings for girlfriend Lauren. It's not just the parents getting in on the act as we meet Joey Essex (yes, real name) who spends his days perfecting his walnut-whip and evenings wooing the ladies, his cousin, model Chloe and let's not forget Essex's number one car sales rep, wheeler-dealer Gemma. All this served up with a healthy portion of national treasure Nanny Pat too!
