YOU can be forgiven for thinking there has been an invasion of reality TV stars on the Costa del Sol over the last week.
Indeed, you could hardly move in Marbella or Puerto Banus without tripping over one of the cast from hit show The Only Way is Essex, better known as TOWIE.
The TV show has been filming for a one-off ‘Marbs’ special, with the cast hanging out at the beach clubs by day and the ritzy restaurants by night.
In some of the more unlikely pictures to emerge, Lauren Goodger joined co-stars Cara Kilbey and Frankie Essex at the exclusive restaurant Polo House, where they were seen dining with its owner, former British Household Cavalry officer James Hewitt.
The girls washed down a sumptuous dinner of buffalo mozzarella, baby lamb cutlets and lemon torte with Veuve Clicquot champagne before hitting the dancefloor.
Goodger – who is currently undertaking the Cambridge Weight Plan – showed off her slim figure as she posed for photos with the 54-year-old restaurateur.
The girls were also spotted partying at La Sala restaurant in Puerto Banus alongside footballers including David Bentley, Stephen Carr and Jake Livermore.
Other cast members, including Chloe Sims and Lauren Pope were also seen shopping in Puerto Banus.
