The 26-year-old 'Love Island' champion and her 24-year-old beau are set to appear in Wednesday (15.03.17) evening's episode of the popular ITVBe show for a second time, and it has set tongues wagging the pair will be a permanent fixture on the programme, according to The Mirror Online.

The happy couple will join their friends Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet to celebrate at an Irish-themed party ahead of St. Patrick's Day on Friday (17.03.17) in tonight's episode.

The pair first appeared on the show last year to mark Georgia and Tommy's second anniversary together, which saw them drop the bombshell they were getting a "baby" in the form of a pet pooch.

Speaking in the episode, they said: "We're getting a baby.

"No, we're getting a dog."

After the announcement, the Mallet Footwear founder admitted he felt it was a "bad idea" for him and his blonde beauty girlfriend to be hanging around the ITV2 reality show winners because it encouraged Georgia to ask about having more pets.

He joked: "See! I told you it was a bad idea to hang around with them because you two."

However, Cara and Nathan will not be the only television personalities to return to the show, as Mario Falcone - who previously dated Lauren Pope and Lucy Mecklenburgh on the show - is set to make a one-off comeback in tonight's episode to give his former flame Chloe Sims relationship advice following her split with Liam Gatsby.

'The Only Way Is Essex' will air on Wednesday on ITVBe at 10pm.
