Wayne Lineker joined Sam Faiers on set
He was seen with the cast in Marbella recently, as they shot scenes for the two-part summer special which kicked-off the new series.
Wayne already owns clubs in Ibiza and it is thought his plans to open a venue in Essex will provide a 'new Sugar Hut', after the famous nightspot's boss, Mick Norcross, quit 'The Only Was Is Essex' and banned the show from filming there.
In other changes for the show, Billi Mucklow, Danni Park-Dempsey and Darrell Privett have all been axed from the cast.
