'The Only Way Is Essex': Bobby Norris Dons AMAZING Mermaid-Inspired Swimwear In Marbella (PICS)

Over the years, Bobby Norris’s outlandish swimwear has become as vital a part of ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ as fake tan and hair extensions - but his latest offering truly takes the vajazzled biscuit.


In past series, we’ve seen him hit the beach in what have been dubbed the “Bobby ball-bag” and his infamous “side-saddle mankini”, and we’re pleased to see that he hasn’t disappointed while filming the new series of ‘TOWIE’ in Marbella.

This time around, though, he’s taken the potentially wise move of covering up, but that doesn’t mean for one second that he’s going down a traditional swimwear route.


Yep, new photos from the set of ‘The Only Way Is Marbs’ show Bobby sporting his very own fish-tail, in a nod to everyone’s favourite Disney classic, ‘The Little Mermaid’.

You might think that such an off-the-wall ensemble might be difficult to move around the beach in, but Bobby’s got it covered, with one image showing him being carried around the beach by last series’ new heartthrob, Peter Wicks.

Here's how we want to be carried around the beach from now on

Well-played, Bobs. Well-played.

We can only hope and pray this means that in the new series, we’re going to get a shot of Bobby performing a rousing rendition of ‘Part Of Your World’, complete with enthusiastic hair-flip.


Bobby isn’t the only ‘TOWIE’ cast member causing a stir in the party city, though, with other photos showing none other than Nanny Pat making an appearance, riding her motorised scooter in a suitably eye-catching hat.

Good hat

Sadly, though, one familiar face we won’t be seeing is Gemma Collins, with The GC confirming back in the summer that she was bowing out of ‘TOWIE’ once and for all.
