Tensions reach boiling point between two of The Only Way Is Essex’s power couples in Sunday night’s episode.
Trouble has been brewing between Amber Turner and Yazmin Oukhellou in recent weeks, with the latter upset about being missed from the girls’ nights out, and things only escalate when their boyfriends get involved.
The drama transpires when Yazmin asks Amber why she hasn’t been invited out with her female co-stars, prompting the pair’s boyfriends James Lock and Dan Edgar to step in to defend them.

But it looks like their partner’s involvement only exacerbates matters as things get seriously heated between James and Dan.
The situation doesn’t bode well with their good friends Courtney Green and Chloe Meadows either, who admit they feel caught in the middle when Yazmin gives her side of the story.
The animated bust-up between the two couples comes after James and his TOWIE co-star Myles Barnett came under fire – once again – for their treatment of women following the return of the show earlier this month.

Six months after the duo caused a shocking storm, in which charity Women’s Aid blasted the show for ‘glamourising abuse’, viewers have again taken aim at the pair for their attitude towards their female co-stars and partners.
The duo were subject to much social media reaction as stunned viewers branded them ‘narcissistic, toxic and dodgy’ for their behaviour in the first episodes of series 23.
As the first episode of the series kicked off, Myles’ ongoing messy split from Courtney played out following his cheating scandal, while he was not only seen making jibes about his ex’s best pal Chloe but also locking horns with Amber.

Myles, who has now been exposed for dating Love Island star Kady McDermott, was subject to much commentary on social media as viewers swarmed the site to hit out at his relationship woes and his behaviour.
Users penned: ‘Myles only tried to get back with @courtneyMgreen so he could be the one to finally finish the relationship! He’s soooo controlling and manipulative!…
‘These men don’t understand that Myles has disrespected Courtney in their whole relationship and after the break up. This ain’t about him talking to someone else, this is about him!! #TOWIE… #Towie Myles is a douche!!…’
The drama continues in The Only Way Is Essex on Sunday 16th September, 9pm on ITVBe.
