She reportedly quit TOWIE in order to get over her former flame James Lock ten months ago.
But Danielle Armstrong, 29, is returning for just one night as she revealed she is set to star in the Halloween special, filmed in Norfolk, where she must come face-to-face with her ex beau and his girlfriend Yazmin Oukhellou.
It is set to be explosive as her last awkward run-in with James’ new lover reportedly saw her thrown out of Essex club Sheesh after a very heated exchange in April.

The Only Way Is Essex beauty, who boasts over one million followers, teased her return to the ITVBe show with a costume-clad snap on Instagram.
Stunning Danielle put on a busty display in the one-shoulder velvet dress which featured a perilous split.
Brought in at the waist with a corset, the reality star also flaunted her trim 25-inch waist – the result of a heartbreak diet following her split from footballer Daniel Spiller.
Danielle captioned the picture: ‘For One Night Only IM BACK #towie #happyhalloween #onenightonly #surpriseparty #shock #awkward #tuneinnextweek.’

The ITVBe personality quit the show back back in 2016 after her three-year on/off relationship with co-star James came to an end for the second time in August.
Danielle initially broke it off with her lover in the summer of 2015 citing his unpredictable temper as the main reason for her decision.
It was evident James didn’t feel the same way as he had been planning to propose to the blonde beauty. They decided to give their romance a second chance in April 2016 when she claimed to have noticed a ‘massive change’ in the hunk.

But it wasn’t meant to be as their relationship came to an end for a second time, which reportedly spurred Danielle’s decision to leave the show.
At the time, a source told The Daily Star: ‘She is still struggling to get over James and doesn’t think she’ll be able to do that while they are constantly filming scenes together.
‘Dani knows that in order to move on and be happy she needs a proper break from James and unfortunately that means leaving the show too.
‘She wants to find the one, marry, settle down and have children and she knows there is no chance of that happening if she hasn’t moved on from James first.’

In March 2017, Yazmin was introduced to the TOWIE gang as James’ girlfriend and a month later she reportedly suffered a fiery run-in with his ex Danielle.
Bitter Danielle was reportedly thrown out the bar after she brawled with her ex-boyfriend’s current squeeze.
At the time, a diner at Sheesh in Chigwell told The Sun: ‘James Lock and Yazmin were sat on a table and on the opposite side was Danielle, Jess Wright and Ferne McCann.
‘Yaz went to the toilet and Dani started dancing in front of Lockie, she was bending over and twerking.
‘Yaz came back and started arguing with Dani, she said something to Lockie about Dani being a sl** and Dani flew at Yaz. She told Lockie they he could have anyone and “what’s he doing with her?”‘

A spokesperson for Danielle told MailOnline: ‘She chose to leave and wasn’t kicked out. She left following a situation inside. She was nowhere near Lockie.’
While James has been putting his heartache behind him with Yazmin, Danielle embarked on a new romantic story of her own with Daniel Spiller.
Danielle and Daniel had initially gone public with their affections for one another in December 2016, following her split with James in August.
But the television hunk put the breaks on their relationship when he decided to split from the blonde beauty in August earlier this year.

However, the lovebirds are said to be ‘working things through’ with a reunion possibly on the cards. They were pictured together for the first time in Madrid in September since they decided to rekindle their romance.
It was a coincidence the pair were in the Spanish capital at the same time as they were in the city on separate outings.
Days before the pictures, an inside told The Sun: ‘Dani was heartbroken when she split with Dan, absolutely in bits, so it’s no surprise to anyone that she’s back with him.’
