Inside Towie's incredible Dominican Republic trip as Chloe Brockett is snubbed – but James Locke returns

THE Only Way Is Essex stars have jetted off to the Dominican Republic to film their incredible new series launch show.

The reality favourites are headed to the five-star Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana, which can cost up to a whopping £2,000 a night.

The TV star were seen heading to the airport on Monday afternoon as they all made their way to the Dominican Republic.

Among them were James Locke, Junaid Ahmed and Jordan Brook – while former star Chloe Brockett was prevented from taking part.

The group is due to stay in the all-inclusive luxury hotel, which is set on the white sand beaches of the Punta Cana resort.

Snaps of the hotel reveal incredible floating water villas, as well as a large hotel complex overlooking a number of swimming pools.

Towie add TWO new cast members – do you recognise them from their TV past?

The huge pools are lined with large palm trees – with a lazy river ride flowing between them all for a spot of relaxation.

For those who prefer to lounge on the beach, the white sand is speckled with blue sunbeds and wooden umbrellas.

For guests in the suites at the hotel, there is a separate private beach area with larger sunbeds, surrounded by curtains.

The hotel complex also has a luxurious spa, with indoor pools, saunas and steam rooms, as well as a night club on site.

Junaid Ahmed and Jordan Brook were among the lucky stars picked to fly out to the Dominican Republic to film the new series.

A source said: “TOWIE are excited to bring Junaid into the fold, especially as he has close friendships with Dani, Yaz and Ella."

Elsewhere, James Locke was seen joining his co-stars at the airport after his future on the show was thrown into jeopardy after a fight with his girlfriend Megan Barton Hanson.

Police were called after James had a bust up with Megan at her hotel in central London in March.

James, 35, was escorted out of the hotel by security and police officers spoke to him regarding the incident.

He is now back filming for the hit ITVBe show and has flown out to the Dominican Republic today to start work on the next series.
