TOWIE appears to have teased a new blossoming romance between James “Diags” Bennewith and Angel Bo Stanley as the duo kissed during Thursday’s Christmas special.
Angel, 23, caught the eye of Diags, 30, during the TOWIE Halloween special with the pair going on two dates since then as they explored their feelings for each other.
During Thursday’s episode, Diags admitted their second date had “went well” but that he wasn’t sure if there was much of a “romantic spark” and that they hadn’t kissed yet.
Chloe Sims urged her friend to “move on” while James Lock encouraged him to give it one more chance and suggested that he bring her to Dan’s Winter Festival.

During the event, the duo kept being grilled as to whether they had kissed yet and how their budding romance was going.
And it wasn’t long until Diags decided to pull a romantic move as he stood under a piece of festive mistletoe and asked: “What do you do under mistletoe, what is it again? Merry Christmas…”
Diags and Angel then shared their first kiss as they enjoyed a passionate smooch before pulling away and giggling.
It remains to be seen whether the duo have continued their romance since the TOWIE Christmas special and it’s likely fans will be updated in the new series.
This isn’t Angel’s first foray into reality TV, and as many viewers rightly clocked she previously appeared on screens on another show.
Angel was also part of the cast of ITV’s Absolutely Ascot which aired in for two series in 2018.
