BILLI Mucklow’s brother Sam is joining Towie paving the way for his girlfriend Nicole Bass to make a return, the Sun’s Bizarre column can reveal.
The hunk has flown out to Italy to join the cast in Sardinia but will not be joined by Nicole.
It comes five years after his older sister, who is engaged to West Ham striker Andy Carroll left the ITVBe show following a stint of six series.
A TV source said: “Him and Nicole have been together for five months now so if he impresses no doubt he’ll bring her with him.
“He’s been up for the show for a couple of years but the time hasn’t been right.
“He’s really good friends with Tommy Mallet and now is a good time for him to join.”
It also comes four years after Sam was banned from football in 2014 after an England fan had part of his ear bitten off.
He got into a row with the victim at the World Cup in Brazil.
Sam was banned for three years meaning he couldn’t watch the national team until last year.
At the time, a pal of ex-Towie star Billi said: “It is a huge embarrassment.”
Witnesses said the attack — in Sao Paulo after England’s 2-1 loss to Uruguay — came after Sam swore at victim Robert Farquharson.
Robert, then 24, lost a chunk of his left ear and was drenched in blood.
A video showed him emerging and dripping with blood and part of his ear missing.
Mucklow, who denied biting him but admitted being involved in a fracas, was detained on his return to the UK.
He got a three-year ban at London’s Thames magistrates.
Sam and Nicole have been going out for five months and shared gushing Instagram posts about each other including one of the pair kissing in which he says: "Four months feel like four days."
She appeared on Towie in series 15 and 16 before going on Ex On The Beach in 2016.
It was there when the ex of Lewis Bloor hooked up with Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers.
The romance was short-lived as only a few months later he started dating The Only Way Is Essex veteran Lauren Pope.
