Elma, 29, looks to have already made pals with the rest of the TOWIE clan, and could be seen enjoying a day out at the beach alongside Courtney, Amber and Chloe.
A clip of the foursome was shared on the official TOWIE Instagram account, alongside the caption: "OMG the rumours are true! #TOWIE is back and we're in the Dominican Republic to kick things off! We've got newbies, old faves and some major drama already Who's excited?!"
Elma, who starred on Love Island series five, reportedly arrived as a surprise, with producers "really excited" about adding her to the cast.
A TOWIE insider told The Sun: “Producers are really excited to throw Elma into the mix. She is a bundle of fun and relentlessly energetic. Elma is close friends with Amber Turner, and also Dan Edgar and Diags – who she has enjoyed some flirty nights with in the past.
"She is also good pals with Courtney Green and Chloe Meadows who have also joined the cast out in the Dominican to film the upcoming series.”
She and fellow newcomer Jordan, who works as a male hairstylist, could be seen looking cosy in one sun-soaked snap, while Dani Imbert posed alongside new star Junaid in another photo.
While there's been three new additions to the cast, there were also three stars who were noticeably absent from the trip – Chloe, Demi and Frankie Sims.
The trio are not filming in the Dominican Republic with the rest of their co-stars amid reports that there has been "disagreements" regarding the newcomers.
An insider told The Sun: "Not everyone's happy about the new arrivals. It's ruffled a few feathers behind the scenes. There's been some big disagreements off-camera that resulted in the sisters deciding to pull out of going on the trip two days before they were meant to fly out.
"Every year the three sisters are top of the list of the returning cast. They're the biggest characters who bring the sex appeal, glamour and good storylines. Everyone's talking behind the scenes about why they're missing."
Chloe Brockett is also missing from the holiday, but she has addressed her absence on Instagram and told fans: "Getting loads of messages.. I will be back to @towie once filming begins in England".
Those who have been holidaying in the Dominican Republic have been keen to document the trip on Instagram, and have continued to share a string of sunny photos with their followers.
The cast are residing at the swanky all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana, which boasts a casino, multiple restaurants and numerous luxury suites.
Amber, 28, has been busy showcasing her stylish outfits on social media, while Courtney, 26, recently wowed fans when she shared a bikini snap.
She beamed as she held onto a pineapple in the photo and modelled a blue patterned two piece, writing: "Back where i belong".
Fans were quick to compliment her, with one person writing: "You look amazing!" as another added: "Looking unreal," alongside a lovestruck emoji.
