The Only Way Is Essex, better known as TOWIE, shows what life in Essex is all about. This “reem” reality TV programme is sure to make you burst out laughing and cry yourself silly. Whilst the programme claims to be 100% real and totally unscripted, sometimes it’s hard to believe the sort of stuff the cast comes out with. The show’s popularity is down to the fact that it contains everything a soap lover could want: fights, relationships and plenty of humour.

The show is mainly set in Brentwood, where most of the stars live, but is also filmed all over Essex, allowing viewers to get a clear picture of the area.

Although the relationship plots are exciting, sometimes it seems that’s pretty much the only thing going on in Essex: one minute a couple will be on, and the next episode they’ll be off again. This means that the show may seem too one dimensional for some viewers.

However, if it sounds like your cup of tea, check out Joey ,Sam, Chloe, the two Laurens and The two Toms on ITV 2. If you visit the show’s website you can also comment on the show and keep up to date with the shenanigans going on in Essex today.
