The Only Way Is Essex second season is coming to end and there has not been a day for a while were someone has not mentioned this show to me… (Yes Suby Im talking to you; TOWIE lover :-P).. I’ve only watched a total of two episodes myself and the cringe factor is just too much at times… I cant see the massive fuss… Though there’s an hour long episode on Wednesday for the series finale… Might just have to catch it as too many (too many!) people I know will be doing the same…

Main cast Members Mark, Jessica, Lauren, Kirk, Amy and Sam

The Only Way Is Essex (often abbreviated as TOWIE) is a British reality television show based in Essex. It shows “real people in modified situations, saying unscripted lines but in a structured way.”… Before the show stars it states; “This programme contains flash cars, big watches and false boobs. The tans you see might be fake but the people are all real although some of what they do has been set up purely for your entertainment.”… haha enough to get attention i guess!

The only things the girls seem to do is shop, get tanned up and Vajazzled! For those who don’t know what Vajazzling is, like ‘shuttup’ you so need to know!.. Vajazzling in the UK has soared due to Amy Childs who mentioned the craze and her beauty therapist vajazzling ways..

Would you get one done?.. To be honest I don’t see the point.. Plus AS IF they wouldn’t come off randomly!! Getting one done to impress a guy only to have one or two jewels left still there by the end of the night because they’ve all rubbed off in your jeans would not be the Vajazzle your going for I’m sure… especially if the ones rubbed off had got stuck to other places…

TOWIE debuted on 10 October 2010. It follows the lives of young adults: Mark Wright, Jessica Wright, Kirk Norcross, Amy Childs, Lauren Goodger, Sam Faiers, James Argent, Lydia Rose Bright, Harry Derbidge and their friends. The show is primarily filmed in Brentwood, Buckhurst Hill, Loughton and Chigwell, close to London, and shows their lives as young, rich Essex boys and girls… I wouldn’t mind getting a brand new White Range Rover as a ‘treat’ from Dad.

The show is filmed only a few days in advance and Series 1 ran initially for four weeks, with two episodes a week. It is narrated by Denise Van Outen, who is from Basildon, Essex. The show has been described by the Daily Mirror as Great Britain’s answer to The Hills and Jersey Shore.

ITV have commissioned at least one more series after  series 2 which returned on 20 March 2011, airing Wednesday’s and Sunday’s. Series 3 will be screened in September 2011.

Maybe I’m just noticing it but there seems to be a serious reality fever going on at the moment.. I never really liked The Hills but I LOVE Jersey Shore.. GET CRAZY, GET WILD!!… That along with new British shows coming up Made in Chelsea and Geordie Shore and with Big Brother coming back to our screens in the summer… People watching people in reality on TV is at an Upmost high!

Series 2 of TOWIE finishes with the hour long season finale Wednesday 4th May, ITV2 10pm.
