The Only Way Is Essex – Deliciously Trashy

How do you know an Essex girl has had an orgasm?

 She drops her chips.

 Yes and that was the only thing I knew about Essex girl’s prior to watching the new reality show The Only Way Is Essex.

 Have Essex girls changed? I am not sure but they definitely have gone a little bit more upmarket. Well upmarket if you mean fake tan, fake tits, designer clothes, and glamour modelling.

 I have to confess I wanted to hate this show and I did for the first three minutes but after that I was hooked.

 The show follows seven Essex lads and chicks throughout their everyday lives, which involves beauty treatments, banal conversations, and going to nightclubs. OK not exactly high end reality TV but amusing nonetheless.

 The cast consists of six young, rich and beautiful socialites, nightclub promoter Mark and his aspiring pop-star sister Jessica Wright, fashionista Lauren Goodger, nightclub owner Kirk Norcross, beauty therapist Amy Childs and glamour model Sam Faiers.

 The question needs to be asked when did Essex boys get so cute?  Kirk the nightclub owner is particularly dishy, and I have developed a mini-crush on him.

 One thing that did irritate me at first was the show was obviously semi-scripted with the scenes set up and they were told what to talk about.

 The current plot if you can call it that, are ‘love rat’ Mark is adjusting to a newly single life since breaking up with his glamorous girlfriend Lauren after 9 ½ years; part-time model and beauty therapist Amy is meant to be embracing a new relationship with nightclub owner Kirk but prefers to hang out with her cousin Harry and gossipy best friend Sam. Meanwhile, Sam is causing problems for Lauren as she relentlessly flirts and pursues Mark.

 Yes trashy but oh so addictive much watch TV.

 The Only Way Is Essex premieres on Lifestyle You tonight Monday 24 January, at 8.30pm. However it will be repeated throughout the week. Watch it and tell me what you think.

I have been holding my breath, waiting for this one to start. This should deliver bubblegum tv in spades

Sounds like a British version of The Hills only with funnier accents.
