TOWIE cast kick off filming for Series 7... and get parking tickets!

The Only Way Is Essex

The cast of The Only Way Is Essex kicked off filming for the seventh series yesterday, but it didn't go all too well.

The group were filming in Brentwood Essex, but Tom Pearce and James "Diags" Bennewith had a bad start to the new series as they ended up receiving parking fine before even a single take was complete!

Meanwhile Gemma Collins and Billie Faiers held up filming after running late, eventually turning up with their make up and outfits half complete.

Yet they still managed to remember to buy a parking ticket

The four were joined by lovebirds Mario Falcone and Lucy Mecklenburgh, who are currently planning their wedding.

It was confirmed earlier this week that [cat c="the only way is essex"]TOWIE[/cat] would be back on ITV2 on September 30.

As always, the series will be filmed close to transmission ensuring everything that happens remains as dramatic and explosive as the previous episode.

Meanwhile TOWIE's Gemma claimed this week that a movie spin-off of the ITV2 reality series was in the works.

Gemma was quoted by The Sun as saying this week: “Yeah it’s gonna happen. If Sex And The City can do it, so can we.”

She continued to tell the newspaper yesterday: “It’ll be fab, everyone will love it, why not?

“We don’t know where it will be filmed, we don’t know when, but I mean we’re just normal people with crazy lives.

“Some people only go out on birthdays and Christmases. We’re out every night of the week.”
