The Only Way Is Essex is 'setup', claims the show's very own Mikey Fisher

The Only Way Is Essex

The Only Way Is Essex faced yet more claims that the reality show was faked and setup last night, this time from one of the programme's very own cast members Mikey Fisher. The only Northerner who appears on the show slammed the reality telly hit as scripted and phoney.

According to The Sun, 24-year-old Fisher claimed most of the action in clubs, bars and nail salons is a "set up".

He told the tabloid: "You get told what to say and what to do. It is a letdown for viewers who want to think it's real life."

The youngster from Merseyside picked up a role in show because he's friends with Jack Tweed, best mate of the programme's top man Mark Wright.

Last night the show's makers were quick to downplay Mikey's comments, calling them "completely unfounded".
