Cast of The Only Way Is Essex set to release record for Christmas No. 1 bid!

The Only Way Is Essex

The stars of The Only Way Is Essex are reportedly planning to release a cover single in order to hit the top spot this Christmas and beat The X Factor. According to The Sun, the group aren't sure whether to do their own song or a cover of Wizzard's I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday.

However TOWIE's Maria Fowler seemingly felt they had what it takes to beat Simon Cowell in the charts, replying when asked: "Yeah we would - I'm confident of that."

Speaking the tabloid, she added: "It would be all of us! Have a Happy Reem Christmas or something like that. That would be amazing."

Recently Joey Essex has reportedly signed his own record deal, with first single Reem set for later this year.

James "Arg" Argent is also looking to expand from the ITV2 reality series, saying: "I'm looking to pursue a music career. Rod Stewart would be a dream to collaborate with."

The Only Way Is Essex returns to ITV2 in the autumn.
