The Only Way Is Essex cast 'pelted with eggs' during filming

The Only Way Is Essex

It seems not every Essex resident is too fond of the impression the guys and girls from TOWIE are giving them... who knew? According to The Sun this morning, the cast of the hit ITV2 reality show were pelted with eggs when they began filming in a local pub this week.

Hunky Joey Essex and Kirk Norcross found themselves under fire from boozed up drinkers as they tried to record for Sunday's new episode in a working men’s club.

An insider revealed to the newspaper: "TOWIE has polarised opinion in Essex, with a lot of people not liking how it represents the county.

"These drinkers were obviously not too impressed by the pampered stars filming on their turf and they let them know about it by chucking eggs at them. Thankfully none of them hit their targets and the stars were hurried away onto minibuses."

The ITV2 series returned on Sunday night for a third series, receiving top ratings of 1.8 million.
