Am I the only one in the UK who just doesn’t get TOWIE?

Have your say

I think I may be the only person in the country who doesn’t quite get the fascination with TOWIE – The Only Way is Essex.

I’ve tried to get into this TV show after meeting one its stars, Gemma Collins, at bootcamp a few weeks ago. But I really don’t understand the hype – let alone the fact that it won a Bafta, voted for by the public!

And what I really don’t get is everyone’s obsession with Amy Childs – the fiery, redheaded one.

She was in the papers for the umpteenth time this week over ‘talks’ at ITV, which means she’s probably going to get her own ITV2 show all about her.

She is signed to Can Associates, who represent Peter Andre and Kerry Katona – both of whom have their own ITV2 shows.
