‘Only Essex’ TV show girls film at Chigwell pub

A SILVER Mercedes pulled into the King William IV pub in Chigwell last night, and a pair of perfectly tanned legs stepped out.

Amy Childs, star of reality soap The Only Way Is Essex, was joined by Sam Faiers, as they slinked in through the back door of the bar to start filming.

With sky-scraping eye-lashes, the pair beamed as they talked about families’ reactions to the show, which premiered on ITV2 on Sunday night.

“My family are loving it,” said Amy, 20. “Everyone’s loving it!”

The girls towered over me, both wearing three inch silver and beige platforms, and after a last minute hairspray and spruce-up in the car park of the High Road pub, they were whisked in by a camera crew to begin filming.

But Sam did briefly speak to me revealing that she had worked in an Ilford bank.

“I know Ilford!” she exclaimed, “I used to work in Lloyds TSB there.”
