TOWIE, short for The Only Way Is Essex, is another reality soap not too dissimilar to Geordie Shore and Made in Chelsea with its half-scripted and half-real drama.

However, unlike those shows, TOWIE focuses on the lifestyles of glammed-up boys ‘n’ gals from Essex. Honestly, that’s how they talk – if you know what I mean, like.

There are more spray tans and pearly white teeth than anything else in the ITV2 show, featuring the likes of Gemma Collins, Arg, Pete Wicks and Shelby Tribble.

Now heading into its 26th season for 2020, few reality TV shows have a fanbase as strong as The Only Way is Essex.
