Episode six of The Only Way is Essex saw the TOWIE girls head on down to Brighton.

Of course, the Essex crew have a tendency to do things a little different than your average punter.

Deciding against any sand or sea action, why did they even go to Brighton?

The girls lounged around a picnic area while the boys were out playing with metal detectors along the beach.

Not really screaming seaside holiday vibes, is it?

A full 84 miles away from home, you’d think the Essex babes were keen to make the most of the beautiful beach.

However, Chloe Lewis didn’t seem so keen.

In fact, she was bewildered by the concept of the beach, asking the rest of the girls this dumbfounding question.

Chloe Lewis: “Do people swim in the sea?”

Yes.

Yes, Chloe, we do think people swim in the sea.

Fortunately, Yaz Oukhellou was on-hand to help clear things up, answering “yes, 100% when it’s hot”.

And that wraps up yet another episode of education for the TOWIE gang.

Yes, people do swim in the sea. It’s called swimming.
