Rachel McGrath

Am I proud of being from Essex? No. I would love to be, and I fully support everyone reclaiming the label and using it positively, but I can't hand on heart say that I am proud. And that has nothing to do with me, or the lexicographers in charge of the dictionary, it's everyone who has falsely applied the stereotype.

Campaign Diary: John Meets Joey

John Pienaar | Posted 13.06.2015 | UK Politics
John Pienaar

No small feat, considering the star of the hit reality show The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) was surrounded by a small army of camera operators, producers, fixers, publicists and, for all I know, food tasters and hair-gel bearers , when he joined my guests and me in the studio and talked politics for 15 minutes.
