'TOWIE's Maria Fowler And Lauren Goodger At War

TOWIE glamour girls Lauren Goodger and Maria Fowler are at war after falling out whilst filming Christmas special The Only Way Is EsseXmas.

In the special, Maria was shown planning a girly night in with friend Billi Mucklow in which she said she wanted "no egos" to be invited - in a sly dig at Lauren.

Later on in the episode, Maria and Billi were joined by fellow castmembers Lydia Bright and Lucy Mecklenburgh and they discussed Lucy's boyfriend Mario Falcone going on a trip to Lapland with Lauren.

Lucy was worried about what might happen when the Lapland group took a dip in a hot tub, exclaiming: "I should be there!"

Maria was quick to dispel any worries, saying: "But to be fair, Lauren in a bikini or you in a bikini? If anything it's gonna repel him."

Former Page Three stunner Maria later took to Twitter to stoke the fire surrounding the feud. She wrote: "Haha don't even start sayin I'm bein bitchy when there is a LOT you don't know!!!!!!!

"Lmao so the massive fight wasn't on................ Wow.... If people knew the reason behind things that are said #YouWouldntJudge...."
