‘Into It' Podcast: Celebs Keep Schtum On Brexit, ‘TOWIE' Racism Scandal And (Another) Ricky Gervais Controversy
In this week's 'Into It', the team discusses some of the week's most controversial news stories, including 'TOWIE' star Chris Clark's racism scandal and the discussion ignited by Ricky Gervais about whether there's ever a limit to what's acceptable in comedy.
'The Only Way Is Essex', also known as 'TOWIE', began in 2010 charting the day to day lives of Mark Wright, Lauren Goodger, Sam Faiers, Kirk Norcross, Amy Childs, James Argent and Lydia Bright. It was a new breed of reality TV show in the style of MTV's The Hills, whereby many scenes are 'constructed' by the show's producers. It became an instant hit for ITV2, and while many faces have come and gone - including Gemma Collins, Joey Essex and Ferne McCann, viewers still keep tuning in to see the Essex-style romances, cat fights and fake tan disasters. Keep up to date with all the latest TOWIE news and gossip direct from the Sugar Hut, on this page.
