Love them or hate them… you’ve heard of them: the stars of reality show The Only Way Is Essex (aka TOWIE). The ‘scripted’ reality show that follows the lives of a select group of tanned and preened Essex locals.

The cast might have found fame on the show, but they are now everywhere we turn…

From the Jungle to the Big Brother House; when every reality series rolls around, there’s bound to be an Essex character in the mix! TOWIE might have rocketed this bunch in to the public eye, but they’re not
moving out of it anytime soon, or so it seems…

But what were they up to before becoming Essex royalty? Let’s have a look back at where they came from, and now where they’re heading…

Let’s kick this off with the ultimate TOWIE diva: the GC. The original Essex princess with alllll the candy…

But, what did Gem do before finding fame as the the UK’s most well- known diva?

She was actually a used car sales lady; this somehow doesn’t surprise us as there’s no doubt she’s got the gift of the gab…

So, you’re probably thinking how did she go from a car showroom to our screens? Well, she was brought to the attention of TOWIE bosses by Amy Child’s Mum…

Her debut scene remained true to herself, which actually saw her selling a car to TOWIE original Kirk Nircross!

I owe you one, Mrs Childs…

In true GC style, the bosses were more than impressed and cast her her a permanent character on one of the biggest reality shows in the UK.
