TOWIE's Maria and Lucy furious at credit snub
Maria Fowler and Lucy Mecklenburgh are furious they have been left out of the opening credits for the new series of 'The Only Way Is Essex' because they think they play an important part in the ITV2 reality show
Maria Fowler and Lucy Mecklenburgh are furious they have been left out of the opening credits for the new series of 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The sexy brunettes have been in the series since it aired last year and think they deserve a place on the titles because they play a big part in the ITV2 reality show.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Both girls are very angry, especially Maria, who likes to think she is one of the most 'press-worthy' people on the show.
"And Lucy feels she gets set up for humiliation in some situations and has given the producers enough to be in the opening credits."
However, bosses with refused to budge, with an ITV source adding: "'TOWIE' is about a community, not specific people."
To make matters worse Joey Essex has made it in to the opening credits, despite only joining the cast in series two.
During the last run, Maria was labelled "an extra" during an argument with Kirk Norcross, while Lucy has been involved in a love triangle with former couple Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger since the launch of 'TOWIE'.
