The cast of 'The Only Way Is Essex' have been pelted with eggs during filming new scenes for the third series of the ITV2 show
The cast of 'The Only Way Is Essex' have been pelted with eggs during filming.
While the reality TV stars - including Joey Essex, Kirk Norcross and Sam Faiers - were shooting scenes for the third series of the ITV2 show, a number of jeering locals from a nearby working men's club started firing eggy missiles at them.
After Joey was almost pelted in the face, Kirk's beloved brand new Ferrari then fell victim to the prank, causing producers to whisk off the stars in a minibus to protect them from suffering further embarrassment.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "'TOWIE' has polarised opinion in Essex, with a lot of people not liking how it represents the county.
"These drinkers were obviously not too impressed by the pampered stars filming on their turf and they let them know about it by chucking eggs at them.
"Thankfully, none of them hit their targets and the stars were hurried away on minibuses."
'TOWIE' launched with a third season on Sunday, pulling in the reality TV show's highest-ever viewing figure of 1.8 million.
