Wretch 32: I'm not cool enough for TOWIE
This article is from 2013.
Wretch 32 took a swipe at the stars of 'The Only Way is Essex' by saying he is not "cool enough" to land a cameo in the ITV2 reality show.
Wretch 32 says he's not "cool enough" to land a cameo in 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The 'Don't Go' hitmaker looks unlikely to team up with 'TOWIE' beauty Lauren Pope, who he was romantically linked to last year after they were spotted getting close at a London nightclub, as he insists they are just good friends and he doesn't have enough of an Essex vibe to star in the ITV2 reality show.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I don't think I'm cool enough to get a part in 'TOWIE'.
"But Lauren's cool, she's really down to earth. She's does some DJ-ing and that as well. She's a good mate, she's a cool girl."
But should 'TOWIE' bosses sign Wretch up for a cameo in the show then it would not be his first TV role after having an "incredible experience" when he appeared in an episode of 'Hollyoaks' in 2011.
He added: "I've been offered a few things but nothing I couldn't refuse. I made a small cameo on 'Hollyoaks' which was quite sick.
"They made an episode about some of the cast actually coming to a show of mine. Somebody called Bart [McQueen, played by Jonny Clarke] in the show comes up and tries to get his girlfriend back and tries to sing one of my songs and I chucked him off the stage.
"But it was an incredible experience and it was great to be a part of TV and I had great fun."
