The haves vs. the chavs: The Only Way Is Essex”s Amy Childs brands Made In Chelsea a “pile of rubbish”

When The Only Way Is Essex first hit our screens last year, there were many who weren”t sure of its potential to be a successful show.

But now, after two hugely popular seasons and a third in the pipeline, TOWIE is one of the most talked-about programmes on television.

So when E4 launched Made In Chelsea earlier this month, it was expected it would follow in the footsteps of the Essex-based reality show – but the reviews it received were less than complimentary.

“Pile of rubbish”: The Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs has poured scorn on Made In Chelsea

And while there is room for both shows on our screens, The Only Way Is Essex”s Amy Childs has now come forward to label the show “a pile of rubbish”.

She wrote: “I didn’t warm to any of the characters at all and thought they were all very posh. I reckon they could all do with a spray tan, some fake eyelashes and a vajazzle!”

Amy then added: “And who goes to a rowing club I”d rather go to Sugar Hut every time!”

It had earlier been thought Amy and Made in Chelsea”s Caggie Dunlop had embarked on a war of words on Twitter, but it has since been revealed the Caggie Twitter account is a fake.

The fake “Caggie” kicked things off by writing: “Just seen @MissAmyChilds comments on us. She says we need a vajazzle. Darling, at least my vajazzle will have real diamonds!!”

“It”s us against the Essex crew, the “haves” vs the “chavs” #madinchelsea.”

They need vajazzles: Amy said the E4 show would be livened up with fake tans and vajazzles

Amy then replied on her verified Twitter account: “Haha, people are getting jel!”

But it wasn”t only Amy who took offense at the fake Caggie”s comments, Lydia Bright also wrote on her Twitter that she was unimpressed with the war of words.

Retweeting Caggie”s comments, Lydia tweeted: “Now that”s not nice unfair and uncalled for >> “@CaggieDunlop: It”s us against the Essex crew, the “haves” vs the “chavs” #madinchelsea.”
