The Only Way Is Essex (often abbreviated as TOWIE)

is a BAFTA award-winning ‘scripted reality’ television show based in Essex, England – and is made by Lime Pictures Ltd for UK digital itv2.


It shows “real people in modified situations, saying unscripted lines but in a structured way.”

The show is filmed just a few days in advance before it airs. It is narrated by Denise van Outen, who is from Basildon, Essex. The show has been described by the Daily Mirror as Britain’s answer to The Hills and Jersey Shore.
