Blonde beauty Chloe told viewers her friend first told her about the show before it had even been linked to a channel.

"My friend at the time told me they were going to make a show, like The Hills but in Essex, and she was like, ‘You’ve got to go for it’ and I was like, 'No way, I can’t do that', at that point I was scared about things like that," she said.

The TV personality continued: "She told me I was going to do it and ring up the producers, she had the number for them, I was like, ‘No I can’t call up the producers,’ and I remember we had a row in the kitchen and she just dialled the number and gave me the phone.

“So I had my meeting with them and it went well, I’d had a few glasses of wine so I was drunk and a bit loose lipped and they said, ‘Right, can you send us a weekly blog of what you get up to, any dates, anything funny, anything goes wrong, just send it to us.’”

"I was rocking on in like Cannes and St. Tropez, places I couldn’t afford to be! It was amazing."

However, she soon realised she would have missed an opportunity if she didn't take the job to be on TOWIE as she went on: "I was in Luton Airport, and all of the magazines were full of TOWIE, and I thought, ‘F**k, what have I done?’

"Then one day I got a phone call and they said that TOWIE was trying to get hold of me, and asked if they could forward on my number.

"I said yeah and was hoping that maybe they wanted to bring me on, and it was, they were contacting everyone that didn’t take the part in the first series and asked me if I was interested."

Clearly ecstatic by the offer, Chloe said: "Hell yes!" and she's now one of the longest standing members of the programme.
