It's all happening in TOWIE: Joey gets his pants hemmed, Chloe decides to have a wedding-themed birthday party because, well, she's 30 and not hitched, so why not wear the dress anyway? Or as she puts it, ''The saddest thing for me is that I don't have my prince. I'm 'firty'. I'm going to be an old bride.'' This is an overly constructed reality show that uses real people (if you don't count the fake boobs, tan, hair, nails and eyelashes) in manipulated situations to maximise ''entertainment''. Early seasons had an awful, can't-look-away fascination but season four is just dull.
