The TOWIE star shows us round his pad (actually it's his parents'!)


TOWIE‘s Tom Pearce takes Now on a guided tour of his parents’ home in Chigwell.

He lives there with his sisters Alex and Lily and Charles the dog.

‘Until very recently I shared a flat with my old mate Joey Essex,’ Tom says.

‘Joey’s was good when it was a bachelor pad. The days of 3am pool parties are over for now!’

As we wander around the plush property, we find plenty of rooms he relax in after a day shooting TOWIE. Tom Pearce reveals that he winds down by getting sporty with his pals.

‘I like it back home. I’ve got my own living room where I chill out with my mates.

‘There’s beer in the fridge and the doors open on to my table tennis table in the garden,’ he tells us.

‘I’m unbeatable at table tennis – well, as long as I haven’t got a hangover. There’s also a great gym.’

The TV star has become very close to some of the boys on TOWIE. Tom Pearce often invites them over to work out with him.

‘Arg, Diags and Joey come round all the time. Arg tries out the gym, but he’s no good.

‘He eats too much and he’s lazy. l’ll say: “Let’s go for a run,” and he agrees, but after five minutes he’s finished.’

Tom’s Essex pad is very tastefully decorated.

The kitchen boasts sleek monochrome bar stools and an espresso machine, perfect for helping Tom wake up in the morning.

Other furnishings include a comfy brown sofa that’s dotted with a number of fluffy cushions.
