It's handbags at dawn for the two TOWIE gangs

We all love a TOWIE spat and tonight’s episode features a fight with a difference. This time it’s not your usual cat fight in the nail salon or The Sugar Hut, oh no, tonight it’s the lads turn to go head-to head – and things get heated.

Warning: Expect spoilers below!

In sunday’s episode we saw the the ‘Reals’: Jake Hall, Tommy Mallet, Dan Edgar, and Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell challenge the ‘Alphas’: Pete Wicks, James Lock, Michael Hassini, and new boys on the block Jon and Chris Clark to the football match of the century, to determine the real ‘kings’ of Essex.

The lads engage in their battle of two halves in the super glam Essex setting of the erm, local sports centre. The rivalry soon takes hold and after a misplaced tackle, the two teams square up, with the tension palpable as the girls, their other havles and friends Danni Armstong, Chloe Lewis, Chloe Sims, Georgia Kousoulou and Kate Wright look on in horror.
