Take a look at TOWIE stars' multi-million pound mansions

It's been 10 years since The Only Way Is Essex first hit TV screens, bringing with it a conveyor belt of reality TV stars and briefly altering the vernacular of Britain's youngsters (remember when vajazzles were reem?).

And while the cast of past and present have made names for themselves on the enduring hit that is TOWIE, they've also amassed huge fortunes that have allowed them to snap up multi-million pound Essex properties.

The homes, which sit in some of the most exclusive postcodes in Essex, boast the fixtures and fittings expected for celebrity abodes, including swimming pools, gyms, basketball courts, and sprawling gardens.

Speaking of her home, she gushed: 'This is gorgeous it's the dream really isn't it washing up whilst looking out at that view, I'll be doing the washing up every single day.'

Ferne went on to admit that in her previous flat she didn't do her washing, so she couldn't wait to have a utility room in her new home.

'I'm gonna have my very own utility room, actually going to do my own washing now! My mum's not gonna pick it up from me,' she added.

Back in September, Jess Wright gave viewers a glimpse into her swanky £1million home, filled with spacious rooms, glittering chandeliers and a large walk-in closet.
