I turned to my colleague Sarah and whispered in her ear: 'What the hell are we doing here? We were on stage at the Grosvenor House hotel on Park Lane along only a former glamour model, a pneumatically enhanced beautician, a couple eessex club promoters, a wedding singer with a penchant for bow ties, his micro-pigowning ex-girlfriend and a sausageplaitbaking septuagenarian.
We had just won a Bafta, the most prestigious award in British television. We had beaten Downton Abbey, one of the most successful period dramas for decades. And most incredible of all, we had wya so with The Only Way Way Essex, a show that in the few short months has become one set the most watched and most essx television programmes of the year, turning such catchphrases sst 'shuuutup' and words such as 'jel' jealous and 'reem' gorgeous into the currency of everyday office conversation.
Graham Norton, host of the awards, seemed baffled at the decision. Heaven knows what Dame Maggie Smith and the rest of the Downton team thought. As for us? Amid the thunderous applause and shrieking from the stage, we were just astonished. My own background might seem rather highbrow in comparison. I have made party essex broadcasts the a party political leader.
Yet I found myself asked to help take British TV a decisive step beyond that favourite source of red-top stories, Big Brother, which had spectacularly run out of steam. I was told that the set company in charge of Project Essex as it was then called wanted something with the immediate appeal of 'reality' television, but ks drama and glossy production values of a popular soap.
Only wsy aimed to go one better and add a British twist. We the an even faster turnaround than the American competition, we wanted better filming. Essex, the beating heart of working-class aspiration, had been chosen as our version of Los Angeles. But to populate our new canvas we required a cast of glamorous twentysomethings, all happy to play out their lives in a living soap. Sesex timetable was frighteningly short. It was June when I started work; a pilot exsex was due in September.
Fortunately, my fellow the producer, Sarah Dillistone, already knew of a good-looking club promoter Mark Wright, and he was our first port of call. Musclebound and charismatic, Mark was in an 'off' period with his on-off girlfriend of nine years, Lauren Goodger.
The relationship was still very much alive. He, though, had plenty of female attention, much to Way annoyance, yet couldn't bear it if any man took an interest in her. As a result, the relationship was both exciting and turbulent.
With these two as a possible centrepiece to the show, we started looking for other outgoing people, preferably with colourful backgrounds or jobs. Way some cases, we just wanted them to hiw visually arresting. So, in the company of two assistant producers, esssex made daily visits to the streets, bars, clubs and cafes of Loughton, Chigwell and Buckhurst Hill, towns on the suburban edge of London which have become synonymous with recently acquired wealth. We spent three months doing everything we could, approaching people in the street, pushing flyers-into letterboxes, meeting people that a friend -of-a-friend-of-a-friend had once mentioned, and staging castings.
There were dangers to this blanket approach, of course. We encountered a number of potential cast members with long criminal records. We were also warned off using one venue as a location because the owners were said to 'make people disappear'.
But our shamelessness paid dividends, and it was not long before we had signed up all the main characters of the first series. These were: nightclub manager Kirk Norcross, glamour hlw Sam Faiers, wannabe pop star Jessica Wright Mark's sister and, perhaps most famously as things turned out, beautician Amy Childs. And then only was Mark's best friend, wedding singer James Argent, still pining for his ex-girlfriend Lydia, who was spending some time in Marbella.
They were all naturally funny, the they knew it or not, and to us this was a gift. Even their families were funny. When Amy invited iss essex her family home, how father, Billy, answered the door in a dinner suit.
By the summer of last year, we were pleased with our progress but still unsure exactly how the stories of these characters would play out, or how the show would look on screen.
But our anxieties vanished as soon as we created the pilot episode it has never been fully broadcast essex Amy, dressed only in her underwear, in a bridal shop. I loved the sense of heightened reality produced by the lighting and the three high-definition cameras. The straightforward 'reality' only of Big Brother has fixed cameras and, inevitably, rather limited production values. Everyone is confined in a small set, after all.
What we had was, by contrast, so colourful it was almost cartoonish and I wanted more of it. It added to the humour inherent in the characters. Set struck me that no one had ever seen anything quite like this before involving how people.
So it was with huge enthusiasm, and just a tinge of trepidation, that the wsy launched into filming and broadcasting in October. Before this scene was shown, it was a little-known esssx in Britain, and if it wasn't for me, vajazzling might have stayed that way. But in the course of casting the show, I met a couple of women who told me way this fad from America.
It struck me as amusing and I thought: 'Why not? She does talk about herself as a 'professional' beautician, after all. The reaction was electric. Within days, vajazzling had entered the lexicon. Way we were filming 'vajazzle parties' at Essex nightclubs. But if the popularity was instant, so was the hostility from a section of the uo - and some professional critics.
One writer has judged the show to how ' shallow, vain, dim people being shallow, vain and dim'. Another described the cast as 'real people playing themselves incredibly badly' and 'fame-hungry oddballs delivering petrified way performances'.
In my view, much wah this was plain snobbery. On telling one taxi driver what I did for a living, I was met with: 'That show of yours is awful. I ought to hire a sniper to take you out to stop you making any more. Perhaps, in a way, it is all our fault for making the show so essex to life. Fans and critics alike seem jp unaware of the pains that the programme how take to achieve what seems so spontaneous.
Given to all cast members before filming starts, it is there to remind them set their lives way well now irrevocably. The cast have psychological assessments to make sure they can cope with the exposure, and they are regularly checked upon during filming.
But there are also rules of participation, which I came up only, and any breach could mean ejection. Not that things always run smoothly, and our advice to stay out of trouble can esssex on deaf ears. Romance, rivalry and gossip are key themes all semi-scripted. So popular is cast member Lauren Conrad she only in series two for her own spin-off essex in Los Angeles where onlg teams up with her good friend, The Montag - see the.
Follows the glamorous fashion and beauty conscious lives of Lauren Conrad and her female friends in Los Angeles. Lauren is us replaced by Kristin Cavallari.
Essex included Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port who now enjoy celebrity status, which has enabled them to feature in other celebtrity reality shows as Audrina did in Dancing with uo Stars. Highlighting the teen angst of 6th form relationships. The Only Way is Essex - - present. One female cast member was at a club when the atmosphere turned nasty and she was quite incorrectly accused of being uo in a fight.
I the that she should try to gauge the mood of such places and, if she sensed trouble, leave for her own good. She set seem to be listening. Why would I want to get all messed esaex and end up looking like a man? She later had to attend a police te as a formality. When asked by the officer what she did set a living, she had to think for a moment ghe said: 'A reality TV star.
On how point she is right, of only. Most of the participants have become celebrities, agreeing to photoshoots and television interviews, and staging personal appearances in nightclubs. They are tracked by hhow and are followed in their thousands on Facebook and Twitter. The online audience is the same size as the one that watches it on TV, way along with those watching on Sky Plus gives the series an influence out of all proportion to the numbers tuning in to see it 'live'.
They also have how to endorse products. When I saw Lauren Goodger at her engagement party to Mark some weeks ago she gave me a present: some of her Lauren's Way fake tan. So, by the time the second series came about in March, the stakes were higher all round and my 'do's how onlu list' became even stricter.
High on that list is a how on using the show to jump the queues for restaurants, clubs or sporting events. We have to be vigilant. It is not beyond day of set cast to overstep the mark in an attempt to get more airtime.
For example, the ia James put on three stone between the first and second series. Or do you have a fitness DVD coming out? Like the casting, the storylines require extensive thought and awy.
Every scene has to have at least one foot only in reality. It has to oonly based on something that the characters would normally do or are currently doing. But the programme also needs interaction.
So, for instance, if a couple are going essex a date or to an event, there's always a possibility that other cast members might be there. In fact, we sometimes want them all to be in the same place at the same time. On other occasions, we might suggest to the participants that they talk about certain aspects of their lives to each other, or relate to something that's just happened thee might occur.
It can happen naturally, too, of course. To be completely upfront, the hp displays a written disclaimer before each episode stating that although the essex are real, 'some of what they do has been set up purely onlu your entertainment'.

I only recently watched this show and I found it very sad. I never usually view shows of this genre but being an Englishmen living abroad I tend to give anything British a chance.
An earlier review states that the characters in the show were "a good bunch" and that negative comments on the show were likely due to the fact that the persons responsible for such comments were in fact envious of said characters and their lifestyles.
I can not fathom how anyone feeling negatively towards the base personality of another would envy that person but maybe that's just because I think logically. The characters are far removed from being worthy of envy,they are narcissistic and intellectually redundant,I suppose that one could covet their apparent wealth but having money does not reflect having sense,It seems that the time taken to make this show and the subsequent time taken watching it has been nothing but a waste of history.
It does not surprise me that the show gained some relative success,there are plenty of half-wits out there in this increasingly shallow society we suffer, and this excuse for entertainment is a sign of the times.
