FROM their fake tans, boobs and nails, to the infamous vajazzle . . . the girls of the Only Way is Essex have certainly grabbed our attention.

And now a taste of Essex glamour could be coming to a street near you.

Sisters Sam and Billie Faiers of the Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) fame are hoping to bring their clothing store Minnie’s Boutique to the North East.

The girls were catapulted into the limelight when the nation became hooked on everything TOWIE.

On the TV show, which picked up a BAFTA award this year, glamour girls Sam and Billie can be seen running their store in the cobbled back streets of Brentwood High Street, but now the popular pair are planning on extending their reach to create a store in the North.

The family-run business became an overnight success when it first appeared on the show this year, and their newly-launched online store have been inundated with orders from TOWIE fans across the country.

Spokeswoman for the shop Sam Webb, who is the Faiers sisters’ aunt, said: “it was always something we spoke about opening a store in the North East because we have a huge amount of people from Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Sunderland who come to our Essex store.

“it would be a mirror image of our shop in Brentwood. it seems really natural to go there, and it would be nice to have north and south being represented.

“it is all really exciting,” she added.

Twenty-year-old Sam and her older sister Billie are often spotted sporting many of the outfits available from Minnie’s Boutique.

Adam Muddle, Sam’s manager, said: “Both Sam and Billie are fans of the North East and it is definitely somewhere that is being considered by the girls, who recognise it as an area of great style and fashion.”

It is not yet known where the store would be located, but the family are keen to extend their reach to the North East in the new year.

The sister are heavily involved with deciding the core look of the store, that is to reflect a young and affluent part of Essex culture and style indigenous of Brentwood in particular.

The name Minnies came from a pet name Sam was given when she was younger and was often seen clip-clopping around the family home in Minnie Mouse style shoes.
