TOWIE: rapper Tinchy Stryder to be made a permanent Essex cast member?
After making a cameo appearance in The Only Way Is Essex summer special, The Only Way Is Marbs, it would seem that Brit rapper, Tinchy Stryder, fancies himself as the next Mark Wright as he expresses a desire to join the cast full-time!
Stryder was seen partying with the likes of show favourites Joey Essex, on board a yacht showering the girls with champagne during a ‘spray party’ whilst staying at the same Marbella resort that the cast were using to film the summer special.
Now all back on dry UK land, Stryder has revealed to MSN how he quite liked the idea of becoming more of a show regular, if bosses agreed.
He said: “They can make me a show regular if they like. I’d be well on for that. I think I’d do well on the next series. The night basically ended up being my induction as the new member of TOWIE!”
The rapper went on to discuss how his cameo came about, explaining:
“I was visiting mates in Marbella and got lured to this crazy party. All the TOWIE crew were out there getting on it, spraying it everywhere, jumping in the pool… and they were like ‘eh man, get in here, party with us.’ They crew is wild – they’re a really fun, wild bunch.
“We were all staying in the same hotel and my mates were well up for hanging out with them. The conversation led to the next series and we put some ideas out there. It could be fun!”
Unbeknown to all of us, it turns out that Tinchy was already friends with some of the cast before the show was filmed:
“I knew a few of them from the show, and Lauren Pope and I have been mates for a while now. Mark Wright I know through his DJing in Ibiza last year too, so we’ve a close bond. But Joey is the man, definitely.
“He’s a really cool guy and he can ‘out party’ them all, combined. He just has this thirst for life, and for fun, and for making people happy. He’s a great guy and a good mate, I speak to him quite a bit.”
