The Only Way Is Essex 'Stars Are Revolting'
Reality show cast members reportedly unhappy over pay and conditions...
The "stars" of The Only Way Is Essex are reported to be mutinous over their pay and hours.
The Sun newspaper claims that a few members of the cast walked off the set during a 13-hour filming session in hot weather on Sunday.
Members of the cast get just £80 a day each from the production company - and are told that their celebrity status will help them supplement their income.
A show insider told the paper: "A lot of the cast members have been complaining about how hard they are worked for little money. On Sunday a lot of them put in a 13-hour day and later found their scenes had been dropped. There are a lot of unhappy stars at the moment."
There is said to be discontent that producers are focusing on the relationship between James "Arg" Argent and Gemma Collins, with other cast members feeling their scenes have been cut as a result.
The Sun claims Gemma Collins, Mario Falcone, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Billi Mucklow were involved in Sunday's filming, but does not confirm which of them walked out.
The ITV2 show began its sixth season at the weekend.
