Towie Boys Aim For Pop Charts With 'Rat Pack' Group
James Argent, Tom Pearce and Dan Osborne making sweet music together...
Three of the male cast members from The Only Way Is Essex are launching a bid for pop stardom, it has been reported.
James Argent has long been known to be a wannabe crooner, but the scripted reality show veteran is apparently being joined by newer arrivals Tom Pearce and Dan Osborne in a Rat Pack-style trio.
The Sun claims that the threesome - calling themselves The Essex Boys - are being courted by more than one record label.
A source said: "There is a bidding war between Warner Music and Universal Records – and it seems Sony Music are in for the fight as well."
Their debut album will reportedly be called Fly Me To The Moon and features a mixture of standards and more modern tracks. A cover of Clean Bandit's Rather Be is said to feature on it.
