TOWIE Cast Members In Rylan Quit Threat

Kirk Norcross and Mario Falcone say they'll walk if he joins cast full-time...

The Only Way Is Essex cast members Kirk Norcross and Mario Falcone have threatened to leave the scripted reality show if The X Factor star Ryland Clark joins the cast.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Mario insisted that he didn't mind the Essex singer appearing as a one-off - but not full time.

He said: "If he comes on Monday's live show, that's fine because it's all for charity, but if he comes on TOWIE as a main character, I'm leaving. We hate him. He's a douche bag."

Kirk was slightly less insulting, adding: "I've met Rylan before and he's actually a really nice boy but when people think of Essex they just think of the abbreviation, the 'Shut-up', the 'Oh my god' - that was all Amy Childs and we don't want that."

And Mario chimed in: "We've moved away from that. I don't think he'd benefit the show. Bobby and Joey said they'd leave as well."

But their fellow cast member James "Arg" Argent was sceptical about their chat.

He said: " "I would love to see Rylan on TOWIE - not only that, if Mario and Kirk say they'll leave if that happens, I'm telling you now that's bulls**t, because they wouldn't!"

Rylan might not even want to join TOWIE though, as his media career is already taking off.
