The Only Way is Essex star has lifted the lid on what REALLY happens when the cast film the infamous party scenes

Still believe in magic? You probably shouldn't read any further.

Reality star and rapper Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell has revealed what goes on behind-the-scenes to make TOWIE happen and, not gonna lie, we are devastated.

Gatsby took to Instagram stories to share the no-holds-barred video about what really goes on and it's deeply unglamorous.

Jake's time on TOWIE was mainly characterised by his on / off relationship with Chloe Lewis and his alleged cheating on her. He finally (sort of) confessed that he'd done the dirty with Megan McKenna in a very emosh scene on a park bench. Ah, precious memories.

Bosses at ITVBe are notoriously tight-lipped about the making of the show, so Gatsby's film is a rare insight into how the show's legendary party scenes are filmed.

In the video, Gatsby shows an extremely glamorous Georgia Kousoulou dancing with her boyfriend and total dreamboat Tommy Mallet.

The camera then pans around showing that, rather than the bustling scenes we're shown with the magic of television, the club is actually almost empty other than a whole host of cameras.

We wouldn't be surprised if the night club scenes aren't even filmed at night after seeing this.

Why have you ruined the magic, Gatsby? WHY?

Gutted? We were.

How can we believe in anything any more?

Gatsby joined the cast of TOWIE in series 16 in 2015.

While his storyline in the current series (number 25 - and yet we haven't aged a day) seem to centre mainly around his and James 'Diags' Bennewith's weight loss and fitness journeys, he was previously best known for dating Ferne McCann and writing a helicopter based rap when she ended their relationship after one date.

He also had a Christmas fling with Chloe Sims that was, sadly, conducted off screen, although the fall out was not.

He also once knocked a takeaway pizza out of Pete Wicks' hands, although the two are now friends having made up over a (different) pizza.

But will this show secret OUTRAGE see him suspended from the show?

Doubt it. James Lock was found guilty of possessing class C drug and horse tranquilizer ketamine and he's still on the show.

The Only Way os Essex series 25 (25!) continues in Sundays at 9pm on ITVBe.
