The stars of hit reality show The Only Way Is Essex will star in a special live episode this Christmas.

But show bosses have reportedly put an alcohol ban in place in a bid to avoid any drunken mishaps by the cast who regularly appear out and about in different Essex night-spots in the ITV2 show.

Sam Faiers said: “I’m really excited but so so nervous. It’s going to be an amazing experience. Who knows what will happen... especially in Essex.”

Co-star Mario Falcone said the cast would be “completely out of our comfort zone”.

There will also be a one-off Christmas special on ITV2 the day before the live episode.

Towie’s Lucy Mecklenburgh admitted the nerves would get to her, saying: “I don’t know how we’re going to do it. It’s crazy. Personally I’m just really scared but I know it’s exciting too.”
