Loose Women meet loose women...as TOWIE's Billie and Sam Faiers give verdicts on rival show Made In Chelsea

Partners in crime: Sam Faiers and sister Billie were on Loose Women today - and Billie gave her verdict on rival reality show Made In Chelsea

They're two of ITV's most-loved shows - and it was definitely a meeting of minds when Loose Women hosted sisters Sam and Billie Faiers from The Only Way Is Essex today.

The pair were on the show as fans still mourn last week's TOWIE series finale - and Billie gave her verdict on Channel Four's new posh version of the show.

Talking to show hosts Carol McGiffin, Andrea McLean, Cilla Black and Denise Welch, she said of last night's Made In Chelsea: 'The set up is very similar to The Only Way Is Essex, but it's completely different.

'The characters are so posh, their accents and everything! I couldn't stop laughing watching it.'

Meanwhile, her TOWIE co-star Amy Childs was even more dismissive of the show on her Twitter account. She said: 'These people need vajazzles and the ompa lumpa tans ....Turned off o dear. yawn xxxx'

As for being on Loose Women, it was a television show that got the thumbs up from the Faiers sisters.

Billie wrote on her Twitter afterwards: 'Loved being on loose women this morning !! Was great !! So glad they loved their goody bags from @MinniesBoutique!! Xx'

The sisters had given the four presenters goody bags from their new venture Minnie's - and were photographed with them afterwards.

The Faiers sisters also confirmed again that their dream customer at their new clothes shop would be Kate Middletopn, the new Duchess of Cambridge.

Sam said: 'Obviously, we're the complete opposite, we're Essex girls with an Essex boutique, and she's like royalty, but we've got some nice evening wear that she'd like.'

Billie revealed that their shop was now on the hen party trail too.

She said: 'In our shop we get loads of like people from up north, Scotland, lots of groups of girls coming down on hen weekends, they're coming in Minnie's then going up Sugar Hut that night.'

However, she mused: 'We have more fans out of Essex than we do in Essex, definitely.'

The second series of TOWIE finished last week with a raucous pool party, several bust-ups and plenty of chances to see Mark Wright’s he-vage.

Sam then immediately flew off to Mallorca for a few days holiday with new boyfriend Joey Essex.

With Sam in a bright pink bikini and Joey in multi-coloured swimming shorts, the pair could barely keep their hands off each other as they relaxed on the beach.

She then tweeted two pictures from the couple's short break, one of a heart in the sand containing both her and Essex's initials, and one of the pair grinning for the camera with their arms around one another.

Essex told his Twitter followers yesterday: 'Landed, wish I was still in spain! Was roasting this morning!!! :('

TOWIE is due back on our screens later this year.

Made In Chelsea meanwhile, which follows west London socialite Caggie Dunlop and her group of friends, is on this Monday at 10pm on E4.
