Sam Faiers 'to speak out against TOWIE bosses'

The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers may be asked to give a witness statement to support claims show bosses have infringed copyright.

Former Big Brother winner and friend of Faiers, Brian Belo, has filed a lawsuit against ITV and producers Lime Pictures alleging they stole the idea for the programme from his creation Totally Essex.

Belo even approached his pal and asked him to appear in his show, and Faiers featured in a pilot video of the potential series.

In her book Living The Essex Way, she writes, "Brian is upset as he got no credit for bringing the main characters to the table."

Faiers may now be called to support Brian in the case filed against the two companies.

A spokesperson for TOWIE tells The Sun, "Lime and ITV have stated previously that we believe our defence to the claim is strong and that it will be vigorously defended. That remains our position."
