The last episode of the 11th series was screened on ITV2 last night, having been filmed at the popular Suffolk wedding venue earlier this week.

Stars include Sam Faiers and her pregnant sister were seen arriving at the wrap party, which was hosted by Jessica Wright and her partner Ricky Rayment, bedecked in sequined gowns and glistening head gear.

There were the usual TOWIE dramas with a row breaking out between Fran Parham and Ferne McCann.

Woodhall Manor, in Woodhall Drive, Sutton, near Woodbridge, is a Grade II* listed building and has played host to thousands of Suffolk weddings over the years.

The oldest parts are medieval, with major renovations undertaken in 1566. The hall was considerably enlarged in the 16th Century and given a loose Tudor feel.

Suffolk brides were last night tweeting about the shpw, with Michelle Birch saying: “Accidentally cried watching #Towie tonight...only because I saw my wedding venue though #Memories #HappiestDayOfMyLife.”

And Charley Jade Gray said: “@WHManor is looking gorgeous on @OnlyWayIsEssex!!!”

Did you see the show?

• In December 2012 the cast filmed scenes at a garden centre in Thetford.

And in February 2012, the cast were at Walton filming.



  • @dinosaur detective: The reason is probably that it was not written by an EA reporter but bought in by a business desperate to fill the pages of two Siamese-twin newspapers.

  • So far as I can see, the EA reporter is not named. Too embarrassed to admit watching this cheaply produced purile rubbish? 'Stars' give me a break!
