The TOWIE cast filmed for around three hours in the 16th century Suffolk inn before tucking into a pub lunch.

Brendan Padfield, owner of The Unruly Pig said it was an ‘eye opening experience.

He said: “The cast and crew virtually took over the restaurant and were filming for about three hours.

“By lunch time, customers began to arrive but loved it that the cameras were still rolling and the stars were still doing their thing.

“Some of the lines they came out with certainly turned a few heads and caused splutters of laughter.
