Ricky Rayment, 'Little' Chris Drake, James Lock and Dan Osbourne from cult reality show The Only Way is Essex get ready for a paintball challenge at Delta Force Paintball in Hemel Hempstead.

The only way was Hemel Hempstead for the cast of hit reality show TOWIE as they visited the town for an epic paintball battle.

Essex lads Ricky Rayment, ‘Little’ Chris Drake, James Lock and Dan Osbourne from the show brought along their mates and engaged in some friendly fire at Delta Force Paintball’s Oakwood base in Upper Bourne End Lane.

Cheeky chap Ricky said: “I really enjoyed it, we’ve had such a good day. I even got shot by my own teammates.”

Asked who would win in a tournament against rival programme Made In Chelsea, Ricky answered The Only Way Is Essex and warned: “We’re coming for you, Made In Chelsea.”

Delta Force senior marshal Elijah Taylor said: “They are a top bunch of lads, we loved having them at Delta Force Paintball and would be excited to see them return. Who knows, maybe a battle between them and Made In Chelsea is now on the cards.”
