I went to the same school as Denise, and my best mates dad was Russell brands teacher, yeah we all know each other in essex.

Frank Lampard was an essexian, as was Alan Davis, Terry Venables, Joe Pasquale, John Terry and Noel Edmonds. I only mention these because I have tenuous links to them all.

I've been to England quite a few times and I'm practically addicted to BBC America, so I've heard a lot of those "Essex girl" jokes, but that's a lot of popular people from Essex.
