Who you gonna call? Not Essex...

An inspired piece of programming from ITV2 last night saw Most Haunted team up with The Only Way Is Essex. One show is a possibly fake reality-based show, and the other is The Only Way is Essex.

The cast were stuck in the tunnels of Coalhouse Fort in Tilbury, once used to defend the Thames. Mark, Arg, Harry, Joey, Sam and Amy were with jumpy presenter Yvette Fielding and spent 90 minutes squealing, whining and crying "Oh my God!", and generally displaying cowardice beyond the call of duty. As Ghostbusters they were about as effective as Mark would be on a women's studies course.

No wonder that poltergeist was angry - would you would want to see the Thames defended by TOWIE?

Best moments were Amy's sustained use of the F word when something grabbed her hair and Joey Essex's inadvertent impersonation of Shaggy in Scooby Doo, Yikes!
