The Only Way Is Essex stars Sam Faiers and Joey Essex have claimed the new cast members are out to cause trouble, just to get attention.
The structured reality show is about to return to ITV2 for its eighth season, and the couple revealed they are not getting on with some of the new people who have just joined the show.
Sam said: "The new people coming are quite ruthless and they just want to get on telly. They don't even want to be your friend, they just want screen time. It's so not cool.

"The originals who have been there from series one, two and three are really close, we're like family. But when the new ones come in, it spices things up, but we don't have much respect for them. They back stab you."
There looks set to be a lot of tension with the new characters this series.
Joey agreed: "People are always after storylines in the show. It's more dramatic and they make the situation worse.
"They need to show some respect, and then you confront them and then they look even worse, and every single fan that watches TOWIE hates that person, they don't do themselves any favours.
"People who come on the show and give it, don't really make it, because they're too flash."
