I had heard of coaches bringing fans of the TV reality show THE ONLY WAY IS ESSEX to visit Brentwood's Sugar Hut and this afternoon I met some enthusiasts for myself. A group of lovely girls passed Mara Cottrell's home-made cake stall in the High Street and posed for me. Perhaps it was the huge curlers that gave them away! Surprised to learn of their long journey from the north to a rather chilly, rainy Brentwood - think they met up with some of the cast of TOWIE and seemed to be having fun - Mara's food (superb, as usual) was selling well. Do pay a visit on Saturdays to her stall (outside Marks and Spencer - she specialises in diabetic/non gluten fare).
