TOWIE’s Maria Fowler goes head-to-head with Ann Widdecombe

TOWIE’s Maria Fowler goes head-to-head with Ann Widdecombe

The Only Way Is Essex’s Maria Fowler has proved she’s not just a pretty face by going up against an ex-member of Parliament.

She was on This Morning debating against former MP Ann Widdecombe, who’s currently calling for binge drinkers to be named and shamed in newspapers.

Maria – a girl who likes to party – argued that people who’ve had a little too much ‘pop’ shouldn’t be ridiculed, and an impressive 71% of This Morning’s audience agreed when asked in a poll.

The former TOWIE star joked that she found it funny when pictures of her looking a little worse-for-wear turn up.

“If I go out and have a few too many and it's in the papers or online or whatever, like I might have a warped sense of humour but I think it's quite funny,” she said.

Getting a little more serious, Maria also branded Ann as out of touch.

“I think the views of having pictures in the paper is quite out of touch to have.”

She also opened up about getting arrested four years ago for being drunk and disorderly.

Ann’s night out at the Sugar Hut

In an attempt to sway Ann’s opinion on binge drinking, Maria invited her to join her and her pals on a night out.

We wonder if that would include a makeover - just imagine Ann getting a spray tan and a vajazzle…

“I think what you should do is come out on a night with me. I'll show you how it works, and we'll sit down and we'll re-discuss and re-assess,” Maria said.

Not seeming too keen, Ann shook her head and said, “No thank you. No ta - thanks very much for the offer.”

Maria hit Twitter after the program to show her appreciation for the public’s support: “Haha glad u enjoyed it! Didn't get much of a word in but glad the public agrees with me! Ha x.”

So whose side are you on - Maria's or Ann's?
