Witham: Pug puppy makes TOWIE debut

First published in News

The Only Way is Stardom for one little pug who appeared in the opening episode of TOWIE.
Achmed, the three-month-old pug, appeared in two shots of the The Only Way is Essex on Sunday evening.
Owner Sara Dillard, 49, of Bramble Road, Witham, had taken him along to the filming with her 19-year-old daughter Sammy, who appears as an extra in the ITV2 series.
When the filming crew heard the cute little pug was waiting in the car with Sara, they asked to include him in two shots, one with Sammy and another of him popping out of a handbag.
Mrs Dillard, troupe leader of The Innovation Majorettes, said: “He’s a little star.
“It wasn’t planned it was off the cuff.
“We were waiting with baited breath on Sunday night and then was like ‘oh my God.’
“Then we had to go on ITV Player and watch it about 20 times.”
Mrs Dillard had originally applied for her daughter, who loves the show, to be an extra as a surprise.
She hopes Achmed will also become a regular on the series.
