A DAY of celebrity drama was on the cards when cast members from a real life TV soap dropped into a spiritual centre for a psychic reading.

Amy Childs and Sam Faiers, stars of The Only Way is Essex, visited the Angel Healing and Spiritual Centre, in Sun Street, Waltham Abbey, to have their fortunes told by resident medium Pat Pryde.

Owner Terry Higgs had an idea the filming might take place- he was told about it a week before by one of his psychic staff members.

He said: “They phoned us to say they wanted to use one of our mediums. They interviewed six of them and Pat was the one they liked so she got the job.

“The reading was about their love life things like that. She read the cards and it went very well. They were good readings and the girls were really impressed at what was said.”

The Only Way is Essex has been a surprise hit for ITV2 with its stories of the lives and romances of Essex boys and girls.

Terry said: “If I'm honest I hadn't seen it before they called, but I watched an episode the other night. It's different, that's all I can say. I think I'm too old for it but it looks very good.”

Since it was set up in June this year, the Angel Centre has grown and it now offers tarot readings, psychic readings, and its own Reiki master Chris, as well as spiritual lessons.

Terry said: “We were over the moon when they came to the centre. We're growing but we're hoping we'll get even bigger in the future. We all need a bit of help.”

Appointments at the centre can be made by calling 01992 651045.

Amy and Sam's appearance at the centre will be shown this Wednesday, November 3, at 10pm on ITV2.
