The ‘Passengers’ actor and ‘House Bunny’ actress – who wed in 2009 – will be given VIP access behind the scenes on the series after Chris consulted the production team on his forthcoming film ‘Jurassic World’ and asked them to sort them out with a visit to Brentwood, Essex, where TOWIE is filmed.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Chris and Anna have got even more ‘Towie’ obsessed after watching the recent series. They never miss an episode.

“They’ve asked a production member of his movie, who knows Essex, to give them a VIP tour of where all the filming takes place.

“The show is a huge guilty pleasure for them both.”

Chris previously revealed watching ‘TOWIE’ with his wife meant he was able to perfect his Essex accent.

In 2015, he said: “When I was filming ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ in the UK we watched a lot of garbage TV and my wife [Anna Faris] went crazy for TOWIE.”

“She fell in love with the show and I started picking up the accent so now the only British one I can do is an Essex one.”
