TOWIE stars are gearing up to work a shift at a fast food chicken restaurant.

Mario Falcone and Bobby Norris will be among the famous faces serving food and waiting tables at Nando’s, on Basildon’s Festival Leisure Park.

James Lock is the latest Towie name to sign up to the charity event, which may also feature Chris Drake, Ricky Rayment, Harry Derbidge and Charlie King.

Staff have organised the starstudded fundraising event to mark the 20th birthday of SNAP, an Essex-based charity supporting children and families with special needs.

Customers will also be entertained by X Factor star Lydia Lucy, who made it to the judges’ houses stage in last year’s show.

Tables cannot be booked in advance, so fans will have to arrive early.

Hilary Needham, manager of SNAP, said: “We are so grateful that Nando’s and Festival Leisure Park are supporting SNAP’s anniversary.

“The money raised at this fantastic event will make such a difference to the services we provide to families across Essex with children and young people who have special needs and disabilities.

“A huge thank you to everyone involved.’’ The fun-filled event takes place between 1pm and 5pm on Sunday.
