Fan frenzy: The Only Way Is Essex fans and potential shoppers gathered outside Minnie's Boutique in Brentwood
If Sam and Billie Faiers were ever in any doubt about how successful their boutique would be, they needn’t have worried.
Because Minnie’s was overrun with The Only Way Is Essex fans today, as the store opened to the public.
Scores of young girls, their mothers and even a few men queued outside the boutique in Brentwood, Essex.
Sam, 20, and her sister Billie, 21, will undoubtedly have their till bursting with cash by the end of the Easter weekend if business continues to be this good.
But it is unknown whether all of the camera-happy fans were at Minnie’s to shop or to just get a glimpse of the reality TV stars.
Despite their intentions, the sisters looked happy to welcome their potential customers and Sam looked stunning in a strapless floral dress and nude heels.
While Billie opted for a navy blue silk knee-length dress during their store’s first day of business.

Sam posted on her Twitter page last night that she had an early night so she’d be refreshed for her busy day at work.
She tweeted: ‘In bed watching a film, as for @JoeyEssex_ it’s his 3rd night out in a row!! Night everyone x’
And updated her Twitter again today, posting: ‘Minnies opening!! Having an amazing day xx’

The sisters also named Gossip Girl Blake Liveley and fellow reality stars the Kardashian sisters as their ideal celebrity clients.
But their dream A-lister is Kate, and said: ‘She always looks lovely, but she’s always very smartly dressed. We’d love to see her in one of our dresses.’
