The Only Way Is Essex sisters Sam and Billie Faiers were at the Old Bailey today to see their step-father sentenced for a daring £1 million bullion heist.
Sam's boyfriend Joey Essex, who is also a star of the television show Towie, held her hand in the public gallery.
The court was packed with family and friends of David Chatwood and five other men who all face jail for the plot.
Chatwood, 58, is behind bars already because he was recalled from licence having been given a 12-year sentence in 2001 for drug supply and firearms offences.
The six defendants, mainly middle-aged men from Essex, were being sentenced for conspiracy to steal after a British lorry carrying gold and silver bullion was robbed in a fake hold-up in Belgium in October, last year.
