Was this really only coined 25 years ago?

As far as I'm aware the Phrase "Essex Girls" started in the early 1980's

As wiki puts it

" The stereotypical image formed as a variation of the dumb blonde/bimbo persona, with references to the Estuary English accent, white stiletto heels, silicone-augmented breasts, peroxide blonde hair, over-indulgent use of fake tan (lending an orange appearance), promiscuity, loud verbal vulgarity and socialising at downmarket nightclubs."
