The Only Way is Essex shocked many in April when it took home the 'YouTube Audience Award' at this year's BAFTAs. However, Little said that he always knew viewers would take to the show.
"I was surprised by the snobbery surrounding the triumph of The Only Way is Essex," he wrote in his column for the Radio Times.
"I was asked if I felt it deserved its BAFTA in the viewers' choice category. I suppose the answer is in the question: it won, didn't it?
"If fans want to show their appreciation by voting for it, what's the problem?"
Little worked as head story writer for the first series of the ITV show, before being tasked to create a similar series called Made in Chelsea for E4.
He explained that his role is not to fabricate stories, but to pick up on the interesting parts of the cast's lives and present them in the right way.
"The cast told me what was going on in their lives and I looked for ways to bring out the drama and the comedy," he said.
Made in Chelsea currently airs Mondays on E4.
