I'm A Celebrity 2013 contestants: Joey Essex
Who has left luxury behind to face the bushtucker trials down-under?
Joey Essex, 23, reality TV star
Who? Joey Essex is a key character in one of the UK’s most popular reality TV shows, The Only Way Is Essex. Sadly, he’ll be missing the Christmas special this year.
Why take part?: Joey is unashamedly hoping that a beautiful single female contestant shall be joining him on the show. “I will have my shirt off all the time.”
What he says: “Even if I touch a dog or a cat, I wash my hands. My reactions are going to be heightened in the jungle for sure!”
Most likely to humilate himself: Pestering his campmates to play hide and seek with him and competing with Steve for “joker of the camp”.
Phobias: Any creepy crawlies and general dirty things.
Ideal campsite comrade: “A bit of eye candy would be nice...please!”
Looking forward to: I'm not sure I can bring myself to write 'a beautiful girl' again.
Odds of a jungle romance?: As if the message has somehow failed to get across...“I’m single at the moment. If there was a nice girl in there and I got on really well with her, who knows what would happen?!”
