TOWIE Star Joey Essex Wanted For 'I'm A Celebrity' - Would He Fit In Down Under In The Jungle?

Joey Essex is reportedly being lined-up to appear in the next series of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'

The TOWIE star has been offered the chance to swap Essex for the Australian jungle, according to The Mirror.

A source told the paper: “Joey plans to do one more series of TOWIE, which starts at the end of September, then leave the show.

“ITV bosses want to make him a huge star and he knows now is the right time to go and do something different.

“He’s in talks with I’m A Celeb, but also has some exciting solo projects in the pipeline too.”

If he takes up the offer he would follow in the footsteps of former TOWIE star Mark Wright, who is similarly appearance-orientated and comes across as a little bit dim but has gone on to land a series of his own shows.

Joey recently split from his fiancée Sam Faiers but not before starring in a cheesy Hawaiian-themed photoshoot with her.

Joey looked like a real-life Ken doll as he posed next to his bikini-clad girlfriend, just weeks before their breakup.

Do you think he could really cut it Down Under?
