Coming to a book store near you... Joey Essex

The former ‘TOWIE’ star’s life story ‘Being Reem’ will be released later this year.

The book will chart his rise to fame as a cast member on ‘The Only Way Is Essex’, as well as his time in the ‘I’m a Celeb’ jungle.

It will also deal with more serious themes such as the loss of his mother at a young age, as well as the breakdown of his engagement to ‘TOWIE’ co-star Sam Faiers.

Joey said: “I’ve done some pretty wicked things in the last few years but getting to bring out a book is really cool. I’m looking forward to my fans reading all about my life so far and meeting them when the book comes out.”

It has been reported that Joey and Sam may have rekindled their romance, after she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease following a bout of illness in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house.

A source told The Sun: “The situation has thrown them back together and they are now closer than ever.”

‘Being Reem’ will be published by Hodder & Stoughton on 22 May 2014.
