Joey Essex Meets Ed Miliband At Labour Supporters Event (PICTURES)

A minor British celebrity with strange teeth and a testy family relationship… met Joey Essex on Wednesday evening.

According to his Twitter feed, the star of The Only Way Is Essex and, more recently, I'm A Celebrity spent an enjoyable night advising on foreign policy hanging out with Ed Miliband at a Labour supporters event in central London.

A selfie posted by the TOWIE man also featured Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson, writer Kathy Lette and artist Grayson Perry.

Rumours that Essex and Miliband were later spotted at the Sugar Hut with Len McCluskey and Rylan Clark remain unconfirmed.
