- What's Been The Strangest Pop-Political Pairing?
- BLOG: Joey Essex and the Culture of Political Snobbery
In the run-up to this General Election thing everyone keeps banging on about, the former ‘TOWIE’ cast member is making a special version of his reality show ‘Educating Joey Essex’ entitled ‘General Election, What Are You Saying?!’.
However, it seems the Prime Minister has things on his agenda that he deems more important than chatting to the man who literally thought Nick Clegg was the leader of a party called the ‘Liberal Demo-cats’, and won’t be joining Joey for an interview.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live: "It's a shame really - I don't know if anyone knows but I'm not meeting David Cameron. I've met everyone else out of the MPs. I've only just found out today.
"I really did want to meet him but it's not happening. I'm a bit gutted but he's a busy man, just like every other MP. It would have been just nice because I've met everyone else."
He also had a chat with Nick Clegg, who he stopped to pose for a selfie with at a press conference.
When asked about what he would like to see in the future of British politics, Joey said he wanted MPs to be more “normal”, adding they should “wear onesies and that”.
