TOWIE star Joey Essex will appear in a TV show hoping to teach him a few lessons in life.

The Brentwood native is starring in Educating Joey Essex which starts on ITV2 on Sunday March 16.

In the first episode the 24-year-old flies out to South Africa where he meets a township in Soweto and looks at wildlife at the Kruger National Park.

Fans of Joey's dim but comical views are set to be delighted with the former I'm A Celebrity contestant saying he thought Africa was a consonant and complains about being kept from sleeping in a tent by the sound of "cricketers".
