Joey Essex set for TV education
12:00pm Wednesday 12th March 2014 in Local news
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".
