Joey Essex Getting African Education In New Reality Show

Former Towie star's new vehicle is a pun on hit reality show Educating Essex...

Everybody's favourite dippy Essex boy will be returning to the small screen in a new series called - drum roll - Educating Joey Essex.

It has been announced that the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! contestant's cleverly titled new show will see him travel to Africa to learn about its culture, geography and wildlife.

And the bouffant-haired 23-year-old star of the show has posted a picture of himself with TV presenter Phillip Schofield - who will be narrating the ITV2 show.

No transmission date has yet been announced for the former The Only Way Is Essex cast member's new vehicle, but it is expected to be screened in the Spring.

We told you last month how Joey was rushed to hospital after being bitten by a monkey during filming of the show.
