TOWIE's Joey Essex Slams The Wanted
Scripted reality show star brands boy band 'annoying' in interview...
The reality TV personality was asked whether he'd rather be in that group or One Direction - and branded The Wanted "annoying".
He answered We Love Pop: "Definitely One Direction. Swerve The Wanted. They're just annoying, man.
"Years ago when I used to go out with Pixie Lott around Essex, one of her friends used to go out with one of The Wanted and we didn't really see eye-to-eye. That's all I'm saying..."
But Joey was more forthcoming when quizzed on his own personal style.
"I used to say my style is based on Zac Efron, Justin Bieber and Danny Zuko from Grease.
"Because Danny's got the leather jacket, Justin's got the swag and Zac Efron's got the cool hair.
"But now I think I've got my own style. In a few years time you'll be asking people who their style icon is and they'll be saying: 'Joey Essex'."
Joey is making a habit of picking rows with other celebs in the media - as Rylan Clark found out recently.
