Joey Essex hopes exam board cheats and gives him an A* as he re-sits GCSE exam

Re-Educating Joey Essex: GCSE Special sees him have another bash at a General Studies exam, but Mr Essex is actually hoping for a helping hand given it's for a TV show...


Joey Essex has gone back to school for ITV2’s Re-Educating Joey Essex: GCSE Special, and while he’s put the hours in – going back to school, revising on the way to the test – he’s actually hoping the exam board will just give him an A* because it’s for a TV show.


“I hope they just go, ‘Do you know what? I think this is Joey Essex’s exam paper and he’s filming a TV show, let’s give him an A*.’ I’m hoping they cheat for me…” he laughs.


As well as dishing on what he really thought General Studies would be about (including how many legs a dinosaur has) the former TOWIE star also reveals how much he hates interviewing politicians – despite having another show coming up doing just that – and tries his hand at the puzzles in the back of the latest Radio Times magazine.

See how he got on below…
