I’m A Celebrity day 18: The one where Joey Essex got away

Last night's jungle eviction was anything but reem

In last night’s third shock double eviction TOWIE’s Joey Essex was voted out along with model Amy Willerton.


I confess to having been pretty certain there’d have been a final showdown between Kian Egan and Joey Essex, easily my two favourites of this year’s show. But what do I know? Kian will probably get voted out next and i’ll just have to throw the towel in.

I have a soft spot for fashion designer David Emanuel, but for him or Emmerdale’s Lucy Pargeter to win over Joey or Kian seems bonkers.

Joey did most of the trials, ate every weird meal sent into camp with the biggest grin on his face, he invented words… jungle life was better with a splash of Joey Essex. It won’t be reem without him I should say.

Although Joey did seem to have some ideas of what he could do upon leaving the jungle – a cookbook. After all, he revealed he’s learned to cook without all the usual kitchen equipment. A microwave, a tin of beans… yes Joey really did venture far from his culinary comfort zone.

I’d personally rather a book of Joey-isms. I for one certainly think confrontate is starting to make perfect sense…
