Joey Essex is the latest star to join Select Model Management

Joey Essex has ditched his bouffant hair and orange tan for a more subdued style.

The TOWIE star has been signed by Select Model Management, an agency who represents David Gandy, 50 Shades Of Grey star Jamie Dornan and Pixie Lott‘s boyfriend Oliver Cheshire.

‘We are really happy about having Joey Essex on board,’ a spokesperson for the company told MailOnline.

‘We are a tough agency and are renowned for creating stars.

‘As an agency, our reputation for booking fragrances/campaigns and film has created the biggest names in the industry.

‘We saw Joey‘s potential for world domination with his huge UK following. Select Men will take him to the next level and make him a global star.’

The announcement comes weeks after Joey‘s girlfriend Sam Faiers bagged a partnership with Elite Models.
