Joey Essex is envious of Mark Wright's jungle adventure

Joey Essex is missing TOWIE co-star Mark Wright.

I’m so sad Mark‘s left the show,’ Joey, 21, tells us. ‘I even cried when we filmed his last scenes.

‘I’m not being funny but I think I’d do OK in I’m A Celeb as most people think I’m nice.

‘It’ll be harder for Mark because not everyone likes him as much, but I reckon he can win it.

‘I hope he does.

‘I’d be up for everything if I did it, even eating the bugs – although they’d have to give me a Nando‘s afterwards!’
