Joey Essex on that kiss with Jess Wright and Mark Wright's jungle adventure

Joey Essex reckons Joey Barton slagged off the cast The Only Way Is Essex on Twitter because he’s envious of their closeness.

The QPR midfielder made his nasty comments after bumping into them at the Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launch party.

‘I actually despise the whole of that firm, mentally deficient, turn up
at the opening of an envelope, fame hungry, prized ball bags. #TOWIE,’
Tweeted Joey B, 29.

The TOWIE cast retaliated and later posted a photo of them all mocking him.

‘That footballer Joey Barton had the cheek to be rude about all of us on Twitter, calling us freaks,’ says Joey E, 21.

‘He’s just jel of the fact we all stick together.

‘We may fall out from time to time, but when someone picks on Nanny Pat saying she’s got teeth like a horse, we’re not gonna have any of it!
