Splash! star Joey's not keen on creepy crawlies

The Only Way Is Essex star Joey Essex is up for going on I’m A Celebrity like former TOWIE star Mark Wright – so long as he doesn’t have to touch anything nasty.

The Essex boy is keen to do more reality TV after doing well on diving contest Splash! but he doesn’t want to get his hands dirty.

I’d do I’m A Celebrity but I would be really scared,’ says Joey, 22.

‘I could eat those horrible things, but I couldn’t touch them. I’d scream. And I don’t like getting my hands dirty!

But I do like a good adventure.’

Joey has just proposed to girlfriend Sam Faiers, 21, during a romantic break to Dubai and is thinking about his television career after TOWIE.

If Sam left then I’d leave too,’ he reveals.

I would like to do a spin-off show with Sam. Never say never! We’ve had offers but we’re still looking around.

Reality TV is my thing, I think – I don’t want to be big-headed, but people like me because they don’t think I could really be that thick!’
