Joey Essex Quits TOWIE?

Posted by: on May 23, 2013 | No Comments

The funniest, cutest and quite possibly stupidest star of ITV2’s The Only Way Is Essex has threatened to quit the show, according to reports.

The cheeky Essex chappy, Joey Essex (yes, that is his REAL surname) joined the show in its second series and has since become once of its biggest stars with all the best story lines. At the end of the last series, Joey took his girlfriend Sam Faiers to Dubai and proposed to her – jel!!

It is rumoured that upon returning to this series, Joey threatened to quit if the bosses didn’t give him a better deal. The show’s bosses felt that every cast member should be paid the same wage. It has been reported in the past that the cast receive just £50 each for a day’s work, which can mean working for up to 18 hours. Bosses argued this was fair because of the money they earn through deals, which they wouldn’t receive had they not taken part in the show.

Yesterday Joey was spotted in TOWIE holiday hotspot, Marbella (or Marbs if you’re from Chigwell). After talks with fiancee, Sam, it looks like he has decided to remain a part of the show after all!

The next series of TOWIE airs on June 2nd.
