Joey Essex plans streak on TOWIE live episode
Joey Essex is planning to streak during James Argent's tap-dancing routine on tonight's (03.12.12) live episode of 'The Only Way Is Essex'
Joey Essex plans to streak on 'The Only Way Is Essex' live episode tonight (03.12.12).
The 21-year-old star has warned he is planning to disrupt his friend and fellow castmember James 'Arg' Argent's tap-dancing routing at a charity talent contest by running naked across the stage.
He told The Sun newspaper: "Imagine if there was a streaker. When Arg is on stage I could do it in the middle of his routine. He'd cry."
But James is fully expecting some kind of "sabotage" while he is performing, and insists someone will have to kill him to get him off the stage.
He said: "Someone may choose to sabotage my time in the limelight. But they will have to kill me if they want me off stage."
Former 'X Factor' contestant Rylan Clark was also supposed to join in the fun for the live episode but has dropped out after Mario Falcone threatened to quit the ITV2 show if the 23-year-old wannabe starts appearing in the programme on a full-time basis.
Mario blasted: "Rylan may be all right for the live episode, but if he comes on the main show with us, we've all said we'll leave ... me, Joey Essex and Kirk Norcross.
"We've distanced ourselves from his interpretation of Essex - it makes us look like none of us have got intellect when we have. He's a douche bag."
But Rylan hit back at the 24-year-old hunk, describing his comments as "very unprofessional", and admitted he wouldn't take advice from the Italian tailor because he has previously "cheated" on his girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh.
He explained: "I can't believe these comments are coming from a man who cheated on his girlfriend.
"I've never met Mario in my life, so I find it very unprofessional for him to go about talking about people he hasn't even met.
"Anyone who cheats on his girlfriend that much isn't worth my time."
'Live: The Only Way Is Essex' airs tonight at 10pm on ITV2.
