Joey Essex is wanted for 'I'm A Celebrity Get... Me Out of Here'.
'The Only Way is Essex' star has been offered a chance to appear on the creepy crawly television game show - hosted by Ant and Dec - but is still deliberating over the proposal after his ITV reality show contract states he'll have to give 15% of his appearance fee to the 'TOWIE' production company.
An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Joey plans to do one more series of 'TOWIE', which starts at the end of September, then leave the show.
"ITV bosses want to make him a huge star and he knows now is the right time to go and do something different.
"He's in talks with 'I'm A Celeb', but also has some exciting solo projects in the pipeline too."
Joey - who recently split from his co-star and former fiancée Sam Faiers - is eager to leave the show after series ten airs later in the year because he's struggling to film scenes with his ex-lover.
The source added: "Joey still loves Sam and finds it hard having to film scenes with her.
"He knows that they'll both find it easier to get on with their lives if they don't have to work together anymore."
