Phillip Schofield has claimed Joey Essex was "brilliant" when he appeared on ITV game show 'The Cube'

Joey Essex was "brilliant" on 'The Cube', according to Phillip Schofield.

The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star was eager to take on the challenges on the ITV game show and lobbied its presenter to become a contestant.

Phillip admits he was surprised by how well Joey, 23, did on the show after struggling to tell the time during his stint on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' last year.

He said: "Joey said to me, 'Please get me on The Cube', so I told the production guys and they snapped up the chance. He was better than I thought he'd be. Sometimes the games did take a bit of explaining! He was a brilliant guest."

As for his own career, the 'This Morning' presenter admits he doesn't have any unfulfilled ambitions and is happy hosting a slew of shows such as 'Dancing on Ice', 'The Cube' and 'All Star Mr. and Mrs.'

He added: "I don't have any midlife crisis ambitions. I watched Davina McCall do her Sport Relief challenge and she had incredible guts. There's nothing I feel like I still need to do. I'm really happy."
