Joey Essex is set to add modelling to his list of achievements after being signed to Select Model Management
Joey Essex has been signed to a modelling agency.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star - who has his own clothing boutique Fusey - has decided to embark on a career in modelling after joining Select Model Management.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Joey loves his fashion so he's overjoyed about signing to Select. They believe he could become one of their biggest clients."
Joey quit 'TOWIE' last year and went on to appear on the celebrity diving show 'Splash!', before taking part in the thirteenth series of 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!'
After the 23-year-old hunk proved to be a big hit with the viewers, he then went on to land his one-off documentary last month 'Educating Joey Essex', which saw him travel to South Africa to learn about different cultures.
Joey is also being lined up to appear in a programme which will send him around the world, similar to Karl Pilkington's adventures in the hit Sky 1 show 'An Idiot Abroad'.
A source said previously: "It's early stages but it rapidly became clear while filming 'Educating Joey Essex' that it was going to be TV gold and ITV2 is absolutely desperate to get him signed up for more.
"The show is going to be like 'An Idiot Abroad'. Think Joey being dumped in the middle of a remote part of Australia or in the centre of buzzing Tokyo - it would completely blow his mind."
Joey - who has just rekindled his romance with ex-fiancee Sam Faiers - has also released his 'Essex Anthems' compilation CD, which is set for chart success, and his autobiography will be released in May.
