Joey Essex is "freaked out" by the new instalment of his reality show 'Educating Joey Essex' which will see him hunt for aliens
Joey Essex's hunt for aliens has left him "freaked out".
The 23-year-old star has been whisked off to the infamous Area 51 in Nevada to spot UFOs for the next episode of his ITV2 show 'Educating Joey Essex', but it seems Joey may have bitten off more than he can chew by signing up for the extraterrestrial encounter.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Joey is jumpy enough around wild animals, let alone searching for aliens in the dark. He's really freaked out by the idea, but he wants his show to be a success, so he's up for giving it a go. Execs think it will be TV gold."
Joey's alien adventure follows his trip to Brazil to learn about the art of football ahead of the World Cup last month and a trip to Africa earlier in the year.
Viewers can expect even more hilarious antics from the reality star, who reportedly had a meltdown in Rio de Janeiro because he couldn't get internet access or electricity to blow-dry his famous coiffed hair.
Unlucky Joey was also bitten by a monkey during a trip to South Africa for the first episode of 'Educating Joey Essex' and feared he'd caught rabies.
