Joey Essex has vowed to start learning Spanish in preparation for his holiday to Marbella, in southern Spain, with his friends

Joey Essex wants to learn to speak Spanish.

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has confessed he plans to brush up on his language skills in 2015 in preparation for his upcoming visit to Marbella with his pals.

The reality TV star - who also has his own documentary series 'Educating Joey Essex', which follows his pursuit of knowledge across the globe - said: "I did loads of travelling last year. If I learnt Spanish then maybe it would be easier to chat to people. Especially when I go to Marbs in the summer with the boys."

The 24-year-old hunk also revealed he is a budding musician and thinks it would be "cool" to learn the guitar so he can start writing his own songs.

He explained: "I want to learn the guitar so I can write my own stuff. I'm always making up songs so I think it would be cool to play and sing or rap at the same time."

Meanwhile, Joey has kicked off the New Year with a makeover from Foxy Bingo in celebration of the UK website's new look.

The star tried out three northern-inspired looks in a nod to Foxy's roots - donning a kilt from Scotland, a moth eaten vest, scruffy jeans and a grubby beanie hat in tribute to the character Compo from the Yorkshire-based TV show 'Last of the Summer Wine' and finally, a get-up inspired by former Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher, who comes from Manchester.

Joey said of his new looks: "I like to keep myself looking reem, but I look a right doughnut dressed like this. I don't know if people 'oop north' pull in this clobber, but I'd have no chance down Sugar Hut dressed in this gear."

Foxy's new look will be revealed for the first time tonight [Monday, 5th January] during the 8.15pm ad break on Coronation Street - or go online at
