TOWIE star Joey Essex has given fans a treat by promising he'll be shirtless throughout his I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here stint.

The cheeky Essex star will enter the Australian jungle on Sunday night (17 November) alongside nine other stars all competing to be named King or Queen of the Jungle 2013.

Joey said: "I will have my shirt off all the time. I will show people how to do some modelling in the jungle. That is for definite."

The reality favourite is going into the jungle a single man following his split from on-again-off-again girlfriend and TOWIE co-star Samantha Faiers but said he isn't ruling out the possibility of finding love while in Australia.

Girls aside, however, there's only person that Joey really wants to meet in the camp this year: Justin Bieber! "Can you imagine chatting to him?" he said. "That would be so cool!"

Unfortunately for Joey (and viewers), we're pretty sure that won't happen…

Joey arrived in Australia earlier this week.

Talking about what he'll bring to the show, he said: "I want people to have fun and have a laugh. I am an active person and I can never sit still. I am always on the go and so I will be like 'come on let's go and play hide and seek'. I would like to think that I would be the joker of the camp… In the jungle, I can be myself. I am not an argumentative person. I like to have friends."

"I want [the viewers] to see who I really am," added the 23-year-old. "This is a chance for me to show everyone."

We can't wait!

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here starts Sunday, 17 November at 9pm on ITV.
