Joey Essex jetted back out to Ibiza this weekend to celebrate his 23rd birthday in true fashion by partying in the sunshine with his pals.

Joined by his TOWIE co-stars Tom Pearce and James 'Diags' Bennewith, Joey boarded a plane on Sunday (28 July) and clearly couldn't wait to begin his birthday antics on the clubbing island, despite having just returned from a whirlwind trip there last week.

Reality TV star Joey was caught kissing a mystery girl out in Ibiza last Tuesday (23 July), but swiftly flew back to the UK to reunite with his boys, before they all hopped back on a plane yesterday to continue the holiday together.

Joey kept his fans up to date throughout his journey with various excited tweets and even uploaded a picture of himself, Diags, Tom and three other mates ready to board their flight.

In the snap, Joey can be seen standing in the centre of the group while wearing a pair of trainers that appear to be glowing! He captioned the photo: "Yoooo... Getting on the plane now!!! #seeyasoon"

Tom also posted a fun photo of the boys sat in their seats.

Once they all arrived in Ibiza, the excitement was turned up a notch, as Joey began to countdown to his birthday.

He tweeted: "Having best time!!! My birthday in 20mins!!!" Once it had turned midnight, he added: "Ohhhhh emmmmmm GEEEE... It's my birthday!!! Today!!!"

However, it seems like he may have got a little carried away and out-partied everyone else, as he then wrote: "It's my birthday... And I've rung my whole phone book all my friends are asleep! .. I'm up and I'm soooo bored mannnnnnn..."

But he still seemed to have had a great time regardless and posted of picture of himself in the club earlier that night.

After going to bed, Joey woke up and tweeted that he was ready for round two: "Hahahahaaaaaaa best time yesterday!!! It's my birthday today so it's going to get better!! Look at this view!"

The Fusey boutique owner has also been joined in Ibiza by his cousin Charlie Sims and co-star Mario Falcone, who sounded just as eager to meet up with ex TOWIE cast member Tom Kilbey for a spot of partying.

It's like one big Essex reunion out there!

Joey's ex-fiancée Sam Faiers has also been relaxing on the same island with the TOWIE girls, including Ferne McCann, Jess Wright and Lauren Pope.

However, Sam has returned to the UK today - just in time to avoid any awkward encounters with her former flame!

She tweeted: "Had the best weekend away with the girls.. non stop laughing and partying #holiday .. Home time for me xx"
