TOWIE star Joey Essex hasn't ruled out the possibility of finding love in the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here jungle.

The 23-year-old reality star is one of ten celebrities who will enter the Australian jungle on Sunday night (17 November) when the new series begins on ITV.

Joey is newly-single after breaking up with on-again-off-again girlfriend Samantha Faiers on a recent episode of TOWIE and says he isn't against the idea of a jungle romance.

"I am single at the moment. If there was a nice girl in there and I got on really well with her, who knows what would happen?!" he says. "A bit of eye candy would be nice so hopefully there will be a beautiful girl."

What about model Amy Willerton? She won Katie Price's Signed By Katie talent show and is a beauty queen.

We all know the jungle can inspire romance. Just look at Katie Price and Peter Andre (before the divorce) and Cerys Matthews and Mark Bannerman (before the split).

Sam and Joey have now split.

Whether he finds love or not, Joey says he's hoping his time in the jungle will allow people to see the real him. "I want them to see who I really am," he says. "This is a chance for me to show everyone."

As for his hopes for the atmosphere, he says: "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."

I'm A Celebrity starts Sunday, 17 November at 9pm on ITV.
