Joey, who came fourth place in the jungle, was treated to a welcome home party by his family and close friends on Thursday night (12 December).
After attending the British Comedy Awards in London with fellow campmate Amy Willerton, the pair headed back to Essex to kickstart celebrations.
Before arriving, Joey, who wore a brown checked suit, tweeted: "Looking Hollywood tonight at my welcome back party with @amywillerton!!! Will look very smart but we had to! Will explain when we arrive!!"
Most pleased to see Joey was James 'Arg' Argent, who declared: "Best friends reunited...Myself and @joeyessex_ last night at his welcome home party! #GoodTimes x."
It was also the first time that Arg was introduced to Amy. While she was in the jungle, Arg admitted that he had taken quite a shine to the beauty queen.
"She's lovely," Arg told ITV's This Morning. "I am a bit jealous yeah. If it doesn't work out with them two hopefully he'll introduce me to her after. She's naturally pretty, she's well spoken, a bright girl."
Also in attendance at Joey's party was TOWIE stars Tom Pearce, James 'Diags' Bennewith, Jasmin Walia, Mario Falcone, Joey's sister Frankie Essex and their cousins Charlie and Chloe Sims.
Posting a group photo to Twitter, Tom said: "Good to see my boy back home!" Meanwhile, Jasmin said: "Out for @JoeyEssex_ welcome back party!! #welldone!"
Chloe's daughter, Madison, also grabbed a photo with Joey during the party. Captioning the snap, Chloe said: "Joey's welcome home party. Lovely night xxx."
Despite Joey recently playing down rumours that he was dating Amy, the pair barely left each other's side as they posed for photos.
Later, Amy posted a cute snap to her Instagram account of the pair snuggling up to each other while holding a cup of tea.
Captioning the photo, she said: "Crazy days since we got home!! #chillax joeyessex90 #onsies #tea #biscuits."
