The reality star is also wearing headphones in the snap, which he posted on Twitter, although he has obscured his face.

Alongside the snap, Joey commented: "In the studio. Nothing long..." Hmmm. Radio, voiceover or rap recording?

Last week, Joey announced that he is releasing his own album of Essex tunes called Joey Essex presents Essex Anthems.

The former I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! contestant's record is full of compliations, not his own music, but apparently he wants to do a follow-up.

Speaking to The Sun, Joey said: "I might be doing a deal." Demonstrating his rapping skills, he added: "Yo, yo, you, yeah, my name is Joe, don't live in Hackney, don't live in Bow."
