Former TOWIE star Joey Essex endured another life changing trip in July as he learned how to be an astronaut.

Joey made the secret mission as part of a new episode of his popular Educating Joey Essex reality show, which is set to return next week.

Joey Essex speaks about 'Educating Joey Essex - Space Cadet' on This Morning (28 August).


Next Tuesday, (2 September), fans will be able to watch Joey in search of all things supernatural in Educating Joey Essex: Space Cadet.

Joey takes up a space camp course in Alabama and also spends a night near Area 51 in Nevada.

Speaking on ITV1's This Morning, Joey said: "I land in Vegas and travel to Nevada in the desert where you have no phone signal. There's nothing to do, you're surrounded by sand and rattlesnakes, and if you do get bitten, you're probably going to die.

"That's what they say because there's no help out there," he continued. "There's no one there at all. You're oblivious to anything that's happening."

In the episode, viewers will see Joey desperate to pass his space camp course with flying colours but, his induction into the extra-terrestrial continues when he meets a woman, Tina Marie, who claims she was abducted by aliens.

Joey says his worst nightmare would be getting abducted by aliens, so just how did he fare spending a night in the infamous Area 51 (the US airbase in Nevada, which is rumoured to house UFOs)?

We'll have to tune in to find out!

When This Morning's Ruth Langsford asked Joey if he saw any extra-terrestrial activity, the reality star said: "I don't know... I think I met one alien. Aliens just look like us, like humans, except they're an alien!"

The first Educating Joey Essex show aired in March, where viewers saw Joey in search of his childhood love - monkeys. In June, Joey jetted off to Brazil to film a second episode ahead of the 2014 World Cup tournament.

"You keep learning forever," Joey continued to tell Ruth. "I've learnt about nature, football, aliens... I've filmed six altogether now and this is the third one coming out."

So we've got lots more Educating Joey Essex episodes to come! Who's excited?!

Educating Joey Essex: Space Cadet airs Tuesday 2 September at 9pm on ITV2.
