Former TOWIE star Joey headed to London's O2 Arena on Sunday (12 October) to watch the British singing sensation belt out his much-loved hits.

Joey had earlier tweeted: "Good luck mate @edsheeran! See you soon."

Sharing a picture with fans last night (13 October), Joey sent another good luck message to Ed, who has four concert dates in London.

Joey seems to have struck up quite a friendship with Ed and there's no denying that they look rather pally in this new pic!

Earlier this year, 'Give Me Love' singer Ed declared himself a massive TOWIE fan, saying he was "hooked" on the show. He admitted: "I bought it on iTunes - that's how deep it's got!"

Ed also referred to the time Joey called co-star Mario Falcone a "Capri Sun", declaring it as the show's "best insult"!
