Former TOWIE star Joey Essex is most certainly looking forward to Christmas this year.

Essex favourite Joey will be spending the festive season with his family, but instead of having a turkey, it turns out Joey wouldn't mind having fish on Christmas Day!

"I'm spending Christmas with my family," Joey tells Reveal. "My uncle's opening a new fish restaurant in Essex, so we're all going there on Christmas Day.

"I don't know if we'll be eating fish. I think all fish restaurants around Essex serve up Christmas dinner, but I like fish though, I mean, I wouldn't mind having a bit of fish on Christmas Day!"

We then asked Joey if he would therefore be willing to change the tradition this year: "I'm all about fish, ain't I?! I used to work in a fishmongers mate! I love fish," he replied. Err, ok!

Fans of the reality star recently watched Joey on the latest instalment of Educating Joey Essex, which saw him adapt to the freezing cold temperatures in Patagonia.

And luckily for them, Joey is expected to be back on our screens early next year. "I've already filmed another show for the new year," Joey tells us. "I can't say much but it's a fashion one."

Joey will also be competing against other celebrities for the second series of Channel 4 winter sports show, The Jump.
