Charlie decided to leave Essex behind for a bit of sun, sea and fun by joining Joey, TOWIE star Dan Edgar and Jasmin Walia's brother Danny in the popular holiday hotspot.
Charlie phoned Joey beforehand to let him know that he was coming to visit, and The Jump winner Joey was rather excited. He tweeted over the weekend: "My little cousin @charlessims_ has just told me he's coming to visit me whilst I'm here in DUBAI... Wow... I can't wait for this..."
Joey, Dan and Danny landed last week, and with Charlie now in the mix, the boys didn't waste time partying last night (19 April).
Heading out for some food first, the group hit Japanese restaurant OKKU, where they posed for a picture as they sat round the table.
Joey said: "Dinner time. So glad @charlessims_ has come and see me! Dubai... #Okku."
And in another photo where the boys pose with a mystery blonde girl, Joey added: "I love my [cousin]. Had a lovely meal tonight. And a chilled one, chilled out night with the girls."
Charlie quit TOWIE during the recent 14th series, with show bosses later confirming he didn't feel "comfortable sharing his real life on camera".
He also split with his girlfriend Ferne McCann, but despite it coming as a shock at the time, Ferne recently said their split was "amicable" and insisted they are still "good friends".
