Ex-TOWIE star Joey Essex is swapping Sugar Hut for the Houses of Parliament in all new Educating Joey Essex.

Last month, Joey was spotted standing on the Prime Minister's Downing Street doorstep, and while we were all slightly confused as to why the 24-year-old was dressed to the nines and taking selfies at number 10, it soon became clear Joey has his sights set on our party leaders for the next episode of his ITV2 show.

He's been to Africa, followed the World Cup to Brazil and even tried to get his head round if alien's are real, but now Joey is taking on the general election. What are you saying?!

For Educating Joey Essex: General Election, What Are You Saying?, Joey will rub shoulders with parliament's finest as he tries to extend his political knowledge.

And judging by what he showcased on TOWIE previously (remember that time Lucy Meck asked him who the Prime Minister was and he replied: "Who of Essex?), he has quite a lot to learn!

In a new trailer released by ITV2, Joey can be seen telling Labour leader Ed Miliband he loves his banter, cosying up to UKIP's Nigel Farage for a selfie and struggling to get his tongue around saying the word 'Conservative'.

But will his one-to-one's with this year's election runners help Joey to understand what it is politicians actually do?

We guess we'll have to wait see!

In the episode, cameras will follow Joey's every move as he tours the Houses of Parliament and tries to understand the hottest topics in politics. After sitting down with each party leader, Joey will ultimately decided whether or not he should vote, and if so who it is he should vote for.

Ahead of his time in Westminister, he said: "I'm really excited about getting to meet some of the most important people in the country to help me make my decision... I reckon I'll take some pretty reem selfies too!"

We don't doubt that he did!

Educating Joey Essex: General Election, What Are You Saying? airs Tuesday 5 May at 9pm on ITV2.
