Ex-TOWIE star Joey Essex was all smiles as he stepped out in London, after discussing politics on ITV's This Morning...

Yes, really!

The reality star is turning his attentions to parliament ahead of this year's general election and he certainly looked like he meant business heading out of the ITV Studios in London earlier today.

Strutting his stuff in a star logo polo top, trainers and shades, Joey looked like a total VIP as he chatted on the phone. We wonder who was on the other end? One of his new pals, perhaps? Nigel Farage? David Cameron?

For his latest Educating Joey Essex special, Joey has been trying to get his head around the UK's government, paying a visit to Downing Street and meeting the country's leading politicians.

With no background knowledge on the politicians and what they do, Joey's trip was to help him understand the hottest topics in politics, as well as why he should vote and who he should vote for.

Speaking on This Morning, Joey spoke about his time filming Educating Joey Essex: The General Election What Are You Saying?, admitting: "I called Nick Clegg, Nick Leg, by accident!"

Despite sitting down with each party leader, Joey revealed he still doesn't know who he will be supporting just yet, but he has learnt a lot from meeting them.

"I didn't really know anything about politics," he said. "But I know the ins and outs and the basics now. I know all I need to know to vote.

While he still isn't sure of who's manifesto he'll be voting for, Joey is sure of the polices he'd put in place if he was in charge.

First the 29 July (his birthday) would be a bank holiday and officially titled 'Joey Essex Day', free haircuts for all and shopping lanes. One for all the window shoppers, one for the fast wakers and one for those who take their time when it comes to retail therapy.

Hmm... we think he may be onto something with that one!
