Speaking about his intense exercise regime, Joey told The Mirror: "I do 600 press-ups and 600 sit-ups every day and drink water."

Was Joey exaggerating ever so slightly? We can't seem to comprehend how it's possible to do 1200 of these combined every single day. 600 each is just insane!

But that's not all, Joey also told the newspaper that he eats "six to eight chicken breasts with three or four eggs" every day, although he stresses it's without "gravy or salt".

Fans of the reality star recently saw Joey on screen where he was grilling politicians ahead of the general election for his latest instalment of Educating Joey Essex.

While speaking to him about the show, Joey told Reveal what rules he would bring into the country if he were Prime Minister.

"I'd bring in speeding cameras for slow walkers if you walk too slow in shopping centres," he told us. "I'd get all supermarkets to deliver everything. Free haircuts if you get a Joey Essex haircut. Every time someone rings you up you'd have to say, 'What are you saying?', and you couldn't say 'hello'. Every year on 29 July, which is my birthday, we'd have a big party, it would be like Christmas but Joey Essex Day."

Sounds like it would be 'reem' year all round!
