The 25-year-old was spotted entering the Brentwood nightclub made famous by the show and the only place worthy of a classic TOWIE bash - Sugar Hut of course.
Joey made his unexpected arrival at the venue shortly after TOWIE castmember Jessica Wright, who was there to film scenes for the new series. Ooh, what could it all mean?
The 'Joey sighting' teamed with the fact filming was taking place sparked rumours that The Jump champ could be making a return to the show after a two year hiatus.
TOWIE star Danielle Armstrong has already confirmed to Reveal that the 17th series will see a few new characters arriving. Could this include the return of some of the original cast?!
Joey has confirmed he'd be up for a reunion at some point, however he didn't have his sights set on Sugar Hut as the venue, or anywhere in Essex at all.
Speaking to Reveal about a potential reunion show starring the original cast, he said:
"Yeah why not? I might be living on my own tropical island by then, so everyone would have to fly out. I'd call it Sparkles Island. Everything would be sparkly."
Has he decided to just bring some sparkle to the set instead?
Reveal has contacted TOWIE reps for comment.
