TOWIE's Joey: My hair love affair
Joey Essex has revealed his trademark hairstyle has become a real hit with TOWIE fans.
The reality TV star and nightclub promoter says he has spotted replicas of his coiffured do - dubbed the 'walnut whip' - on high streets the length and breadth of Essex.
He said: "I've been doing it for years, now everyone's copying it. Everyone's got it.
"I literally see Joey Essex walking about everywhere, random geezers."
Joey recently split up with co-star Sam Faiers, but didn't rule out a reunion when the ITV2 show returns to screens.
"We're just friends. In the next series we might get back together, we might not, you never know," he teased.
Meanwhile, former TOWIE lovebirds Lauren Pope and Kirk Norcross were spotted partying separately at V Festival in Chelmsford, with Kirk enjoying the festivities in the Strongbow tent and Lauren enjoying the luxurious surrounds of the Virgin Media Louder Lounge.
Lauren admitted she wasn't sure what was in store for the next series of the hit show - or whether she might rekindle her relationship with her ex.
"I don't know to be honest, I don't even know myself," she said. "We've got three weeks left until we start filming, so whatever's going on in our lives at that point, who knows."
The glamour model added: "It's very surreal, that's for sure having everyone know what's going on in your life."
