We have a feeling that what we’re about to tell you will divide opinion, but Joey Essex of The Only Way is Essex fame has just been given a modelling contract. Joey will join the likes of David Gandy and Fifty Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dornan in the Select Model Management books

“We are really happy about having Joey Essex on board ,” said a spokesperson for Select Men. “We are a tough agency and are renowned for creating stars. As an agency, our reputation for booking fragrances/campaigns and film have created the biggest names in the industry.

“We saw Joeys potential for world domination with his huge UK following, Select Men will take him to the next level and make him a global star.”

Does this mean that we can expect to see Joey as the face of a popular men’s fragrance in the near future? Could he be the new David Beckham and be the face and body of a major clothing brand? Only time will tell!

Are you pleased with Select’s newest signing?
