Reality TV star: Joey Essex, who appeared in Im A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!, is visiting Preston

He’s gotten used to dealing with creepy critters after his stint in the I’m A Celebrity jungle but will Joey Essex be ready for Preston?

The reality TV star of The Only Way Is Essex will be making an appearance at Baluga Bar on Church Street in the city on January 4, kicking off the New Year with a bang.

Joey, who is rumoured to be dating his campmate, beauty queen, Amy Willerton after their flirtations in the Australian jungle, follows in the footsteps of some of the biggest names in the country to appear at the Preston bar such as BBC 1Xtra DJs, X Factor stars and fellow TOWIE alumni.

Owner Gary Meehan who openeed Baluga Bar at Easter 2012, said: “2014 looks like it’s going to be our best year so far and what a way to start it.

“It has been a tough year for bars and clubs in Preston but we’ve worked hard to maintain our standards is customers and customer service, attracting not only the best that Preston has to offer but also delivering some of the biggest names in the country.”

As a thank you to their customers, Baluga bar is offering anyone who buys an advance ticket to see Joey Essex a ticket to their New Years Eve party absolutely free.

Tickets are now on sale priced at £10 and are available from.skiddle.com or direct from the bar.#

And Joey isn’t the only TOWIE star to visit Preston.

Recently, his ex-girlfriend, Samantha Faiers and her sister, Billie, opened a pop-up store of their Essex-based boutique Minnies - a family run business created in spring 2011 - at the city’s Fishergate Centre.

And Mario Falcone, who also appeared in Celebrity Big Brother was at Balgua bar back in October.

The bar will also be hosting a Boxing Day BBC 1Xtra party with DJ Marcus Bronzy and local legend, Nick Carter.
