The school which educated TOWIE star Joey Essex has refused to comment on his apparent inability to master basic skills.

The former West Hatch High School pupil, 23, is currently taking part in ITVs “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here” and is the bookies favourite to win.

Since the show begun on Sunday, Mr Essex has claimed he cannot tell the time or blow his nose.
But his former school has refused to comment on his education.

Headteacher Frances Howarth said: “During his time at West Hatch Secondary School Joey Essex was a warm, friendly and likeable pupil.

“However for reasons of confidentiality we are not willing to comment on an individual’s time at the school.

“We wish Joey lots of luck in the current series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and with the rest of his career.”
