Hundreds of fans queued for hours to see Joey Essex at his latest book signing. 

The former Towie star arrived at Tesco Highwoods in Colchester just before 6pm tonight to screams from youngsters who were all clutching copies of his Being Reem book. 


The television star turned model signed the books and had pictures taken with the fans. 

Some people had queued for almost eight hours to see him and the queue snaked the length of the store and round the aisles. 


Tesco had sold out of the book before Joey arrived but many fans had come prepared, with some even bringing gifts for the I'm a Celebrity star.  

Joey thanked all his fans for coming to the event and supporting him.
