JOEY Essex has raked in an impressive £6million in recent years – and bagged himself a model girlfriend.
The 29-year-old is set to make his telly comeback on Ex On The Beach tonight after time away from the limelight to concentrate on building his empire.
Insiders close to the star have revealed he is now a multi-millionaire thanks to a series of wise investments, endorsements and his reality telly work.
And to top off his success, he’s now found love with Lorena Medina after meeting on the MTV dating show.
The couple were spotted looking incredibly loved up on the beach in Miami last week ahead of viewers seeing how they fell for each other.
Lorena is a well-known Mexican model, who lives in LA, but she has already visited Essex as the pair enjoy a long-distance romance.
Joey first found fame on The Only Way Is Essex in 2011 and despite only staying on the reality show for two years he has been one of the most successful stars to come out of it.
Joey, who’s rumoured to charge £50k for every PA, has appeared on a plethora of TV shows since his TOWIE journey ended.
Topping the lot was his £250k gig on The Jump in 2015 – the highest in the show’s history – and two years earlier he made £60k in the I’m A Celebrity! jungle.
He’s gone on to star in Celebs Go Dating, Five Star Hotel the current Celebrity MasterChef and Educating Joey Essex, which was so successful ITV2 commissioned a series.
Although his Fusey fashion business dissolved in 2016, Joey pulls in six figures for brand endorsements and last December partnered with McDonald’s and Jaffa Cakes.
Accounts for Joey Essex Management Ltd are looking healthy, too, with profits of over £400k, a £1.6m Chigwell mansion and £170k in the bank after selling his white Lamborghini.
His luxurious home, which he bought when he was just 24, recently featured on MTV Cribs and viewers were gobsmacked.
As well as the impressive inside, the home boasts an enormous garden complete with pool, beach bar and bubbling hot tub.
