Joey Essex is on selfie ban

Joey Essex has put himself on a selfie ban for a month.

The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star has vowed not to use his camera - unless he's capturing scenery - for four weeks because he's become "addicted" to taking shots of himself.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "I'm a selfie addict. In the last few years or so, I've been lucky enough to travel the world. I've been to Italy, I've been to France, and I've even been to Australia

"The problem with them is I don't remember any of these places because I've realised all my photos are just selfies.

"Let's banish the duck pouts, do away with the bathroom selfies, throw out those dangerous selfie sticks."

Meanwhile, it seems cameras aren't the only thing the 25-year-old hunk is banishing from his life as he's also determined to stay away from girls for the time being.

Joey - who recently romanced Stephanie Pratt - said: "I'm seeing a few different people ... I've decided I don't really feel like I want a girlfriend at the moment. I don't see the point."

And Joey is adamant he'd never rely on a dating site like Tinder - a mobile app that connects people in the same area - because it's "pointless."

He said: "Wouldn't people look at my profile just because I'm Joey Essex? It could be like 'Catfish'. It could be a man!"
