TOWIE: Charlie King, Ricky Rayment & Lauren Pope decked out in 80′s fancy dress to celebrate Joey Essex birthday
Nothing says Essex more than a themed costume party, and Joey Essex is taking us back to the 80′s for his.
Joey is celebrating his birthday in typical The Only Way Is Essex fashion, by throwing an elaborate and extravagant 80′s themed party, and pictures in today’s Sun newspaper show all the cast pulling out all the stops dressing in lycra and lace with all the trimmings – except Lauren Goodger who obviously didn’t read the invitation correctly and turned up wearing a black dress resembling the sort that the Dowager Countess wears in Downton Abbey (she must have thought it meant 80 years of age).
Joey doesn’t actually turn 22 until August, but show producers brought the festivities forward so that it could all be captured for the current series of the hit ITV2 reality show.
Charlie King, who has recently reportedly been making a play for Goodger, literally had the king of all outfits, well the king of pop of all outfits as he dressed as Michael Jackson from his bad video.
Also dressed for the occassion were Ricky Rayment who sported a particularly hideous pink shell suit with a $ chain and blonde wig and Lauren Pope in pink ripped leggings and white leotard perfecting the Fame look and Chloe Simms who wore lace and bows similar to an early Madonna.
The Only way Is Essex can be seen on Sunday and Wednesday nights at 10pm on ITV2/ITV2 HD.
