All Star Family Fortunes Christmas Special: Vernon Kaye calls TOWIE’s Joey Essex ‘clueless’
The cast of TOWIE and Benidorm battle recently recorded this year’s All Star Family Fortunes Christmas Special and host Vernon Kay was surprised by just how thick some of the stars actually were.
The hunky presenter told The Sun’s Buzz magazine that The Only Way Is Essex celebrity Joey Essex was particularly simple and admitted:
“It’s a shame we can’t show some of the off-cuts of the show, particularly of Joey.”
“I couldn’t believe that a young man in his day and age could be so clueless about life – and I really mean that in the nicest possible way.”
“I am in no way dissing him, but that boy needs to learn a bit of common sense.”
Joey did “eventually!” get one question right in the end, says Vernon, but he continued:
“But I don’t think Joey grasped the concept that the show actually finds out what people had said as answers. He was like: ‘Wow, look at all these bright lights…’ And I kept wondering: ‘Joey, are you really in the room?’”
This will be an interesting Christmas special!
