I'M A Celebrity star Joey Essex is making sure he cashes in on his soaring fame – and his female fans certainly aren't complaining.

Despite persistent rumours that he is now dating I'm a Celeb co-star and British model Amy Willerton, Joey seemed like his Christmas had come early when he was surrounded by a host of lovely Irish ladies.

The cheeky chap touched down in Ireland for a whirlwind tour and caused a frenzy when he turned up at Earth Nightclub at the Westcourt in Drogheda on Sunday night.

After snacking on crocodile feet down-under, Joey had no problem downing a few pints of Guinness.

The former Only Way is Essex star sent female temperatures soaring at the nightclub where more than 1,000 revellers had turned out for the party.

Joey even tweeted a video showing himself being picked up by limousine from the steps of his plane as he arrived at Dublin Airport.

However, he didn't have much time to sample the delights of the capital – he enjoyed a lie-on at the Westcourt Hotel before hopping on a flight to England where he was due to make a final appearance before Christmas

“I have been working flat out since I arrived back from the jungle, so I am looking forward to Christmas with my family,” said the reality TV star.

“Joey was in great form and despite saying he didn't get much sleep he stayed in the club for hours,” a source said. “He enjoyed pints of Guinness and chatted with his female fans for ages.”

However, it seems the lovable rogue only has eyes for one woman amid reports he is now loved up with his I'm a Celeb co-star Amy Willerton.

While Joey is making the most of his post-show fame, jungle king Kian Egan has taken a break from work commitments to enjoy a quiet Christmas at home in his native Sligo.

The 33-year-old flew home to Ireland at the weekend with his wife Jodi Albert and son Koa (2).

Despite being flooded with work offers, Kian has said he won't think about them until the New Year.
