Joey Essex has been signed to Select Model Management.

The 23-year-old star has landed his first ever modelling contract with the same agency that represents David Gandy, Jamie Dornan and Agyness Deyn and they're hoping to make the reality TV regular a ''global star''.

A spokesperson for Select's men's division told the MailOnline: ''We are really happy about having Joey Essex on board.

''We are a tough agency and are renowned for creating stars. As an agency, our reputation for booking frangrances/campaigns and film has created the biggest names in the industry.

''We saw Joey's potential for world domination with his UK following. Select Men will take him to the next level and make him a global star.''

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has been signed to the agency's Special Division joining Kelly Brook and 'Nasty' hitmaker Pixie Lott.

His debut shoot was captured by renowned photographer Elliott Morgan, who has worked with Daniel Radcliffe, Professor Green and One Direction in the past.

Joey's signing is not his first foray into the world of fashion and beauty, however, as the 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here' contestant has his own hair care range for Tesco and a 'Fusey' clothing store in Essex.
