Joey Essex has landed in the Love Island villa on the pursuit of romance, leaving behind his incredible Essex mansion.

The former TOWIE star, who bought the property for £1.6 million in 2014, previously gave fans a look inside as he opened up his home to MTV cribs. It's seriously impressive, boasting three walk-in wardrobes, his "very own Essex beach club" complete with pool, bar and hot tub. Plus, he has a spacious garage for his white Lamborghini.

The living room features a huge L-shaped sofa for lounging, and has leather clad walls for a luxurious finish. Meanwhile, the guest room has a quirky gothic-looking bed with a spikey leather headboard, embellished with the initials 'J.E.'

Joey shared a peek inside his kitchen in 2019, showing the sleek white cupboards with grey worktops, American-style fridge-freezer and breakfast bar lined with red stools.

In snaps shared on Instagram, we can see his ginormous swimming pool - the perfect place to spend the day when the sun is shining. The star has a white seating area by the pool with pink and blue pillows, and it looks just like the Love Island villa. Joey also has a basketball net. A wooden fence and high bushes surrounding the space gives Joey some much needed privacy.

In the snap of his garden, from when he hosted a party with Desperados, we can also see that the star has a bar by his pool where a DJ is playing.

Joey reportedly moved to Dubai after a break-in at his Essex mansion in 2022, according to Essex Live, and took a step back from TV.

The star was spotted meeting with officials at the landmark building the Burj Al Arab, who gave him an Esaad card to mark his "new home". The card provides holders with deals to save money across education, health, restaurants and entertainment.

It's believed that the break-in has left the star "struggling with the trauma" and has been reported that he hasn't been able to shake off the ordeal. An insider told the Sun last year he believed the United Arab Emirates country is safer and would give him peace of mind. "Joey has started house-hunting in Dubai. He is planning to buy a base out there so he can jet off whenever he likes. Joey will be splitting his time between his home in Essex and his new place in Dubai."

"At the world's most luxurious hotel Burj Al Arab I met up with the Dubai Government," Joey wrote under the snaps of himself with the government officials. "They told me Dubai is now my home.

"Thank you to Mahmoud Al Burai & Shahab Ahmed Alsaadi for everything you have put in place for me and Dubai police, Dubai Tourism Board, Dubai media for getting in touch and taking the time to meet me and giving me the warmest welcome to their country."
