Fans are gutted Joey Essex quit Celebrity SAS (Picture: Channel 4)
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins fans are ‘gutted’ for Joey Essex after he crashed out of the competition.
The Only Way Is Essex star had made it to the final six of the intense training scheme, but failed to adapt when under interrogation.
Instead of drip-feeding information to his captors to protect his team, Joey instead stuck to his cover story..despite not really knowing it that well, to be honest.
It all came crashing down after a particularly brutal showdown with an interrogator, and Joey walked out, never to return.
And viewers at home were well and truly gutted for him – knowing that he had come such a long way.
‘Fair play to Joey, he did amazing,’ one fan wrote. ‘Shame he couldn’t keep it together when it mattered.’

Another added: ‘Joey [did] bloody well. I didn’t have a clue what was going on either.’
‘Gutted for Helen [Skelton] and Joey,’ another gutted viewer said. ‘Must be so hard knowing what’s the right to do during the interrogation.’
But Joey seems to know that he did a good job, at least.
