How old is Joey Turner? Is he the youngest ever cast member to star on The Only Way Is Essex?

The Only Way is Essex has been going strong for a huge 24 series in 2019.

The show is never short of drama and it looks like there’s no shortage of sassiness in Essex with the new array of cast members to season 24.

Joey Turner is one of the newbies in 2019 and he certainly hasn’t shied away from the agg!

So, how old is Joey? Here’s everything you need to know…

Joey Turner: Age

A newcomer for series 24, Joey is one of the youngest cast members on TOWIE.

Joey is 17 years old which explains why he’s never in the club scenes of the show.

Although Joey is young, by the look of his Instagram, he’s a bit of a party animal.

Is Joey Turner the youngest TOWIE cast member ever?

Joey is currently the youngest cast member on TOWIE.

However, he’s not the youngest ever, as ex-cast members also appeared on the show when they were 17.

Jasmin Walia worked as an extra on the show when she was 15 – 16 years old and then joined the show as a cast member in 2012 when she was 17.

Ex-TOWIE star Sam Faiers was 18 years old when she started out on the show in 2010, as was Megan McKenna.

Megan McKenna’s younger sister, Milly, also featured on the show when she was 17 years old in 2016.

Joey Turner and Gemma Collins

Joey’s managed to land himself a fantastic job after appearing in series 24 of TOWIE.

He’s impressed Essex’s leading lady and bagged himself the role of ‘the GC’s assistant’.

Gemma Collins gave Joey a quick run through of what working for her would be like in episode 10 and warned him that if he’d gotten the number of sugars in her tea wrong, he’d have been fired.

To be fair Joey’s got to be the most stylish newcomer to the show, so a pairing of him and Gemma Collins? It’s a no brainer.
