TOWIE's Joey Essex Attacked And Robbed At Knife Point

The Only Way Is Essex star Joey Essex was attacked and robbed yesterday in a carpark in Hammersmith London, by muggers posing as fans.

The star had his £10,000 watch stolen during the scuffle, with the attackers pulling a knife on the 21 year-old as he bought a parking ticket.

Joey told The Sun: “I got a knock on my car window asking if I was Joey Essex and if I would have my picture taken.

“We did the picture and when I put some money in the parking ticket machine, the geezers got hold of me and threw me over.

“It wasn’t until I got up that I realised they had nicked my watch and when I hit one of them back, he got out a knife,” he added.

The reality TV star believed his muggers recognised his red smart car and followed him into the car park.

Police confirmed that they are dealing with the incident, a statement said: "Officers from the Robbery Squad at Hammersmith and Fulham are investigating the incident."

This isn’t the first time the TOWIE cast have been targeted.

Joey’s girlfriend Sam Faiers and her sister Billy were beaten up last autumn while Lauren Goodger and Lydia Bright have both had their shops vandalised. We hope Joey gets his watch back!
