The Only Way Is Essex star Joey Essex came to Leeds today to meet and greet fans to celebrate the launch of his autobiography ‘Being Reem’.

Hundreds of fans gathered from as early as 7am at the White Rose Shopping Centre just to see him up close as he signed copies of his books and even t-shirts at around 12:30pm.

One lucky fan Rebecca Foster from Bramley and her friend Harley Rodgers from Armley, got the chance to meet Joey in an exclusive meet and greet after winning an online competition.

Rebecca said: “I was so excited to win the White Rose competition, my friends are all really jealous. Joey was so lovely, I can’t wait to read his book and show off my pictures with him when I’m back at school.”

Joey’s autobiography, ‘Being Reem’, charts the star’s rise to fame as a cast member on the ITV2 hit show TOWIE, as well as his time in the ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’ jungle.

It also deals with more serious themes such as the loss of his mother at a young age after she battled with depression.
