Joey Essex learning the meaning of homophobia is Christmas TV gold
Joey Essex has come back to our screens for a Christmas special – and it didn’t disappoint.
The reality TV star shot to fame on The Only Way Is Essex some years ago.
Since then he’s stumbled into British hearts with his less than excellent knowledge of the world around him.
And last night’s Christmas special, What You Seighing? was no different.
Asked what homophobia is, he had a, er, odd understanding.
His attempt at the definition: “Some people don’t like to leave the house. They’ve got home-ophobia?”
I mean, not illogical. But definitely wrong.
Joey Essex "some people don't even like leaving their home cause they've got home-ophobia" ????
