The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star believes there are similarities between himself and the British Prime Minister, but only recently realised politicians are "normal human beings".

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the ITV Gala, held at the London Palladium, he said: "I might as well run the world. All I'm saying is David Cameron runs the world, Joey Essex runs the world, well country."

The 25-year-old TV personality was recently on screens for the new series of 'Educating Joey Essex' and revealed what he learnt about the nation's leaders while creating a political special.

He explained: "I didn't really realise they were just normal human beings.

"I thought they was meant to be like kings and that and like Royal family. When you look at them they run the world almost. I'm exactly the same almost."

And he has plenty of ideas of what he could do to ensure people have "a reemer life" if he was voted into parliament.

He said: "There's a few things. I don't want to go too much into detail but I think people walk too slow on the streets at the moment.

"You know when you do shopping. There should be lanes but I'm not prime minister so I can't call that. I'd just make everyone have a reemer life you know."
