The 24-year-old reality TV star has taken to Twitter and Instagram to express his delight after finding out that his moggie Prince Essex had returned, after being told it had gone missing while he has been holidaying in Dubai.

Along with a picture of Prince, Joey wrote: @"We found him!!! So happy...I love you Prince"

Earlier today (21.04.15), the former 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' contestant wasn't quite so happy, begging his followers to help him find the feline, along with the hashtag FindPrince.

Joey wrote: "MY CAT HAS BEEN STOLEN or LOST! @PrinceEssex please if you see him bring him back please. Thank you !!! (sic)"

He then later added: "Please help me find my cat everyone @PrinceEssex ... I want him back when I get home from Dubai #FindPrince (sic)"

It looks like the former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star isn't having a good week, as his ex Sam Faiers revealed she split from him for the "sake of her sanity" on Sunday (19.04.15).

She said: "He plays on the 'Little Boy Lost' act and has always had a real skill for twisting things round to suit him because he has never really been made to grow up and take responsibility for himself.

"That's why we had to break up, for the sake of my sanity. I hoped it would end in marriage and children, but in the end I didn't know who he was any more."
