Joey Essex tells Dan Wootton his saucy summer confession
'I went to the Greek island of Zante when I was 17,' Joey, 22, tells Now's Dan Wootton.
'It was so weird - when I first got off the coach, I found my mate lying outside the hotel on a stretcher with blood all over him.
'He said he'd been beaten up when he was drunk. It literally was just like The Inbetweeners Movie.'
Joey has only 'got close' to having sex on the beach but he has happy memories of love under the sun.
'It was years ago in Marbella, with a girl from home who I'd known since I was little,' he recalls.
