Joey Essex: The Wanted are just annoying - I'd rather be in One Direction

Joey Essex doesn't follow the crowd in terms of style
Could Joey Essex be the sixth member of One Direction?
Given the choice, Joey would rather be in One Direction than The Wanted as he doesn't get along with The Wanted boys.
'Definitely One Direction. Swerve The Wanted,' says Joey, 21.
'They're just annoying, man.'
The cheeky Essex boy met The Wanted boys in his younger days and they didn't hit it off at all.
'[It was] years ago when I used to go out with Pixie Lott around Essex,' Joey tells We Love Pop magazine.
'One of her friends used to go out with one of The Wanted and we didn't really see eye to eye.'
