Joey Essex wants to move to the US because he is too famous in the UK.

The former "The Only Way Is Essex" star has claimed that his fame is out of control in the UK and he hopes to relocate to America for a "fresh start".

He told The Sun: "In England I can't walk down the street without a hat on. I want a fresh start in America.

"I'm going to America soon to meet agents. I've been offered presenting but I don't feel like me when I do it, all I want to do is be Joey Essex."

Meanwhile, Joey is currently starring in new E4 show "Five Star Hotel" alongside former co-star Lydia Bright, "Geordie Shore's Holly Hagan, "Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews, and "Ex On the Beach" star Ashley Cain but recently revealed he was finding it tough.

"I was working behind the counter, doing reception work, cleaning the pool, taking guests to the room, getting up at 7am making teas for people."

Joey also claimed that whilst some of the celebrities were busy partying and not taking their job seriously, he was determined to "keep it professional".

He added: "I tried taking it professionally. Out of all of everyone I kept it professional but at the same time had fun."

"Five Star Hotel" sees the five celebrities work together to make sure their guests are happy, or they will put the hotel at risk of losing its prestigious five star rating.

A press release for the show read: "Joey, Spencer, Lydia, Holly and Ashley will have to work together to show their guests a good time to keep their Five Star rating. But as the temperatures rise in the Mediterranean, will the celebrities be able to keep their cool under pressure? Will anyone find some summer loving? And will they manage to get up in time to serve breakfast?"
