HUNDREDS of people queued around the block to get the chance to meet TOWIE star Joey Essex in Chelmsford on Monday.

The 23-year-old went to the HMV store in the city’s High Chelmer Shopping Centre to sign copies of Joey Essex Presents Essex Anthems compilation CD which went on sale.

Fans lined up from the shop all the way along Tindal Street just to catch a glimpse of the star.

Along with signing copies of the CD, Joey also spent time chatting and taking selfies with those who queued up to see him.
