Series 2 may be over but I can assure you that Stylist-at-large still has all the latest gossip coming in from the The Only Way Is Essex crew.

It seems that following REEM party planner Joey Essex’s appearance in his trunks at Mark Wright’s ‘comeback’ pool party in the series 2 finale, that male swimwear sales have soared. High street chain Peacocks have announced that they are selling EIGHT pairs a minute, with sales rising by up to 140 per cent on the year.

Ben Smith, Head of Menswear at Peacocks said: “The Only Way is Essex may have seen sales rocket of fake tan and lashes but it’s not just female shoppers who are getting in the TOWIE mood.  Since shorts have become a staple item for one of the cast sales really have rocketted.  We’ve reached high summer levels of sales and it’s only May.

“The Essex effect combined with the fact that the catwalks also gave men’s floral shorts the thumbs up, means that while the first day of summer is still over a month away men really are showing their love for shorts, and their knees.”

And what better way for Joey to show off his pins than by whisking fellow cast-member, and girlfriend, Sam Faiers  on a romantic break to Majorca last weekend.

The cute couple were apparently seen holding hands on the Balearic island, and whilst Joey sported a pair of his infamous Seersucker blue and white shorts and a pink t-shirt, Sam apparently looked just as good in a navy dress, and nude sandals, as they held hands over dinner. Awwwww…..
