The Only Way is Essex star Joey Essex has reportedly been screen-tested for The Xtra Factor.

The 23-year-old I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! star is believed to be going through an auditioning process to co-host the popular show, which follows The X Factor.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Joey has been a big hit for ITV2 and has a lot of fans out there.

"The Xtra Factor is all about being big and brash, and having Joey on board would bring a lot of attention.

"But it is an hour-long show that goes live for the performance shows on Saturday and Sundays. Could he handle that?"

MTV host Laura Whitmore and Radio1 DJ Sarah-Jane Crawford are also rumoured to be considered for the gig.

The new series of The X Factor kicks off in August.
