TOWIE's Joey Essex didn't know who Denise Van Outen was, offends Alex Reid

JoeyThe Only Way Is Essex's Joey Essex had absolutely no idea who the show's voiceover Denise Van Outen was until he found out during an interview!

In a recent chat with Fabulous magazine, the 21-year-old nightclub promoter was quizzed on who he'd snog, marry and avoid out of Essex girls Van Outen, Stacey Solomon and Chantelle Houghton.

We think it's fair to say he isn't the brightest bulb in the box, but we were rather surprised to see his response was: "Who's Denise Van Outen?"

When the mag pointed out that she narrates the show he stars in, he further embarrassed himself by asking: "What's 'narrates'?"

After it was explained to him, he said: "I've never seen her. Is she fit? Can I Google her? How do you spell her name? O-U-T-E-N? Ah, she's well fit!

"Right, well, I'd marry her, snog Stacey thingy, and avoid Chantelle. She used to get about a bit didn't she?"

As if that wasn't enough, Joey's comment about Chantelle offended the Big Brother star's current beau Alex Reid, who tweeted him to say: "Thought we were friendly, guess not after ur salacious defamatory comment in Sun bout @chantellehought. I expect an apology."

Might be worth fetching the popcorn for this one!
