"If I meet an alien, the one thing I'd definitely do, is get a selfie with him"
Joey is back on the learning curve and about to go where no man has gone before - in search of all things space age and supernatural in Educating Joey Essex - Space Cadet. 
It's one small leap for our favourite Essex boy when he heads off to Alabama to Space Camp, in a quest to learn how to be an astronaut. Having never graduated from anything in his life, Joey is desperate to pass his space camp course with flying colours - is he about to reach an educational milestone? 
His induction into the extra-terrestrial continues when he meets a woman, Tina Marie (TM), who claims she was abducted by aliens, but will Joey be convinced by her claims?
With Joey stating that his worst nightmare would be to be abducted by aliens, how will he feel about spending a night in the infamous Area 51? 
Joey Essex is ready for his next mission - but is the solar system ready for him?
