Towie’s Joey Turner reacts to concern from fans who begged him to ‘get help’ after shocking Instagram post

FORMER Towie star Joey Turner has reacted to concern from fans who have begged him to "get help" after his shocking Instagram post.

The 20-year-old worried his followers after sharing black and white photos, which showed his dramatic image change since leaving the reality show.

Speaking out for the first time, Joey told fans: "I am not your role model".

"Thanks to everyone who has messaged me with kind words," he wrote in a statement.

"I really appreciate you all.

"I'm a 20-year-old student, I'm not on TV. I'm a student like any other and I am not your role model, so if you want someone to look up to I suggest putting someone else on a pedestal because I am not him."

Joey sparked concern after posing in ripped tights, a crop top and socks as he gazed at the camera.

In other photos, he perched on a wall, wearing snakeskin trousers and a tiger print top.

And the ex-reality star slipped into a black dress, accessorising with a cross chain and balaclava mask.

One worried fan commented: "The more you post the more concerned I am getting 😩."

Another said: "TOWIE friends please check he is ok."

A third wrote: "Very very sad."

Joey became a firm favourite on Towie after joining with a wave of new cast members in 2019.

Joey was seen on TV sobbing as he quit Towie five months ago in emotional scenes.

He revealed he's going back into education after dropping out when he was approached by show bosses.

"I'm leaving Essex," he said.

"I've applied to Manchester unis to study fashion design."

Pal Chloe Brockett burst into tears - leaving teenage Joey emotional as he explained about his choice to quit reality TV.
