Dancing On Ice hopeful Joey Essex has claimed he is mates with a ghost.
The reality telly star said he befriended the spook after finding it haunting his house. Joey, 32, said: "I lie in bed and think about ghosts sometimes. There’s one who comes into my room.

"It’s well annoying. Honestly I see it all the time, it walks round my house. I used to be scared of ghosts but because I see this one a lot I’m used to it. He’s my mate.
"I go into the kitchen and say ‘Alright ghost?’ It’s like a boy of about 18. I just see him whizz past me in time for me to say ‘What’s happenin’?’
"I never really thought about ghosts when I was younger because I didn’t see them. But now I see dead people."
Joey also told Daily Star Sunday he has believed in spirits ever since one haunted him at his old flat.
He said: "When I got my first flat designed this lady was going to put a deer head on the wall.
"I said, ‘Please don’t put that deer head on the wall’, but she put it up.
"One day I was staring at it and one day it flew off the wall – it scared the s**t out of me, and I’ve believed in spirits ever since."
Joey once went hunting for aliens near Las Vegas in his Towie spin-off series Educating Joey Essex.
And in his memoirs he admitted that the experience confirmed his belief in extra-terrestrial life.
He said: "I’ve always thought there was other life out there and now I definitely believe in aliens 100%.
"I went to a meeting with all these people sat round chatting about their abductions – although I thought they meant adoptions at first.
"They were all really normal looking but the stuff they were coming out with was mad.
"I actually believe in spirits even more than aliens."
Joey is set to hit the ice over the weekend as he makes his debut on the ice.
