    Let's face it, it was all about Joey Essex. Confrontate anyone?

    1. Joey made a brilliant start to the show.

    ITV

    2. Especially when he made up a new word straight away. Confrontate anyone?

    4. Carlton Banks made his entrance. But he was most definitely not the Fresh Prince of skydiving.

    ITV

    5. And, well, Joey Essex certainly wasn't.

    ITV

    6. But he did a great Ali G impersonation.

    ITV

    7. Westlife's Kian Egan also joined. But was automatically Billy no mates when he wasn't picked for team red.

    ITV

    8. But then the red team had to choose between super hot Amy Willerton, or not so hot Matthew Wright. Such a toughy.

    ITV

    9. Joey gave it a split second thought and of course chose Amy, who he branded "a proper salt."

    ITV

    10. Then the yellow team lost out while team red enjoyed champagne on a yacht over night. Nice.

    ITV

    11. The choice of background music got a lot of attention.
