Opening up about how he landed the role, the TV personality said: "I've been cast for a film recently actually.

"I had to send in tapes and photos dressed up in the role they want me to play and I'm pretty sure I've got the go ahead to do that now so that'll be awesome.

"It's a film that's almost based on reality TV stars, you kind of get famous. It sounds exciting!"

Joe rose to fame after starring on the hit ITV series Love Island in 2019, but it seems the star is ready to ditch his title as a "reality star" in favour of becoming a fully fledged actor.

When asked if it's always been in his plan, he explained that although it wasn't, acting and drama has always been something he's thought about.

He said: "When I was younger, it [acting] was something I was really interested in. My brother and sister both went to The Brit School, which is an acting school.

"My brother was in Harry Potter, but as an extra funny enough, and my sister always did West End and in the end they both left it. My brother is now a plumber and my sister is a stay-at-home mum.

"It got to the point where I could've went to school and I was doing rugby at the time and my dad would rather I pursue rugby than acting so I stayed at my school where I was, played rugby and then also pursued acting up until sixth form."
