A third of Brits want to a staycation to avoid airport chaos, says Premier Inn

Joey Essex went on the ultimate Great British staycation after a third of Brits want to do the same.

The former ‘The Only Way is Essex’ star went on a tour of the best these green and pleasant lands have to offer people who do not want to cope with the threat of airport travel chaos in association with Premier Inn.

The 32-year-old reality television personality visited many national landmarks, such as Bath Cathedral where he was given a bell ringing lesson and stood on the roof to peak into the 1000 year old Roman Baths that give the Somerset city its name.

According to research from Premier Inn, a third of British people are thinking about remaining at home for their hollies this summer. Their road trip also cashed in their findings that 74 per cent of Brits agreeing that as a nation we do not give enough credit our domestic tourist sites.

In an effort to remedy this, Joey hit up the Jane Austen Centre in the same city, where he donned some Regency garb worn by the characters in her many works of literature, such as ‘Pride Prejudice’ and ‘Emma’.

He also was tasked with trying local ‘delicacies,’ such as conker, which according to his tour guide are most beloved in London’s East End and a some ox tongue, which Joey did not like.

Joey also ventured to the House of Frankenstein to see the museum dedicated and inspired by Mary Shelley’s 1818 classic Gothic novel, where he learnt he and Frankenstein’s Monster both have a love of a “good smile” in common.
