What You Sleighing? was shown on ITV2 on Thursday night and, much to everyone's delight (or mortification), Joey Essex came up with some very interesting theories about Christmas.

He's known for often saying the wrong thing when it comes to facts and general knowledge but his latest understanding of the term homophobia has left everyone cringing.

According to Metro, he said: "Some people don’t like to leave the house. They’ve got home-ophobia?"

What he was actually thinking of was agoraphobia, bless him.

Facepalm

His comments prompted quite the reaction on Twitter.
