Former reality TV star Joey Essex is reportedly considering a move to Dubai following a break-in at his Essex home. The ex-The Only Way is Essex cast member was left ‘traumatised and emotional’ after a burglar took up to £1million in luxury watches and jewellery. The thief also reportedly made off with two of Essex’s favourite hats. The incident led Essex to consider leaving the country entirely.
Essex’s current home, located in a gated property, is said to have failed to meet his security standards. The former TV personality is said to be eyeing a move to Dubai where he can have a high level of personal security. Dubai is also known for its extravagant lifestyle and luxury property market so it is unsurprising that Essex is considering this particular destination. He already enjoys spending time in the city and spends two weeks there each year as a holiday.
As well as looking to relocate, Essex has also hired a personal security guard to help safeguard his current property. The cost of the guard, in addition to CCTV cameras and panic alarms, is said to be worth £50,000 a year. Essex is said to be the latest in a line of celebrities to hire highly trained personal security guards to protect their homes from burglars.
Essex’s decision to hire a personal security guard and consider moving overseas highlights the importance of home security for high profile individuals. The value of the items stolen from Essex’s home demonstrate the high risk such homes can be at to burglars. Security measures such as personal security guards, CCTV cameras and panic alarms can help to deter potential criminals and provide peace of mind for wealthy individuals.
