TOWIE star Joey Essex was robbed of his flash watch in a car park in Hammersmith and Fulham.
Club promoter Essex, who insists on Twitter that Essex is his real name, was attacked by two mugges posing as fans.
They threw him to the ground then wrenched the £10,000 Rolex from his wrist.
Recounting the incident which happened at 12.30pm yesterday (Tuesday) the 21-year old said: “I got a knock on my car window asking if I was Joey Essex and if I would have my picture taken.
“We did the picture and when I put some money in the parking ticket machine, the geezers got hold of me and threw me over.
“It wasn’t until I got up that I realised they had nicked my watch and when I hit one of them back, he got out a knife,” he told The Sun.
No arrests have been made.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Members of the Priority Crime unit are investigating an allegation of robbery.”
