Lizard Lick and Joey Essex on The Mag

The next hour-long summer special of The Magazine is set to see Sarah Travers encounter monster trucks, the Lizard Lick Towing crew, stand-up comedy, and the inimitable Joey Essex.

Sarah finds herself surrounded by metal and muscle as she heads to this year's Truckfest Ireland, which took place at Balmoral Park in Lisburn on 16-17 August.She chats to Lizard Lick's Ron Shirley and his cousin Johnny, even daring to ask just how real their US show - which sees them getting into all sorts of trouble as they repossess vehicles - can get."The first two seasons, the first 56 episodes, 100% (real). And then I got stabbed," Ronnie casually reveals, of the 'improvised reality' show.Ooookay then.@lizardlicktowin in town for @Truckfest_Live @UTVMag pic.twitter.com/IBFyEPlGDX— sarah travers (@TraversSarah) August 17, 2014Another Truckfest celebrity guest and ex-TOWIE star Joey Essex talks to Sarah about his life since leaving the Australian jungle on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!It's been pretty reem, but there's just one problem ..."I still don't know how to tell the time," he admits, showing Sarah his watch to get her to check if it's set to the right time.
