He isn't the sharpest tool in the box and is the king of asking stupid questions.

And Joey Essex makes a rather unlikely hero given his total lack of common knowledge but today (Monday) he joined forces with girlfriend Sam Faiers to become Superman and Supergirl.

The couple were seen dressing up and performing all sorts of stunts to promote wi-fi at Alton Towers today (Monday).

The TOWIE couple dressed up as Superman and Supergirl to ride Air and flew into character for the occasion.

Sam posted a snap of herself and Joey raising their arms up ahead of their ride.

Joey can be seen pursing his lips together in his trademark pout for the snap.

The duo were displaying rather mixed emotions as they got on the ride, Sam appeared scared and held her hands up in the air, while Joey just looked confused.

The pair were also challenged to swim with a stingray but Sam chickened out of the dare because she was scared.

Joey was happy to get wet, and put his hair out of place, and climbed into the tank in a wetsuit.

Sam appeared apprehensive as her man climbed into the pool standing over his shoulder.

The pair also dressed up as ice cream vendors and had a go at making their own whippy ice-creams to promote the new free wi-fi service which is powered by The Cloud at the resort.

Sam decided to have a little fun with the sweet treat and was seen splattering it on Joey's face.

The couple are also set to ride Nemesis blind folded as part of their challenge.

Who is the kid with check trousers and no face who went on at least twice with them, all in different seats, with camera , without camera, the paying visitors must have been very happy

What's so interesting about these two media flirts? What have they done for the homeless or charity? All they do is parade around in front of camera's all the time. Why don't you tell us about Sam's father in prison!!! That would be more interesting. What crime did he commit again?

From Bondage to Superman. They have obviously decided the more they camp it up the more pennies they get. Cringe-making
