But where does the 31 year old call home when he’s not on the road performing?
The star has stayed grounded and lives in a modern bungalow next door to his dad.
Opening the doors to his home for a house tour for his YouTube channel, Joel revealed the unique features of his abode including a music studio, gym and a DJ booth for his live stream performances.
The music star’s matte black Range Rover sits on the drive of his home, while inside he has plaques for his singles proudly framed on the wall, including when Love Island anthem Sorry and Lonely went platinum in the UK.
Due to lockdown Joel has had to get creative when it comes to performing so he has brought the club to him and made a DJ booth in his front room.
Standing in front of his DJ decks he explains: “Obviously during lockdown I’ve been doing loads of live streaming so it’s basically turned into a massive DJ booth. As you can see I’ve got the green screen up.”

“This is my bedroom. This is where the magic happens, well not much magic has been happening during lockdown,” he laughs.
One of the most important rooms in Joel’s home is his music studio and he says of it: “This is where the real magic happens”.
As well as a comfy-looking navy sofa, Joel has a black iMac for his work and the cover of Muscle & Fitness UK magazine when he was the cover star.
He said: “I’ve actually got have another studio that I work out of in London in Kings Cross but during lockdown that’s been closed so I’ve been doing what I can here and I’ve also been doing my radio show on KISS from here, too.”

Making a joke about his time on Geordie Shore and not being able to handle his alcohol, Joel laughed: “It hasn’t been opened. You guys know I can’t drink.”
The star, who has a dog called Coops, dated cast member Sophie Kasaei for six years until 2017 and appeared on the show until 2013.
But Joel’s “favourite” part of his home is his huge garden, which also features a gym. “My dad actually lives next door to me so it’s been cool hanging out with him and he does my garden,” he said.
“This is where it goes down. I’ve been doing my workouts in here every morning and it does the job.”
The large space features various workout equipment and an inspirational quote and photo of Arnold Schwarzenegger as well as Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa.
And based on Joel’s Instagram pictures it looks like the workouts are paying off!
