Joey confirmed that he and his fellow I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant Amy Willerton are in a relationship,¬†revealing that their¬†first date was amazing.

The TOWIE star told the Daily Mirror: “Our first date was amazing. I’m very happy. Look at her, she’s beautiful.”

It was lust at first sight for Joey, who said after he left the ITV show: “When I first Amy I thought “salty potato”, then I really looked at her and was like, “woaj, she’s beautiful”. But then I got to know her and I realised she’s actually a proper nice girl.”
