Joey Essex is 'dating' Stephanie Pratt
Joey Essex is reportedly dating Stephanie Pratt.
The 25-year-old hunk is believed to have struck up a romance with the 30-year-old 'Made in Chelsea' star after they hit it off while filming the new E4 show, 'Celebs Go Dating' earlier this month and had no qualms flaunting their new relationship while attending a party earlier this week in London.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "They started chatting as a result of the show and have got quite flirty. They've been in constant contact by text ever since and were not hiding anything at the party on Wednesday night. At one point they crept away to the back of the bar's terrace together and were being very tactful. He was telling everyone how much he fancies her and was following her around like a puppy."
But Stephanie - who found fame on the US TV show 'The Hills' - is no stranger to English men as she previously dated her former co-star Spencer Matthews before she was dumped in 2013 because the heartthrob felt "trapped" after she moved into his lavish home in the affluent area of London.
And Joey has had his own fair share of failed relationships in the past as he was previously engaged to Sam Faiers - who now has a baby with her current boyfriend Paul Knightley - but they split up in 2013 following a series of rows.
Meanwhile, it seems Joey is desperate to strike up a romance with anyone at the moment as he recently admitted he has an eye on former 'Geordie Shore' beauty Charlotte Crosby.
