It is true indeed that Joey Essex is seen with different girls on screen.

But did you know that he has been on and off the relationship off-screen as well? He dated his Celebs co-star but again broke up with her. So what’s the reason behind their split? Is Joey dating someone recently?

On an Instagram video posted on in October in the model's story, the two were seen sharing a kiss, which strengthened the claims of the two being together. Saying that Joey does not have a strong background of being in a long term relationship, which makes it a guessing game where the couple's relationship is headed. 

Former Co-Star Girlfriend

Joey Essex started dating Celebs Go Dating co-star Stephanie Pratt from Made In Chelsea and after filming in 2016 and began a relationship. Defending their romance on the E4 show in September of 2016, Joey said:

 'Why can't they just accept that I like her and she likes me?'

During the September episode of the show, the reality pair enjoyed a barbecue date as well as instantly became obsessed with each other.

The couple became so obsessed that Stephanie blew off another potential date straight after because of her new crush on Joey Essex.

However, their surprise union was said to have ruffled feathers as the dating agency aims to match celebs with non-celebs. The agency explained:

 'We've called Joey and Steph in because they've only had one date but it's already got very intense very quickly,'

On the other hand, Joey stated that: 'It hurts that they don't think this is real.' Though sharing an intimate bond with each other, the relationship did not last long for the pair.

Called It Off!

After just a few weeks together, Made in Chelsea star Stephanie Pratt and her boyfriend, former TOWIE entertainer Joey Essex called it quits on their relationship.

A source told MailOnline,

 'It's true that Steph and Joey have broken up. It hasn't worked out for a number of reasons, one of which was their schedules. When Steph was in LA she suggested that perhaps they should see other people because they were just from two very different worlds. 'But Steph wishes Joey all the very best and they have parted on good terms.'

Essex was later seen with a girl named TayTay on Celebs Go Dating, but it was not sure that the couple was dating. Essex is defiantly not gay as he has already been in two relationships with TOWIE star, Sam Faiers and Stephanie Pratt.

He was also engaged to his girlfriend Sam in 2013. Being a British television celebrity as well as a night club promoter, his net worth is that of $10 million. The Only Way is Essex star’s height is 5 feet 9 inches (1.76 m). As of 2019, he boasts a vast mansion and Lamborgini worth $200K in Chigwell, Essex.

The mansion is estimated to be around $1.6 million containing tennis pool as well as a private pool inside the property. Also, the villa consisted of expensive items, which gave the audience a hint of his lavish lifestyle.
