It has been reported that unlikely couple Stephanie Pratt and Joey Essex have split, just weeks after getting together on E4′s Celebs Go Dating.
They have yet to make it public via their own social media platforms, but it seems that the TOWIE and Made in Chelsea personalities’ romance is over already.
Their relationship had flown in the face of advice from the show’s elite dating agency experts but it now seems they may have been right after all.
According to The Sun, a source close to the Educating Joey Essex star, said: “Joey wasn’t up for spending every minute in Chelsea with Stephanie.
“He genuinely fell for her and even though they were an unlikely couple, he hoped it could turn into something more serious.
“But he realised it was never going to work with him spending so much time away from home.”
The news came less than a month after Stephanie posted a cosy snap of the couple, adding: “Have fun in Americaaaa!! Pls bring some lucky charms cereal home @joeyessex!!!”
The pair got together towards the end of the series, which saw a swanky central London dating agency attempt to match reality TV stars with ordinary people looking for a celebrity date.
They turned up to the final programme’s dinner party hand in hand, appearing deliriously happy to have found each other.
But, sadly, it seems that Joey and Stephanie won’t be 2016′s answer Romeo and Juliet/West Side Story after all.
This means, lucky ladies, that Joey is back on the market!
