‘I’m dating a few different girls’
He’s previously been linked to Amy Willerton and Sam Faiers, and now, Joey Essex, 28, admits he’s multi-dating.
The former TOWIE star says, “I’m not in a relationship, even though the headlines say “girlfriend”. I’m dating a few girls. It’s all good – really, really good. I’ve had enough of having just one [girl]. If I’m seeing someone and it’s not serious, I say to them, ‘I don’t want a girlfriend.’”
His last relationship in the spotlight was with Made In Chelsea star Stephanie Pratt, 32, after the pair met on Celebs Go Dating in 2016. Although they broke up after just three months.
But Joey reveals that, if he finds The One, he’ll stop playing the field. He says, “If the right girl did come along
and I was besotted, maybe I’d settle down – but I’ve been with so many girls, I just don’t see the point of being in another relationship and it not working out. I might as well know the next girl is definitely The One before saying, ‘Right, do you want to be together?’”
And while so many female reality stars are resorting to cosmetic surgery, he says he prefers the natural look.
Joey says, “I’ve got nothing against surgery – if that’s what makes you happy, then do it. I’ve always said I like natural-looking girls, but I’m not really bothered.” He’s also protective of Lauren Goodger, who’s been trolled for her looks, saying, “You can’t single out Lauren. I don’t think there’s one girl in Essex I know that hasn’t had work done.”
