‘I’m dat­ing a few dif­fer­ent girls’

Closer (UK) - - Interview -

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.”
