Joey and Jessica: TOWIE's next big romance?
Joey Essex and Jessica Wright will be the ''next big 'TOWIE' couple'', according to their co-star Gemma Collins
Joey Essex and Jessica Wright will be the "next big 'TOWIE' couple".
The pair's 'Only Way Is Essex' co-star Gemma Collins believes the duo - who enjoyed a passionate snog during the series three season finale, much to the shock of their friends - will become close over the coming months, and she thinks Jess will help to mend Joey's "broken heart" following his split from Sam Faiers in July.
Gemma wrote in her column for Closer magazine: "Joey Essex and Jessica Wright had a pash snog and I predict they're going to be the next big 'TOWIE' couple.
"She's a sweet girl who can help heal his broken heart after his split from Sam Faiers. If he wants to take her on a date, I'd suggest The Ritz, Joe would think it's reem."
However, Sam - who had a four-month relationship with Joey - was less thrilled by the pairing, admitting she was "upset" to see her ex-boyfriend kissing her "really good friend".
She recently said: "Nobody saw that coming - let alone me! I was a bit upset because I've known Jess for years and we're really good friends - but at the end of the day, I don't think Jess and Joey will get it on properly, I think it was just a heat-of-the-moment kiss on the dance floor."
