Joey Essex "can't be bothered" with his 'The Only Way Is Essex' co-star Jess Wright.
The 21-year-old hunk - who shared a saucy smooch with the brunette beauty during the last series of the ITV2 show - explained filming alongside Jess is "a bit weird" as she seems to think he has "palmed her off".
He said: "It's a bit weird filming with Jess again and I really don't know what's going on with her. She thinks I've palmed her off but whenever I ask her out to dinner she always brings a mate.
"She isn't showing me any attention, so I think it's easier if we don't speak. I just can't be bothered. I still fancy her but I'm not sure what she wants, so I'm keeping my options open with other girls."
Meanwhile, Joey admitted he is keen to catch up with former co-star Kirk Norcross - who quit 'TOWIE' to appear in 'Celebrity Big Brother' - as it's "ridiculous" how long ago he saw his pal.
Writing in his column for Now magazine, he added: "Kirk's been so busy since he left 'CBB' and I'm back filming 'TOWIE', so we haven't even had a chance to catch up yet.
"I really want to hook up with him soon - it's ridiculous how long it's been."
