Joey Essex and stunning model Amy Willerton have both confirmed they are single and hoping to find love on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!', which has prompted speculation to the pair might hook up in the jungle
Joey Essex and stunning model Amy Willerton are both looking for love on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The 'Only Way is Essex' hunk and the Miss Universe beauty have both confirmed they are single and ready to mingle on the ITV show, and Joey - who split from his former fiancee and co-star Sam Faiers earlier this year - is desperately hoping there will be someone in the jungle who takes his fancy.
He said: "I'd like to see a nice girl in the jungle shower. That would be lovely. Eye candy would be nice.
"I don't know who's going into the show. I never got to see the rumours because I've run out of internet. I've not got any 3G.
"But it would be nice if there's a pin-up in there. Salty potato! I can't wait to get in there."
Amy is also preparing to enter the Australian jungle-based show hoping to meet a potential lover, but admits she doesn't know who will be appearing on the programme.
She said: "I am completely and utterly single.
"I have no idea who is going in the jungle but I am going in knowing I might meet someone in there who is right - and then who knows what will happen.
"But I am really looking forward to it all as it is going to be such a challenge."
Joey is clear favourite to be crowned King of the Jungle this year with odds of 7/4 at William Hill, while Amy is an outsider at 25/1, but the bookmakers go 6/1 for a relationship to start on this year's 'I'm A Celebrity'.
A show source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Peter Andre and Jordan fell in love on the show, so you never know. Amy is a beautiful girl with an amazing body. Joey is going to think all his dreams have come true."
Snooker legend Steve Davis is 11/2 second favourite to win the show, followed by former Westlife singer Kian Egan (6/1) and Olympian Rebecca Adlington, Emmerdale's Lucy Pargeter, ex-'Strictly Come Dancing' professional Vincent Simone and 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' actor Alfonso Ribeiro (all 9/1).
