James 'Arg' Argent has admitted he is jealous of his 'Only Way is Essex' co-star Joey Essex's flirty relationship with blonde beauty Amy Willerton

James 'Arg' Argent is hoping Joey Essex will introduce him to Amy Willerton.

The 'Only Way is Essex' star admits he is jealous of his pal's new friendship with his 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' co-star, and Arg insists he is ready to step in when the pair leave the Australian jungle-based show as long as Joey doesn't want to start dating the blonde stunner.

He said: "She's lovely ... I am a bit jealous, yeah. If it doesn't work out with them two hopefully he'll introduce me to her after ... She's naturally pretty, she's well spoken, a bright girl."

While Arg is keen to have Amy for himself, he and his 'TOWIE' co-star Tom Pearce are hoping 'I'm A Celebrity' bosses don't sabotage Joey's chances of seeking a relationship with the former Miss Universe Great Britain by flying his former fiancee Sam Faiers to the jungle.

Tom said: "[It would] make it more awkward for Joey if he is trying to pull Amy."

Speaking to ITV's 'Daybreak', Arg added: "It'd be good entertainment value but I think one of the main reasons Joey was so looking forward to going to the jungle is to sort of get away from Essex, go off and do his own thing, find himself a bit and it'd be going backwards if Sam was to go out there."

Joey was also the focus of the majority of tweets about last night's (20.11.13) 'I'm A Celebrity' episode, according to the Virgin Media Hotlist.

The measurement tool found there were 79,787 tweets about the show, in which Joey defeated Matthew Wright at their second consecutive Bushtucker Trial, with 19,910 written about the 'TOWIE' hunk.
