James Argent thinks Joey Essex would fancy Amy Willerton since she is "a beautiful girl"
James Argent thinks Amy Willerton is a "good catch" for Joey Essex.
The 23-year-old 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has grown close the brunette beauty - who was crowned Miss Universe Great Britain 2013 - on this year's 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here' and Arg believes his co-star Joey could fall for the "beautiful" model, while admitting he also fancies her.
He told New! magazine: "She's a beautiful girl, I'm pretty sure he would fancy her. I certainly do!
"If you're Miss GB you've got to be intellectual, attractive, a public speaker and confident. So yeah, I think she would be a good catch."
Arg admitted he is keen for Joey to "move on" following his emotional split from his ex-fiance Sam Faiers but thinks it will be hard for anything romantic to happen between him and Amy while they're in the jungle.
He said: "It [the split] is still fairly raw, so I don't know how he can be completely over it. They are friendly with each other now but Joey has definitely got to move on.
"I think to be in the middle of the jungle, with cameras all around and you're doing all the tasks, I don't think you've necessarily got a lot of time alone, or many romantic moments that could warrant a kiss."
Although Arg can't make it out to Australia to support his pal in the jungle he is proud of Joey - who has been publicly nominated for all but one of the gruesome Bushtucker trials - and is organising a party for Joey on his return to Essex.
He said: "I think he's doing really well. I'm proud of him. Unfortunately because of work commitments I can't get out to Australia. But I think I'm holding a welcome back party for him, a local get-together."
