Joey Essex admits he's closer than friends with Amy Willerton and he can't wait to show the world the pair's "sexual tension"
Joey Essex and Amy Willerton are "closer than friends".
The 21-year-old hunk admits he's developed feelings for the stunning model after meeting her on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' and he can't wait to get back to the UK and rekindle the "sexual tension" between them.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "Amy is real caring, she's easy-going and she's cool. She's a really nice girl and I proper like her -- like, really like her.
"We were always having a flirt and a cuddle, and saying, 'Do you want to go down to the creek for a bath?' and then going to the shower and mucking about and that.
"There was sexual tension but we couldn't do anything because there isn't any privacy in there. There are 12 people, cameras and millions of people watching.
"It would have been nice to show everyone what is happening with us because we are closer than friends, although we are not in a relationship."
However, Joey is also keen to reignite his romance with ex-fiancee Sam Faiers, who he split with earlier this year, by planning two nights of passion when he returns to Essex on Wednesday (11.12.13) after his other campmates advised him to stay away from Amy because she's a "lying cheat who would break his heart"
Alfonso Ribeiro is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "She is a liar. Do I like her? Well when she came out the jungle with Joey, Rebecca [Adlington] and I only gave hugs to Joey!"
