Stephanie Pratt is dating Joey Essex
Reality TV beauty Stephanie Pratt is reportedly dating Joey Essex
Stephanie Pratt has reportedly fallen head over heels for Joey Essex.
The blonde beauty and the former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star met on 'Celebs Go Dating' and have since started dating.
A source told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: "Joey and Steph have been inseparable all week and haven't been able to keep their hands off each other.
"Joey's been staying over at Steph's home in Chelsea. They are already making plans for Christmas and talking about meeting each other's family."
Rumours of a burgeoning romance has been flying around ever since they recently appeared together on an episode of 'This Morning'.
However, the duo have remained noticeably tight-lipped about the status of their relationship, refusing to confirm whether they are friends or something more.
Regardless of whether they are or are not dating, it appears unlikely that Joey will join Stephanie on 'Made in Chelsea' in the immediate future.
An insider shared: "It's unlikely but could happen if things get serious. Joey actually gets on really well with a lot of the cast, including Jamie Laing and Binky Felstead. So who knows?"
The report comes shortly after 'Made 'n Chelsea' favourite Lucy Watson officially quit the programme after four years.
A spokesperson said: "After four amazing years on 'Made in Chelsea', Lucy feels that now is the right time to explore some other exciting opportunities and projects that she is passionate about.
"Being part of such a successful show has been an incredible experience for her, and she wishes everyone involved all the very best for the future."
