Joey Essex’s Girlfriends: Take A Look At His Dating History

Who are Joey Essex’s Girlfriends? We’ve delving into the love life of the TOWIE star and looking back at his (rather extensive) dating history…

From lamentable loss and Lamborghinis; to businesses and book-writing, Joey Essex – known for his good humour, good looks and, well, complete and utter lack of general knowledge – is constantly on our gossip radar.

So, it’s only natural to want to know who the lovable TOWIE heartthrob has been dating, right?!

The Essex star may not be your cup of tea, but he DEFINITELY brings hilarity, a bunch of brand new vocab and undeniable (but lovable) stupidness (we all remember that Richard and Judy gag) to everywhere he goes…

Let’s face it – he’s one of the greatest gifts reality TV has EVER given us (sorry, Gemma Collins).

So, nosy parkers, get yourself ready for a bit of juicy goss as we delve into Joey’s dating past…

2011- 2014 Joey and Sam Faiers

The pair first got together back in 2011 after they started filming for the Essex reality TV show. Joey popped the question to his fellow Only Way Is Essex colleague a year into dating but the engagement was short-lived: they broke up just four months later.

The couple then got back together in 2013, before Joey proposed to Sam for the second time….

Need a breather yet?!

The very same year, things went downhill for our fav Essex couple and they split for the second time. Yep, you guessed it – in 2014 (a year later) things were back on for the couple as they have it ANOTHER go! It probably came as no shock to friends, family and fans when they announced their final split ‘for good’ in 2014.

SPLIT – What happened?

When the Essex cast revealed they were heading to Marbella in 2014, we were certain that Sam and Joey were going to have the best holiday ever. We were all wrong. Following a few fiery arguments, Joey ended things shocking us all. A couple of months later, Joey ended our hopes of the couple getting back together after he kissed Sam’s friend Gionvanna Jackson. Not cool, Joey.

There was that time he paid £2,000 in a charity auction to go on a date with his ex – but despite his best intentions, the love just wasn’t really there.

2012- Joey and Amber Turner

Back in 2012, way before Amber Turner made her TOWIE debut, her and Joey had a fling. After many rumours, it was revealed that the pair got together during one of Joey and Sam’s (many) breaks.

2013 – Joey and Amy Willerton

Joey grew close to Amy Willerton (Miss Universe Great Britain) on TV during his time on I’m A Celeb in 2013, but after the show ended, they both insisted they were just friends (but we really weren’t convinced)…

2015 – Joey and Charlotte Stuchfield

After a (very) brief long-distance relationship with Bethany Hitch (who lived in Dubai), Joey got together with a new flame – Charlotte Stuchfield.

Speaking to the MailOnline at the time, the TV personality said:

‘She’s really young and doesn’t quite understand my life. I respect her and have told her it’s hard being in the limelight but she’s really easy-going and isn’t paranoid about anyone or anything.’

After being asked about moving in together with new GF, he said:

‘She keeps asking for a key but I’m saying, ‘no’. I’m not having it. Allow it. I’ve just bought my house as well.

‘It’s too early [to move in together], definitely not at the moment. We stay together a lot but we’ve only been together for three months.’

2016 – Joey and Stephanie Pratt

The TOWIE star wooed the MIC veteran after they met on E4 dating show Celebs Go Dating, but their relationship proved short-lived. Essex ended their three-month romance after he revealed they were spending too much time in Chelsea, instead of his hometown.

A source said:

“Joey wasn’t up for spending every minute in Chelsea with Stephanie.

“He genuinely fell for her and even though they were an unlikely couple, he hoped it could turn into something more serious.

“But he realised it was never going to work with him spending so much time away from home.”    

2016 – Joey and Durrani Popal

Three years ago, Joey was spotted meeting up with star of Dash Dolls’ show, Durrani Popal in LA. But unfortunately nothing came of their rumoured brief fling.

2017- Joey and Georgie Purves

Joey Essex girlfriend number 7. He dated the fashion stylist from London in Summer 2017 and things seemed to be going pretty well…

A source revealed: “While they’ve known each other for a while, things got more serious in the last few months – and they have even talked about moving in together.”

“They’ve been dating for several months now, but things have been hotting up of late.

“They went to Dubai last month and they spent Christmas together. He also met all of her friends at her 21st birthday party.”

However, the couple – who started off as friends – ended up splitting up later that year.

2018- Joey and Sabreena Diamond

After a bunch of not-so-successful relationships, Joey thought he’d found the one in Sabreena Diamond – a pink haired model from London.

The pair were constantly putting on loved-up PDAs hand in hand, even after rumour had it that Joey snogged Love Island’s Ellie Brown at Amber Davies’ birthday party.

However, the unlucky-in-love duo seemed to fizzle out and haven’t been pictured together since last year.
