Sad times for the reality stars

However, it seems as if the odds have won out, as Joey Essex and Stephanie Pratt‘s unlikely romance is no more.

After meeting on fun reality show Celebs Go Dating, in which famous folks tried to find love with everyday members of the public, TOWIE boy Joey and Made In Chelsea alumnus Steph ended up falling for each other (making one of the best-toothed couples in TV history, in our opinion) – much to the disappointment and sceptical view of the love coaches.

But after all of this, their love was sadly not meant to be, as it’s been reported that Joey, 26, ended things due to her desire to socialise in her West London haunt, Chelsea.

‘Joey wasn’t up for spending every minute in Chelsea with Stephanie,’ a source told The Sun. ‘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.’

Though they’ve previously been very open with their feelings about each other to the public, there were potential signs of trouble in paradise earlier this week, when 30-year-old Stephanie refused to answer any questions about her beau.

‘I can’t answer any questions about Joey – sorry,’ she said during a promotional trip in LA for her fitness range.
