It's for real, guys
Despite being together for a couple of months since filming on the E4 show wrapped – and trying their best to keep it a secret in between – some people have accused the relationship of being a ‘showmance’.
But the former TOWIE star has rubbished the claims, telling OK!: ‘For me, there’s no point even answering the question. I know it’s genuine she knows it’s genuine. I trust her, she trusts me. It works and it’s perfect.
‘I don’t care what anyone says or thinks. I think me and Steph will be the only couple on the show to last.’READ THE LATEST CELEBRITY NEWS
Now that’s some fighting talk! And if it’s a showmance, they’ve put in quite a lot of effort with each other to make it work, as the star adds: ‘We’re like best mates, we hang around with each other all day.
‘When we first met, we proper got on and we haven’t had one argument.’
Aww, they are so sweet! And now that they can finally be open about their relationship, they’ve been gushing over each other on Instagram. Joey Essex is off to the USA to film another of his Educating Joey Essex (this time about the American election) and both posted a sweet picture to show how much they’ll miss each other.
Joey wrote: ‘I’m gonna miss this one!!!’
And Stephanie said: ‘Have fun in Americaaa!! Pls bring back some lucky charms cereal home @joeyessex!!!’
Good luck with their relationship guys!
