It's safe to say that Stephanie Pratt BLOODY LOVES A REALITY SHOW. Seriously, she is the absolute queen of them.

First came The Hills, then Made in Chelsea, then Celebrity Big Brother – and now it's looking like she could be dabbling in TOWIE.


Joey Essex

Yup, we are deadly serious. And we're so excited because we find cross-reality romances SO EXCITING (is that weird?).

Anyway, the two have apparently been secretly seeing each other since they met while filming new E4 show Celebs Go Dating, a programme where famous peeps date regular non-famous members of the public. So they COMPLETELY missed the point of the show, basically. Charlotte Crosby is also set to appear just FYI…

Joey and Stephanie both attended the E4 Summer Schedule party in London on Wednesday and, according to The Sun, left together at the end of the night.

A source told the paper: "They started chatting as a result of the show and have got quite flirty.

"They've been in constant contact by text ever since and were not hiding anything at the party on Wednesday night.

"At one point they crept away to the back of the bar's terrace together and were being very tactful. He was telling everyone how much he fancies her and was following her around like a puppy."

Joey seems to be a bit of a pro at going after blondes at bashes. Remember that time he apparently snogged Perry Edwards at that party?

Stephanie is partial to dating someone from a reality show and subsequently joining said show as a cast member (Spencer Matthews and Made in Chelsea, obv), so we are REALLY HOPING SHE'S GOING TO JOIN TOWIE, that would be so weird / great. There's the minor obstacle that Joey left the show a couple of years ago, but we can dream.

Fingers crossed, eh?
