It's the worst kept secret in TV dating show history, but finally, this week, we'll see Joey Essex take Stephanie Pratt on a very romantic date after meeting on Celebs Go Dating.

And as our exclusive picture shows, the pair have a big old steamy kiss, semi-naked in a swimming pool.



We first started getting a bit suspicious back in July when they left the E4 Summer Schedule party together.

They were then ALL OVER each other on the This Morning sofa last week after we found out that Joey has been staying over at Stephanie's house in Chelsea, that he's bought her a puppy (named Charlie) AND that they're planning to have Christmas together in LA so he can meet her fam.

We are SUPER KEEN for these two to get it on – after all, there's nothing more that we love in the WORLD than a cross-reality TV romance.

However, after speaking to the pair in this week's heat magazine, our biggest worry about the blossoming romance is communication.

No, not that they need to speak about their feelings more.

That they actually cannot understand each other.

Joey told us that he wouldn't compromise on his accent, saying: "She's American. I [can't] understand a word she's saying. This is an international thing.

"It's like speaking to someone from Spain. Most of the words she says, I'm like 'what?'"

Steph commented: "I'm not even going to understand him. I'm going to need a dictionary!"

However, Mr Essex went on to melt our hearts, telling us: "I just think there might be a connection with Steph."
