Joey Essex goes on a VERY awkward date on tonight's Celebs Go Dating on E4.

The former TOWIE star is one of the latest batch of celebs signed up to the E4 series and looking for love.


Other stars on this year's show are recent I'm A Celeb camper Ferne McCann, former Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter, American reality star Jonathan Cheban, Diversity's Perri Kiely, Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton and Ex On The Beach and Celebrity Big Brother's Stephen Bear.

So far Joey Essex has dated a cougar and a country girl, but will it be third time lucky for Mr JE when he goes on a date with 22-year-old Sarah, who likes sitting in shopping trollies? Joey takes her to the Sugar Hut to spice things up with his 'edgiest' date so far.

However the pair first encounter a sort-of language barrier when it's revealed Sarah is not originally from the UK.

Trying to pin down her accent, Joey suggests she's from Spain and then America before it's finally revealed his date is from Canada.

"Is Canada an actual country?!" reacts Joey.

He later gets offended when, after asking Sarah to rate his attractiveness, she gives him a 7.5 out of 10 because of his outfit.

"7.5?! Is she having a bubble?!" Joey tells cameras. "Is she having a laugh? These American birds don't know anything about fashion"

Elsewhere in tonight's show, Joey's former fellow TOWIE co star Ferne McCann breaks down in tears at the agency. After two terrible dates, she sobs that she'll never find love.


However the agents may be able to cheer her up after showing the reality star a picture of 25-year-old Tyrone from Manchester, leading to Ferne hopping straight on a train up North. Will Ferne find love for the first time ever, outside of the M25?

Celebs Go Dating airs tonight at 10PM on E4 an continues week nights.
