Celebs Go Dating's Joey Essex has revealed he thinks KFC makes for the perfect date.

Joey is back on the E4 series looking for love after his relationship with co-star Stephanie Pratt on last year's show fizzled out.


So far his dates haven't exactly proved magical, but could that be because Joey has yet to make use of his secret weapon?

The former TOWIE star thinks nothing beats meeting a girl over a KFC bargain bucket.

Joey said: “KFC is perfect, it’s down the road. I love KFC, it’s cool. All my dates are pretty sick, I’m telling you.”

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Joey admitted: “I took a girl to KFC once and she wasn’t exactly happy.

“I think she wanted something a bit more posh. “I’m like, ‘I’ll take you to Nobu, no problem’.

"But she didn’t really accept that and she was really boring anyway so I left."


Joey added to the tabloid: "it’s low key. Being chilled is the best way.”

Meanwhile, Joey explained he was after a girl he could "trust" following his past relationships.

He said: “I just want a girl who’s honest and I can trust. I know when I first meet a girl whether I can trust them or not.

“I just want a nice, normal, trustworthy girl. That’s not too much, is it?


“I think I am the best boyfriend in the world. I treat girls nicely, I’m a good guy, I look after them.”

Celebs Go Dating continues tonight at 10PM on E4.
