Stephanie Pratt and Joey Essex have hit back at haters over their romance.

In a new joint interview the pair said they were "genuine" after falling for one another on E4's Celebs Go Dating.

The show was originally intended to couple up celebrities with 'normal' people but instead Stephanie and Joey ended up falling for one another.

Chatting to OK! magazine this week, Joey said: "I know it's genuine, she knows it's genuine."

He added: "I trust her, she trusts me. It works and it's perfect. I don't care what anyone says or thinks."

Meanwhile, Stephanie gushed: "I'm so happy I don't have to look for the perfect guy any more.

"He fell right into my hands... I think he's the hottest guy in the world."

However they've yet to convince everyone that it'll last.

Their fellow Celebs Go Dating star Charlotte Crosby has suggested it just won't work, having previously claimed that Stephanie wasn't as into Joey as he was into her.

“They’re really into each other and I think they’re both attractive people, but I don’t think they’re suited for each other. I know how much he likes her, so if there is a wedding I’m hoping I’d be invited,” Charlotte said.
