Joey Essex and Stephanie Pratt are said to have split up.

It comes a month after the reality pair met during E4 show Celebs Go Dating.

The series had followed six stars as they look for love with help from Dating agency owner Eden Blackman and matchmaker Nadia Essex.

We've saw the nightly dates of the all star cast as they were partnered up with - gasp - NORMAL FOLK.

Although in a change to the original plan, Joey and Stephanie ended up falling for one another.

"I'm so happy that I met Joey," Steph said in last month's final episode. "Could he be the one? Potentially."

"I might have just met the future Mrs Essex," Joey added.

Well, it hasn't quite worked out.

The pair are understood to have parted ways after three months together.

According to The Sun newspaper, Joey split from Stephanie over having to spend most of his time in Chelsea rather than Essex.

A source told the tabloid: “He genuinely fell for her and even though they were an unlikely couple, he hoped it could turn into something more serious.

“But he realised it was never going to work with him spending so much time away from home.”

The news is sure to make Charlotte Crosby shout 'I TOLD YOU SO', having claimed the relationship would never last on the show.
