Celebs Go Dating's Joey Essex and Tom Read Wilson could be set for their own spin-off show.

Former TOWIE star Joey appeared on the E4 series this year and there was a blossoming bromance with the show's receptionist Tom.

Now TV bosses are reportedly considering a spin-off show for the pair of them.

A source told the Daily Star on Sunday: "Joey and Tom’s random relationship was hugely popular with viewers.

“They are extremely funny, have great chemistry together and fans have fallen in love with the odd couple. Ideas are being floated about some sort of spin-off."

Speaking earlier this month, Tom revealed he and Joey had got "terribly close" during filming of this year's Celebs Go Dating.

"It's so enjoyable," raved the singer and actor, "I feel so involved with some of the celebrities, especially Joey.

"We've got terribly close. We have become a little family, so it will be really hard when it's so over and we have to say farewell."

But Tom was less impressed with Stephen Bear, who was axed from the show, describing him as a "misfit".

Tom commented: "Sometimes I enjoyed his mischievousness, but at other times it was a bit exhausting."

As for his own dating life, Tom revealed he had been asking the advice for Celebs Go Dating experts Eden and Nadia.

He confessed: "I frequently ask their advice because I'm absolutely frightful. I do all the things you're not supposed to do. "

Celebs Go Dating is set to return to E4 later this year for a new series.
