Joey Essex is young free and single – but desperate to settle down with someone who can hold his attention.
And prior to dating the 21-year-old beauty, Joey has been romantically linked to a long, long list of women – including Sam Faiers, Amber Turner, Amy Willerton, Stephanie Pratt, Rita Ora, and Georgie Purves, among others.
But now the star says the fact that he is a loyal boyfriend ultimately leads to him dumping women quickly – so he can then date someone else.
Opening up about his dating history and hopes for the future with The Sun on Sunday, Joey explained that he has never cheated on any of his girlfriends.
He said: “I would feel too bad on the world and the universe.
“My whole body would feel like it’s a really bad thing that I’m doing if I was to cheat on a girl.
“I’ve never put myself in that position.”
He added: “People are surprised by that, but it’s why I dump girls so quickly. I don’t need to waste time and cheat on them. I guess I haven’t found a girl who challenges me.”
Joey also explained that, now that he is in his 30s, he hopes to settle down and start a family with the right woman.
The former TOWIE star is set to return to E4’s Celebs Go Dating later this month where he will try once again to find a new significant other – in front of cameras.
It will be the third time the star has featured on the reality romance show – having previously appeared on the first season of the show in 2016, and returning the following year for season two.
Celebs Go Dating returns to E4 on Monday January 25, 2021 at 9pm.
