Joey Essex is now dating a Sam Faiers lookalike

The Only Way Is Essex star Joey Essex seems to be enjoying romance again, since his split from Sam Faiers.

The on-off couple ended their relationship again in October 2014, and it looks like both have moved on.

Joey has been spotted getting cosy in Dubai with a gorgeous woman, Bethany Hitch, who looks, er, well creepily like Sam. 

He said: "I didn't want to get into a relationship because I have been loving the single life – it's amazing. But I think we could end up together. It's definitely heading that way."

He has also expressed his worry about the relationship: "I'm just worried my fame will freak her out. If our relationship gets serious, it's going to change her life. She'll end up doing interviews with magazines and photoshoots. I need her to be able to handle the pressure.

"Dating me is a life-changing experience," he claimed.

Meanwhile, Sam has been spotted with her boyfriend, Paul Day, and the pair look smitten. They have been an item since November 2014.

Despite the fact that they got engaged last year, it looks like Joey and Sam aren't on great terms since their split.

Sam blasted Joey in her autobiography Secrets and Lies, calling him delusional and stating that: "He plays on the ‘Little Boy Lost’ act and has always had a real skill for twisting things round to suit him because he has never really been made to grow up and take responsibility for himself."


We guess that's definitely the end of those two.
