Joey Essex has reportedly coupled up with a stunning Miami model after they met on Ex on the Beach.
The former TOWIE star is said to have entered into a relationship with gorgeous Lorena Medina after they fell for each other while filming the MTV show, according to The Sun .
Joey, 29, and 27-year-old Lorena, who is also an actress and singer, recently returned to the UK, where he showed her around his native Essex, including a visit to celeb hot spot Sheesh restaurant in Chigwell.
The new couple were hanging out with castmates Sophie Kasaei, from Geordie Shore, and TOWIE’s Georgia Harrison when they were caught looking loved up on camera by TOWIE star Yazmin Oukhellou.
In a video posted to her Instagram story, the pair appeared to kiss after Joey whispered sweet nothings into her ear.
Lorena, who hails from Miami, has featured in a number of magazines and adverts in her modelling career.
She’s not the first of Joey’s co-stars he’s dated.
While appearing on Celebs Go Dating, Joey embarked on a romance with The Hills and Made In Chelsea star Stephanie Pratt.
They went against the rules of the agency by pairing up, rather than dating ‘normal’ members of the public as the show’s premise dictates.
Joey later dumped Stephanie after three months together.
It was claimed at the time that Joey ended the relationship because Stephanie was making him spend too much time in Chelsea.
This new series of Ex on the Beach is set to be the most explosive yet.
Also signed up are recurring reality star Calum Best, Love Island’s Michael Griffiths, Ellie Brown and Charlie Brake, and gold medal winner Ashley McKenzie.
Mirror Online has contacted Joey’s representatives for comment.
