Amy Willerton Denies Joey Essex Romance
Beauty queen publicly puts Towie star in 'the friend zone'...
The duo, who titillated viewers of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! with their constant flirting, were claimed by The Only Way Is Essex star Joey to be dating.
But Amy has now diplomatically suggested that there may have been "a little bit of a mix-up".
Speaking to the media at The Sun Military Awards, she said: "No, I don't know where this has come from.
"We went to McDonald's after the wrap party and apparently that was our first date, but my dad was with us and we went through drive-through.
"Me and Joey came out at the same time and we've been on lockdown together for the last few days so we've been having an absolute ball.
"We are just friends, but we are very, very close."
The beauty queen also revealed that her appearance on the show had given her career a boost.
"It's completely changed my life. I went into the jungle fairly unknown, now suddenly everybody wants to know what I'm up to.
"I just feel so lucky that I had the opportunity to go in there and show people who I am."
