Amy Willerton and Joey Essex's romance may have fizzled out but they were reunited again last night to support I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! at the National Television Awards.

The pair both took to the stage alongside their co-stars to accept the prize for 'Best Entertainment Programme'.

Viewers voted for I'm A Celebrity over other shows such as Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and The Graham Norton Show and we imagine Amy and Joey's chemistry in the jungle contributed to why fans were so enthralled by the latest series.

Amy wore a floor-length cream gown with crystal overlay – a very different look from the sizzling little pink dress she wore to a premiere earlier in the week.

Joey, meanwhile, showed off his unique sense of style again in a pea green three-piece suit and sunglasses.

Both stars have been busy since leaving the Australian jungle. Amy is just back from Los Angeles where she had a series of business meetings, while Joey has been in Africa filming a new ITV2 documentary that will see him getting up close to his favourite animals: monkeys and chimpanzees.

Many I'm A Celebrity viewers had hoped Amy and Joey would strike up a romance once they'd left the jungle, after watching their friendship develop on the show.

However, it wasn't to be, with Joey telling MailOnline recently: "We never had a relationship anyway, we were never a couple, we just really got along in the jungle."

Amy also spoke out about their relationship, telling The Sun on Sunday it wasn't going to go anywhere because she didn't want to become the next Katie Price and Peter Andre, another famous couple who met in the jungle and went on to become a showbiz power couple until their divorce.
