Joey Essex is reportedly dating a woman named Reem.

Yes, that's right.

In what could be the best showbiz news of the year so far, it's claimed that former TOWIE star Joey has struck up a romance with Dubai-based cabin crew worker Reem Mesha.

According to The Sun, Joey met Reem while holidaying in Dubai and asked if he could see her passport to prove her name really is Reem.

Of course, TOWIE fans will know that "reem" is Joey's favourite word which he uses in place of cool. His autobiography is called Being Reem and his haircare range is named D'Reem.

What are the chances of getting a girlfriend called Reem as well?!

A source told the newspaper: "He wasn't looking for love when he flew out to Dubai but Reem really took his fancy – not just because of her name."

Joey was previously in a long-time romance with TOWIE co-star Sam Faiers, and was also linked to his The Jump co-star Ashley Roberts earlier this year.

So far, the Essex star hasn't commented on these new romance rumours, although he's in Dubai at the minute and making us well jel with all his holiday photos

Joey's on a holiday after winning the latest series of Channel 4 show The Jump over the likes of professional sportsman Mike Tindall. His latest episode of Educating Joey Essex - Supermodel Student - aired earlier this month as well.
