Love Island's Alex Bowen made a VERY welcome return to TV yesterday, giving Joey Essex a little pep talk ahead of his latest date.

Model Alex, 25, popped up on Monday night's (5 September) episode of Celebs Go Dating, meeting Joey for a drink before his second date with Becky.

Alex was on hand to give Joey some valuable kissing advice before he met Becky. Basically, Joey was debating whether to go straight in and kiss Becky on the lips when he met her.

"She's an actual proper sort and it's the third time seeing her," said Joey, 26, who had a date with Becky in a previous episode, before meeting her at the agency mixer, where they arranged their second date.

He ended the mixer by kissing Becky on the lips.

"This is it. I'm thinking to myself, 'I have to go straight in there this time and put it on her straight away, get it on her," said Joey.

Alex, who found love with Olivia Buckland on Love Island, agreed: "If you've already kissed a girl it shouldn't be a problem. She's probably with her friends now thinking, 'I hope he kisses me as soon as he gets here.'"

Alex added: "Go straight in for the kiss, you'll be kissing all date"

Joey then admitted to the cameras he better get a snog from Becky or Alex would have a field day! "I better get a snog or he'll rinse me!"

Joey got a peck from Becky.



Luckily for Joey he did get a kiss when he met Becky. A peck.

But the date didn't actually go that well at first… it was a bit awkward, especially when Joey's phone rang and he got up to answer it leaving Becky alone at the table. (It was co-star Charlotte Crosby on the phone who wanted to quiz Joey on the date and whether he'd kissed Becky. Oh, she also wanted him to spin his phone camera round so she could see Becky. Awks!)

It did get better, however, after Joey ordered double tequilas and Becky suggested they halve the bill. Joey said that wasn't happening: "Not for the first 150 dates."

Joey finally told Becky he didn't know how she felt about him and she admitted she was hard to read. Joey told her he'd not kissed anyone else on the show but her... and then went in for another kiss. Smooth

"He's charming, and that wins me over," said Becky.
