Celebs Go Dating matchmaker Nadia Essex has revealed that she doesn't think Joey Essex and Stephanie Pratt are very well suited.

It's the reality romance that has had everyone talking lately, but Nadia isn't convinced Joey and Stephanie are a good match for each other. She claims: "These two, from a matchmaker's point of view, are not suited."

Oh, but we love the unusual coupling don't you?

Not ruling them out completely, Nadia did add that there can be "exceptions to the rule", but she wouldn't have put Joey and Stephanie together.

She thinks that 26-year-old Joey needs someone who is a little younger than 30-year-old Stephanie, while Steph needs somebody older and "more mature" who is ready to settle down and talk marriage and babies.

"At the end of the day you can't help how you feel and you can't help who you're attracted to," Nadia told Daily Star. "If they are meant to be together then only time will tell."

For now, though, it seems like Steph and Joey are pretty smitten.

Fans recently got to see the pair head out on a champagne date together, before enjoying a steamy kiss in a swimming pool. Stephanie had told Joey that she thought Nadia would be angry with the pair for ditching their normal dates for each other, but Joey replied: "Do we care, though?"

Cue a LOT of snogging...

Following their date airing onscreen, Stephanie joked that she and Joey hadn't quite grasped the concept of the show. Celebs Go Dating had been matchmaking celebrities with normal people (i.e us) in the hope that they can find romance.

Steph and Joey, however, have seemed more interested in each other and taking to Twitter, Stephanie said: "Guess we didn't understand the concept of the show #oops."

She recently appeared to confirm her romance with former TOWIE star Joey, by sharing a photo of a bouquet of flowers she had been sent to Instagram. She captioned the post with a love heart emoji and eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice the card included in the flowers had read: "To Steph, love Joey."
