Stephanie Pratt has told fans she is "literally so happy" after going public with her romance with former TOWIE star Joey Essex.

After growing closer on E4 show Celebs Go Dating, Stephanie and Joey have had fans hooked when it comes to their relationship. Following the flirting and secret texting was a steamy first date, and the pair defended their romance when dating agency bosses Nadia and Eden told Steph and Joey they didn't think they were right for each other.

Proving everyone wrong, Steph recently took to Twitter to gush about her new beau Joey and shared smitten selfies of the pair together.

Her first photo was of herself and Joey cuddled up in the back of a car together. Stephanie tweeted alongside her snap: "I have the best date @JoeyEssex_."

She then tweeted her followers to say: "Wanted to say how much I appreciate the nice tweets you are sending - I am literally just so happy."

Cute, right?

Despite seeming inseparable lately, the couple will have to go without seeing each other for a little while, as Joey is off to America to film for the next series of his Educating Joey Essex show. He jetted off to New York on Saturday (17 September), prompting Steph to share another photo of the pair and wish him well on his travels.

She shared a sweet picture of herself and Joey with the arms wrapped around each other, and told him: "Have fun in Americaaaa!! Pls bring some lucky charms cereal home @joeyessex!!!"

Stephanie's latest posts on social media come after we recently caught up with Nadia Essex and she told us that she is hoping Steph and Joey "prove her wrong" when it comes to their blossoming romance.

She had expressed her reservations when it comes to the couple, previously insisting that Joey and Stephanie aren't well suited.

However, speaking exclusively to Reveal, Nadia told us: "From a matchmaker point of view, they aren't compatible and you wouldn't put those two together in a million years. I hope they prove me wrong and get married and have Essex and Pratt babies and a fabulous Essex and Chelsea wedding but we'll have to see."

"If they get married I take full credit and if they break up I told you so," she joked.
