'There's been a little mix-up': Amy Willerton denies she is dating Joey Essex

12 DECEMBER 2013 Amy Willerton has said that she is not dating fellow I'm A Celebrity... star Joey Essex.

Her denial comes days after Joey was quoted as saying they were an item.

Speaking at The Sun Military Awards, the 21-year-old beauty queen told the press that there has been "a little bit of a mix-up" with the confirmation.


"No, I don’t know where this has come from," Amy said.

"We went to McDonald's after the wrap party and apparently that was our first date, but my dad was with us and we went through drive-through."

The model added, "Me and Joey came out at the same time and have been on lockdown together for the last few days so we've been having an absolute ball.

"We're just friends, but we are very, very close."

Amy also spoke about her jungle experience, telling Digital Spy, "It's completely changed my life. I went into the jungle fairly unknown, now suddenly everybody wants to know what I'm up to.

"I just feel so lucky that I had the opportunity to go in there and show people who I am."
