Willerton: I’ll still be friends with Joey

Amy Willerton intends to remain friends with Joey Essex following their split.

The pair hit it off while taking part in the latest series of 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!'.

But the former Miss World contestant has confirmed things have cooled down between them following the festive period.

The 21-year-old beauty said: "I'm not seeing Joey. He's in Africa. He's filming his new show.

"But we'll definitely meet up when he returns from Africa - as friends."

But it doesn't sound like the blonde model will be short of male attention for long as she admitted she has been inundated with emails from admirers.

"You get a lot of messages, a lot of greetings, a lot of weird emails,” she said.

"It’s kind of weird for me because I've been single for six months … I'm still single … so it's kind of like, I don't know, I'm waiting for the right guy."

Other stars at the launch included 'I'm A Celebrity' runner-up David Emmanuel and when asked whether he thought Joey and Amy's relationship was a 'showmance', he replied: "Well you said it … of course".
