It seemed like the shortest romance of all time.
But now Joey Essex has denied EVER being in a relationship with Amy Willerton, despite her claims to the contrary.
Joey, 23, has told the MailOnline that he and Amy, 22, were just close friends.
He explained: “We’re still friends. We never had a relationship anyway, we were never a couple, we just really got along in the jungle.”
Just in case we didn’t get it the first time, Joey went on to say: “We’re still close but she lives three hours away from me and I’ve got so much work on, so we haven’t really got time to see each other, so we’re both just taking it easy. We’re not in a relationship and we never were.”
However, Joey’s comments are slightly at odds with what he said just a few weeks ago.

He told The Sun: “Our first date was amazing.”
When asked if the two were an item Joey replied ‘yes’ before adding: “I’m very happy. Look at her. She’s beautiful.”
Amy also claimed the pair were an official couple, saying they had ‘really strong feelings’ for each other – and that producers wanted them to have their own TV show.
She told The Sun: “Joey changed when we left the jungle. He was more of a man than a boy and I was like, ‘Wow’. People did say to me, ‘Gosh, I thought you’d end up with someone more grown up,’ but Joey had grown up a bit in there and I always thought he was gorgeous.”
She continued: “We spent the rest of the time in Australia engulfed in each other. We kissed for the first time in his bedroom after the show wrap party and we spent the night together.”
Amy went on to say: “I’d been single for a while, so it was lovely to have these feelings and go with our impulses. Whatever people say, it was 100 per cent natural.”
However, after it was revealed that the pair had split, Amy said she’d felt pressured to be the new Katie Price and Peter Andre.
She said: “I want a real, normal relationship where everything happens naturally and you are just allowed to be. I didn’t want to be the next Katie Price and Peter Andre. And I gradually realised that could never happen for us.”
