As far as Love Island bombshells go, Joey Essex may well be the best of the best.

Sorry, Maura Higgins, we still love you but he is an actual TOWIE icon...

Not only that, but the Essex star has played the role of bombshell like a God damn pro. From coupling up with Samantha Kenny to jumping ship when Grace Jackson arrived only to have his head spun by newbie Jessy Potts, Joey's breaking hearts left, right and centre.

But it looks as though he may well have found The One in the form of Jessy as despite them being separated during Casa Amor week, they have both remained loyal.

And who better to know if Jessy and Joey truly are a match made in heaven than his cousin and House of Sims star, Demi Sims?

We recently caught up with the reality TV icon and she lifted the lid on why she thinks her cousin and the bombshell could very well make it to the final.

"I just think they really get along, conversation wise," Demi revealed. "I think they're on the same wavelength."

To be fair, Jessy didn't hesitate to stand up for Joey when one of the Casa Casanova's, Blade Siddiqi, shaded the TOWIE star claiming, "He's not the sharpest tool in the box, is he?"

It took her 0.2 seconds to fire back, "He's not that dumb, leave him alone."

Continuing her reason for their successful romance, Demi added, "She's his usual type, and I could just tell as soon as she walked in that he was gonna like her straight away."

"She's got that innocent, cute feel to her and I know he's gonna be all over that," Demi explained. "I'm so excited to watch them recouple tonight, for her to see him standing there alone because I don't know if she's expecting it or not."

We can't imagine she will expect Joey to have remained single; we certainly didn't and Demi understands why...

"Obviously his track record in the villa," she laughed. "I don't think she's expecting him to stand alone, but I just can't wait to see it. I think I'm gonna cry."
