Joey Essex stocks up on the essentials (including Coco Pops) at his local petrol station… after admitting he is looking for ‘The One’

He recently confessed he is looking for love.

Yet Joey Essex took a break from his search to instead look for his breakfast cereal fix as he was seen stocking up on essentials at his local petrol station on Wednesday. 

The former TOWIE star, 29, was looking as handsome as ever as he emerged from Marks & Spencer while weighed down with his shopping and essentials.

Joey was looking typically handsome as he stepped out in a tight T-shirt and tracksuit bottoms paired with a man bag and baseball cap. 

Holding on to a heaving bag of shopping, he also clutched his breakfast treat. 

The handsome star has won a new legion of fans thanks to his appearance on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins and last month, he revealed he is now looking for the ‘one,’ setting his sights on someone who is also ‘in the industry.’ 

The reality star veteran told The Sun: ‘I normally date girls because I’m bored, but I want to settle down now and I do wonder how I’ll find the one.’

Joey previously dated Sam Faiers, who he proposed to after meeting on The Only Way Is Essex in 2011. He had a series of flings before finding Lorena Medina.

However, their romance came to a crashing halt earlier this year when the hunk was seen leaving Rita Ora’s pad with pals after a wild night out. Joey and Rita have since said they are ‘just friends’ and have been for years.

Now, Joey is keen to pursue another star as he admitted it is ‘awkward’ dating girls who aren’t famous. He shared: ‘I’m single at the moment and I need to date someone in the industry because they’ll know the situation that if we go out…

‘there might be people watching. I’ve dated girls before who are not in the limelight and it feels awkward.’

When asked if fellow reality TV star and supermodel Kendall Jenner is still his ‘dream girl’, he joked: ‘No, I’m her dream boy.’ 

Earlier this season, Joey brought viewers to tears when discussing his mother’s suicide. At the end of the third episode, the former TOWIE star was pulled aside to be grilled by officers Jason Fox and Matthew Ollerton.

Joey told the men that he was only able to say the word ‘mum’ in recent years, after losing his mum aged ten.

When they pressed him on why, he said: ‘I had to deal with a lot of s**t. My mum committed suicide when I was 10 which was difficult. It hardened me up a little bit. I can’t explain it. It’s made me tougher inside.’

Joey then emotionally revealed: ‘I only sort of started being able to talk about it openly, saying the word mum three or four years ago.’

He continued: ‘I know my mum loved me. But it has given me trust issues. One day she was there one day she was gone.’  

That was then: Joey has previously been linked to Sam Faiers, who he proposed to after meeting on The Only Way Is Essex in 2011 (pictured in 2013)
