Yep. After three weeks of dating non-celebrities, the pair decided that it was actually each other that they fancied.

But it hasn’t been an easy ride so far. They had to keep their romance under wraps while the show was still on air, which they’ve admitted was pretty difficult.

Joey tells OK!: It’s been a lot of pressure for us. We haven’t been able to walk down the street. We’ve been wearing massive hoodies!’

Made In Chelsea lady Steph, 30, adds: ‘It’s a relief that we can finally tell everyone and just go out and do things together.

‘I’m so happy I don’t have to look for the perfect guy any more. He fell right into my hands. I think he’s the hottest guy in the world.’

How adorable?! But what about those showmance rumours?

Ever since they went public, Joey and Steph have been hit by accusations that their feelings aren’t entirely genuine.

But ex-TOWIE star Joey, 26, won’t stand for that.

He says: ‘I know it’s genuine, she knows it’s genuine. I trust her, she trusts me. It works and it’s perfect. I don’t care what anyone says or thinks.

‘I think me and Steph will be the only couple on the show to last.’

Ca-uuute. Wouldn’t they make gorgeous babies?!
