Celebs Go Dating fans stunned as Joey Essex's date doesn't know who he is in awkward scenes

CELEBS Go Dating fans were gobsmacked tonight when Joey Essex's date admitted she didn't know who he was – in VERY awkward scenes.

The Towie star was paired with 21-year-old Nikki on the match-making show, but as soon as they sat down for their date she asked, "so what do you do?"

Shocked viewers flooded Twitter and one roared: "SHE DOESNT NO WHO JOEY ESSEX IS!!!!!!!!"

But things soon went from bad to worse as Joey, 30, was left absolutely speechless by her question.

The reality TV legend, who shot to fame a decade ago on Towie, was genuinely stumped and mumbled: "Errm, well.

"That's a good question. What do I do? Well I be Joey Essex. I just be me."

Laughing off the awkward silence, Nikki giggled and explained: "What TV have you been on? I don't really know what shows you've done."

Despite the hiccup Joey got a singing lesson from confident Nikki, before he invited her back to the mansion.

He later told his fellow celebs including Wayne Lineker and DJ Tom Zenetti: "She's a nice girl, she's very easy to get on with.

"I didn't want to have one of those super fans".

Viewers were in stitches over the scenes, and one remarked: "They did not match Joey Essex well?🤣"

However, others accused Nikki of playing it cool and claimed she did in fact recognise the popular star.

Another tweeted: "Of course she knows who Joey Essex is lol! About what telly do you do?🤣 Nice try luv, that’s your peoples"

Meanwhile, Geordie Shore babe Chloe Ferry celebrated when she saw her "biggest crush" Joey walking into the Celebs Go Dating mansion.

She did a little dance in the bedroom and told producers he had been her "longest crush".

Viewers hoped they'd get together, and one said: "Chloe Ferry and Joey Essex would actually make the perfect couple"
