The show sees our favourite famous faces plunged into a pool of total awkwardness as their exes wash up on the shores of Spain.

Episode 1 of Ex on the Beach aired on January 21st 2020. And the series sees everyone from TOWIE’s Georgia Harrison to Love Island’s Micheal Griffiths facing their ex-partners.

Joey and Lorena meet on Ex on the Beach

January 21st 2020 saw Joey Essex and Lorena Medina meet on screen.

What about their exes?

Of course, Joey and Lorena were taking part in a show where their exes could rock up at any given moment. But, throw anything their way and these love birds seem to be able to combat anything.

Throughout January and February, the beautiful couple made a couple of public appearances together including the National Television Awards 2020 and The Sun Military Awards 2020, signalling they were incredibly loved up. And by the looks of both of their Instagram pages, they were still head over heels. Joey even shared an Insta post on January 21st captioned: “Love at first sight.”

But it is clear the couple are no longer an item, thanks to lack of Instagram presence and the fact Joey was spotted heading home with Rita Ora at 4am on March 6th, 2020.

They haven’t deleted their pictures with one another on Instagram, so there’s always hope that the love is still there!
