DANCING on Ice star Joey Essex has broken his silence after kissing Maura Higgins at the Pride Of Britain Awards.
The former TOWIE star and the brunette bombshell were spotted sharing a steamy smooch as they left the showbiz bash together last night.
The former I’m A Celebrity campmate took to social media to give an update after his seemingly late night in London.
Posting on Instagram for his 1.8 million followers, he shared a left mirror snap as he cut a casual figure.
The former reality star went far more low key sporting a black waterproof jacket with matching trousers as he held his phone with a bandaged finger.
Joey, 32, chose a bright pink beanie hat as he went straight back to training for the ITV skating competition.
He shared a second snap on his story as he gave his fans an update on the progress of his hand injury.
Showing his clearly bandaged fingers to the camera in a selfie, he captioned the pic: “healing good” with a mending heart emoji.
This is the first communication we’ve seen from Joey after he and Maura locked lips inside London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
Maura dazzled on a frilly Beauty and the Beast inspired yellow sleveless ballgown dress.
Meanwhile Joey beamed as he left the venue, looking dapper in a tailored black suit and bold red tie.
Before their departure in the same cab, the Only Way is Essex star held Maura closely, uncaring of those watching around him.
The hunk took a break from training to attend the Pride Of Britain Awards as he prepares to compete on Dancing On Ice.
The star had previously been hard at work on the ice alongside the likes of Love Island 2022 winner Ekin-Su.
However it hasn’t been smooth sailing for the reality TV star as he revealed he was ‘lucky to have his finger’ after an accident.
He explained on his Instagram story: “I’ve ended up with a metal finger, I’m lucky to still have the finger to be honest.
Adding: “You live and learn. If you are ever going to be a dancer on the ice, don’t take risks straight away. Go slow. It’s all about patience.”
