Love Island's Grace swiftly dumps Joey Essex as he tries to juggle her and new bombshell Jessy

Joey Essex can’t have his cake and eat it, as Grace Jackson wasted no time in dumping him after she found out about his secret kiss on the terrace with new bombshell, Jessy Potts.

Before Jessy’s Love Island arrival, it looked like nothing could come between the former flames, who couldn’t keep their hands off each other ever since the model's entrance.

However, the couple were separated when bombshell Konnor chose to couple up with Grace, and things went a step further when Jessy ‘blew Joey away’ when she chose to take him on a date.

On Thursday night, Jessy chose to couple up with Joey, leaving Grace Jackson fuming. Instead of consoling her, Joey went up to the terrace with Jessy as they sneakily shared a kiss. Of course, nothing stays secret in the villa for long, as Grace said she’d never speak to the TOWIE star again if she finds out they locked lips.

She did in fact find out, and wasted no time in hearing Joey out as she shut things down straight away: “Good luck I wish you the best and it’s done,” she said.

Some viewers are calling it ‘karma’ on X, formerly known as Twitter. “Grace is clearly forgetting the kiss she had with joey and went into the hideaway with him when he was coupled up with samantha this is karma,” wrote one.

Another said: “Erm Grace didn’t you kiss up Joey while he was with Samantha??????”

Others, however, took to the platform to fight the model’s corner: “It’s Joey that disrespected them so why is Grace getting the heat here? At the end of the day, these people watch the show before they enter the villa so Grace could literally see the depth of their situation and so could Jessy. I think saying both are the same isn’t fair.”

“I'm seeing all this hate for Grace, where is the energy for Joey?” questioned another.

“It's never a good idea to get back with your Ex, look at how Joey been moving,” wrote one fan.

Joey and Grace first met while on holiday in Ibiza and their relationship continued on the outside. However, things then fizzled out between the pair, as Grace said things were left frosty.

In a previous episode, she told Uma it was like history repeating itself as he ‘replaced’ her with Jessy, claiming on the outside world he told her over a phone call that he didn’t have time for her anymore.
