Joey Essex has been slammed after telling his ex to ‘shut your mouth’ during an argument on Love Island.

The reality star, 33, is best known for starring on The Only Way is Essex, going on to appear on Celebrity Ex on the Beach, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and Dancing on Ice.

He is currently appearing on the latest season of Love Island, which is being filmed in Mallorca.

Although Joey first coupled up with make-up artist Samantha, the arrival of his ex-girlfriend Grace saw him quickly switch his attention, with the former flames quickly hooking up.

After causing plenty of drama, they’ve now fallen out again – badly.

On Sunday night’s episode, the Islanders gathered to settle in for the iconic movie night, which was rebranded as the Love Island Film Fest.

Several clips were then shown of Joey’s actions over the past few weeks, which left Grace and his current partner Jessy furious.

‘We both knew you were saying one thing to one of us and the same to the other,’ Grace told him from across the garden.

As Joey attempted to defend himself, Grace wasn’t backing down and said she had been ‘done with’ him before he dumped her for Jessy.

However, after she told him to ‘bore off’, things got incredibly tense.

The pair then started talking over each other before Jessie told him to shut up before he replied soon after: ‘Shut your mouth.’

Although she’d been sitting there quietly, shocked as the two went head-to-head, Jessy stepped in and made it clear she wasn’t happy with what he said.

‘You are very bitter towards me and have latched onto my girl,’ he claimed.

Grace then again told him to shut up, before he snapped back, ‘let me speak’.

Viewers watching the interaction weren’t impressed, with many calling out Joey and one saying he was acting ‘vile’.

‘The way Joey talks to Grace is a bit off putting,’ Dorothy posted on X.

‘Sorry but if you’re in a couple with me or ever had love for me, you still have to talk to me with respect. Even if we’re fighting. Joey telling Grace to shutup…’ Hannah commented.

‘I think the way Joey speaks to Grace is absolutely disgusting,’ Sandra added.

Many others said they wanted to see him dumped from the villa as soon as possible.

Meanwhile Emma posted: ‘Joey really showed his true colours the way he spoke to Grace. Think Jessy is having second thoughts.’

Joey and Grace dated last summer after meeting in Ibiza, with the latter telling the other girls things were ‘intense’ after they ended things on ‘frosty’ terms.

After rekindling their romance on the show, it was short-lived after Joey ditched Grace just a few hours after Jessy entered as a bombshell.

Love Island continues tonight on ITV2.
