Love Islands Joe Garratt makes TOWIE debut as he goes on date with Frankie Sims

Love Island star Joe Garratt makes a debut on Sunday's episode of The Only Way Is Essex as he appears to go on a date with Frankie Sims.

Joe, 25, who previously dated Lucie Donlan, is single after splitting from model girlfriend Desiree Schlotz in April while Frankie, 26, called time on her romance with Jack Fincham over the summer.

In the teaser clip for Sunday's episode, it sees Joe and Frankie on what appears to be a date as he asks her questions her about her love life.

He says: "What are you looking for in a guy?"

To which she replies: "I don't know. I've literally kissed so many frogs!"

With Joe smirking as he takes a sip of his drink.

It is not known whether Joe will be made a permanent addition on the hit ITVBe show or whether he will just be making a cameo debut.

Joe is best known for appearing on the 2019 series of Love Island where he had a brief romance with co-star Lucie, who is now in a relationship with fellow Islander Luke Mabbott.

It was revealed in April that the reality star, who previously said he wants to be the next Mark Wright as a presenter, had called it quits with his model girlfriend Desiree following a six month romance.

A source told The Sun at the time : "Over lockdown Joe went to America to be with Desiree and was there a few months and then went Dubai together again for a couple of months.

"But Joe had to return back to UK for work and Desiree to America for work and just being a long distance relationship wasn't going to work.

"It's amicable and they're going to stay friends," the insider explained.

Meanwhile, Desiree, 23, took to her Instagram page to confirm her break-up from Joe, 24.

A fan asked: "Are you still dating Joe?," to which she responded: ""I've been getting this question a lot lately and I just want to clear things up.
