The couple, who got together on the Essex-based reality show, started dating at the start of this year.
She revealed more details in her column for Star magazine, saying:
"I was mothering Joey - I just need space from him.
"Hes gorgeous but we spent so much time together so quickly that the spark went out just as fast."
