She told The Sun on Sunday: “He was the love of my life. I was ready to have children with Joey. We talked about marriage almost every day.”

But, their romance came to an end after Joey was spotted leaving Rita's home in March.

She explained: “I knew Joey had spent the night out because I had talked to him when he was in the cab on the way back to Essex.

“He told me, ‘I had a crazy night and I stayed at my friend’s and that was fine. But he didn’t tell me it was a girl and he didn’t mention Rita Ora. I told Joey: ‘This s*** can’t happen. Are you crazy?

‘How would you feel if I spent the night with some guy?’ I was very upset and was like: ‘F*** this. I don’t trust you. I don’t trust what you are saying’.”

Speaking about the heated split, Lorena added: “We were crying, screaming and hanging up the phone so much I got eczema all over my body.

“I didn’t want to speak to Rita and I don’t hate her. I respect her, she is super-talented. But after that Joey and I decided it was best if we didn’t talk any more.

“We said goodbye and agreed we were hurting each other too much and that it was time to end it and I haven’t spoken to him since.”

After Joey was seen making his way into the I Will Never Let You Down singer’s west London home following a night of partying with friends, Joey denied there was anything romantic between the pair.

Joey said: “We have known each other for years.

“She's a nice girl, but we're just friends. She's a sort,” he continued to spill at the TRIC Awards in March.

Meanwhile, Rita said she was “obsessed” with Joey, but denied anything romantic was going on.

Speaking on Heart’s Breakfast show with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden, Rita, who is reportedly spending lockdown in a rural property, said: “It’s insane, why can’t people be friends? Honestly, it’s annoying.”

She added how her passion for reality TV sparked her friendship with Joey, who is on the latest series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.

Rita said: “I would’ve gone nuts too, don’t even get me started. I was obsessed with Joey and how he acts and talks and everything, that I was kind of like: 'I need to hang out with this guy' and literally that was it, that was the bottom line and I’m a friendly person.”
