The two were seen growing closer as they caught up in the Red Bar at London’s Grosvenor House, where the ceremony was taking place.

An excited Maura could be seen smiling with her eyes closed as she tilted her head close to Joey’s, while Joey was also seen moving closer to the beauty.

The pair were also seen sharing an intimate hug, with the Irish stunner resting her head on Joey’s shoulder.

Maura and Joey seemed very relaxed in each other’s company as they chatted together in the lobby.

And it appeared the two couldn’t stay away from each other as they shared a taxi before setting off with other friends.
