They’re the most on again off again couple in reality TV history, but it seems that Sam Faiers and Joey Essex’s split is for good this time.
Apparently it was actually Sam who called things off, after becoming VERY, VERY frustrated by Joey’s inability to commit.
You do remember actually proposing to her, right, Joe?!
A friend of the former TOWIE star told Closer: “Sam and Joey had been rowing for months because they wanted completely different things in a relationship.
“Joey felt like Sam was continually trying to keep him on a leash and he wasn’t ready for a big commitment.”
Sparkly ring… down on one knee… ringing any bells, Joey?!
The insider added: “Sam thought having a Wedding to focus on would bring her and Joey closer together but he was horrified when she asked him about planning a big day in January.”
Well, that is only a few months away, in fairness.
Apparently Joey got cold feet in a BIG WAY and decided that he wasn’t ready to get hitched and start a family and made that pretty clear to poor old Sam.
The source said: “[Sam] wanted a big fairy-tale white wedding but Joey thought they weren’t ready. He told Sam he definitely couldn’t see himself marrying her any time soon so they agreed to call it a day for good.
“Sam is heartbroken and spending lots of time with her girlfriends to take her mind off Joey. Billie has told her she’ll support her and will help with matchmaking when she wants to start dating again,”
Despite their recent tiff a few months ago, Sam assured us that the couple were still very much in love when we caught up with her recently.
She told us: “Regardless of our argument in Spain and what’s gone on, with us two we love each other and it’s onwards and upwards.
“We are very much still in love and we plan our future together, we just have a bit of a rocky road sometimes, just like a lot of young people for us.”
We’re still holding out hope…
