Last week she admitted that she was ‘happy’ for them and wasn’t ‘bitter.’
But it seems that Sam Faiers has changed her mind about ex-boyfriend Joey Essex and his new ‘relationship’ with jungle hottie Amy Willerton.
The TOWIE star has admitted that she thinks that the couple are having a ‘fauxmance’ trying to get as much milage as possible out of the ‘hype’ following I’m a Celeb.

When asked by OK! Magazine if she thought the romance was a publicity stunt, she repsonded: ”I don’t think that’s far from the truth.
“If they had such a strong connection, why didn’t something happen in the jungle? When you really connect with someone, you can’t fight it.”
She added: ”I think they’re both trying to keep the hype from the jungle going.”
Harsh (but fair? ) words.
But while model Amy has been insisiting that she’s currently just ‘friends’ with Joey – she’s just admitted that the pair DID share a cheeky kiss at the wrap party.
She told the magazine: ”The papers called it our first date but we haven’t been on a date yet. Still, we might have had a cheeky kiss that night, which took us both by surprise…”
When the model was asked who made the first move, she responded: ”Joey [giggles]. It was really nice, I felt butterflies and it was exciting because it was unexpected. That’s all I’m saying about it!”
Sam was reportedly set to make an appearance on the ITV show in a bid to win Joey back, but she recently admitted that she didn’t want to go after seeing Joey with Amy.
She said: ”I’m not bitter, I’m happy for him, and I was never planning on going.
“I would have loved to do the show, but this was Joey’s time and never in a million years would I have gone because it’s his moment and I wouldn’t embarrass myself.”
