Joey Essex And Sam Faiers Brush Off Split Reports
Former Towie couple insist they're still together after holiday rows...
You could be forgiven for thinking that Joey Essex and Sam Faiers plan their frequent break-ups and make-ups when they decide their public profile is on the wane.
But the former The Only Way Is Essex cast members have insisted that their recently reported split while on holibobs in Marbella was a tabloid storm in a teacup.
Speaking at a promotional event together yesterday, Essex told Digital Spy: "We're happy. We're happy, yeah.
"Just like any couple, we argue - probably like yourself, like every person in the whole world. We all argue, except ours is in the public eye. That's what happens.
"If we're seen or out of the blue sometimes the magazines and papers decide to write what they want to write, and people want to believe what they see. That's how it is in this world."
And the 24-year-old insisted that he didn't let media reports about his private life bother him.
He continued: ""All I care about is what I know and what my family knows - me, my dad and my sister. No-one else. I can't defend myself in every single paper and every single magazine - I'm not there to do it.
"That's what they want to write. People can believe what they want to believe."
