Joey Essex Confirms He's Been Seeing Sam Faiers Again
Former The Only Way Is Essex star insists he was never dating Amy Willerton...
The bouffant-haired himbo told The Sun On Sunday that he and glamour model Sam had reunited after her illness brought them back together.
He said: "Obviously me and Sam do have feelings for each other. I have been seeing her again."
And he admitted that he was spurred to get in touch when he heard she had been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease.
"That's when I went to see her for the first time, now we have met up a few times and that...
"I haven't had a serious girlfriend other than her. We'll always be close. She's a very strong girl, Sam."
But when asked about I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! crush Amy Willerton, he appeared to dismiss any idea that they had been an item.
"There was never a relationship between me and her. Ever.
"Maybe she thought it was a relationship but it weren't. It was just a laugh. There was never a romance."
And the 23-year-old TV personality appeared uncharacteristically bitter when responding to her claims that his 'people' had wanted them to become a celeb couple.
"I don't know if I believe that because she sets up quite a lot of pap shots herself, doesn't she? That's my life innit, I always get followed by cameras."
