Sam Faiers: Why I Took Joey Essex Back
Former The Only Way Is Essex star opens up about her love life...
Talking to Digital Spy, the scripted reality TV cast member said that two splits and a broken engagement were not enough to put her off the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! contestant.
"We said from the day we met, which was over three years ago now, we'd always loved each other and never fully moved on," she explained.
"As much as I might have seen other people, and he might have, it was always this weird connection and this unfinished business."
And she said she was more confident about their relationship now it wasn't in the glare of the Towie TV lights.
"The dynamic of the relationship is completely different now without being on the show and the pressures.
"We're just taking things slow - no whirlwind, no rushing. Our next move will be to move in together either this year or next year. We're going to try and keep our relationship as normal as possible."
