It's been a bad couple of weeks for The Only Way Is Essex lot, not only did Amy Childs break up with the man she thought was "the one", but matching nose jobs couldn't even save Lauren Pope and Kirk Norcross's relationships and now Sam Faiers and Joey Essex have decided to go their separate ways.
However, it appears as though the decision to end their relationship wasn't exactly mutual after Joey explained to Now magazine that Sam's decision to walk out on their relationship was "out of the blue."
The reality star revealed: "It just feels a bit random as it wasn’t like we were going through a bad patch. It was just like, bang, out of the blue.”
And to add insult to injury, Sam ended their relationship over the phone!
Joey added: “She did it randomly when she was in Manchester. I’d slept round her house the night before and everything was normal. She gave me a kiss on the lips, said she loved me and we had a cuddle before she left that morning.
“Yeah, I was round my mates playing Ping-Pong and got a message on my BlackBerry saying: 'We need to talk, it’s about us'. I rang her and she said she thought we needed to go on a break and asked me whether I felt the same. I told her to make her mind up but she was saying she didn't know what to do. I got a bit upset, as any boy would. It was a really weird phone call and I was pretty baffed out.”
However, it appears as though the split might not be permanent as Joey admitted that Sam still loves him.
He said: “I’ve never fallen in love with a girl so quickly before. I know she feels the same way. She texted me the other day to say she still loves me. We still speak at least five times during the week.”
Oh the drama.
