As Sam Faiers quits TOWIE, is Joey Essex already pushing her too far?

They’ve only been back together for a month but could trouble already be brewing for Sam Faiers and Joey Essex?

Apparently Joey called Sam last week in a panic after he was pictured looking a little too friendly with a girl in Dubai.

He told her to ignore the pictures,’ says a source close to Sam.

He sounded very panicked. He said it was innocent and she believed him, but she would never have put herself in that position. It was everyone gossiping that put pressure on them last time.’

It comes as we can confirm that Sam, 23, is quitting TOWIE after four years – and has already filmed her final scenes. Friends stress she’s not doing it for Joey, 23.

Instead Sam, who has Crohn’s Disease, is planning to concentrate on other work including an upcoming fragrance launch.
