The Essex girls strip off to get bronzed

Sam Faiers thrilled her Twitter fans yesterday by posting a saucy picture of herself and pals wearing nothing but black thongs.

The group – which included Sam‘s older sister Billie and co-star Ferne McCann – were enjoying a spray tan party and stripped off to make sure they were bronzed evenly.

They stood with their backs to the camera, meaning their toned bottoms were on full display.

‘From left2right.. Stacey, ferne, Sarah, me & billie @fakebakeunited @TheTanExpert all tanned up for the weekend,’ Tweeted Sam, 22.

‘Loved our little spray tan party tonight thank u @SandraMcClumpha & @fakebakeunited #CBB time…’

It looks like Sam may have got her friends together last night to take her mind off ex-fiancé Joey Essex, who was launching his new perfume range in London.

Joey, 23, told his Twitter followers that he’d had a great time debuting his fragrances Fusey and My Girl.

‘Many thanks to Mark and all the lovely staff at @sanctumhotels for looking after me today and hosting my fragrance launchXx,’ Tweeted Joey after the event.
