Joey makes Sam a very happy woman at charity auction

Joey Essex and ex-fiancé Sam Faiers shocked TOWIE viewers last night by reuniting at a charity auction.

The former couple walked off hand-in-hand after Joey, 23, bid £2,000 to take Sam, 22, on a date.

Joey had been a no-show at the event as Mark Wright‘s cousin Elliott and Sam‘s first love Lewis made offers for a night with the pretty blonde – but made a surprise appearance at the last minute.

Sam looked pretty happy to see Joey while Elliott, 32, and Lewis seemed rather put out.

Earlier in the show, Sam had confessed to older sister Billie that she was missing Joey – who she split with in June after a two-month engagement.

‘Since Joey came round the other day, we didn’t speak for a bit. I really do want to make another go of things,’ she said.

Billie, 23, replied: ‘I feel like it’s all on his terms at the moment.

‘You’re my sister and I want to see you happy, but I feel like he should be shouting his love from the rooftops if he wants to win you back.’

But it was clear that Joey knew Sam was worth fighting for when he told pal Tom Pearce: ‘I’m Peter Pan and Sam‘s my Wendy… and Elliott‘s Captain Hook.’
