TOWIE star Sam Faiers is ‘totally devastated’ after the break-up with Joey Essex

It’s
always tough getting dumped, but it’s even worse for Sam Faiers who had to read
about it in the newspaper rather than being told by ex Joey Essex! Ouch.

The TOWIE couple had been on a family holiday to Marbella celebrating Sam’s sister
Billie’s engagement to Greg Shepherd when their non-stop arguing got too much.

A pal
of the couple tells Now, ‘They’re a fiery pair and always argue a lot, but are quick
to make up afterwards. Joey is thought of as a member of the family, but he was
acting childish for the whole trip and ruining the holiday for everyone. They
had a row, and Joey flew back home on his own as planned while Sam stayed out
for an extra couple of days.’

But it wasn’t to cool off and sort things out as poor Sam must havethought. 

‘The
next thing Sam knew, it was in the papers that they’d split. She was totally
clueless, and is feeling pretty fragile.’

That is pretty harsh! 

When
the news broke last week, Joey’s agent confirmed the couple had split. Both
Joey, 24, and Sam, 23, have been tweeting as usual, but neither have mentioned
the end of their romance.

The TOWIE golden couple have always had a rocky relationship. They dated for four
months back in 2011, before rekindling their romance in May 2012. Viewers
watched Joey propose to Sam on a romantic holiday in Dubai in April last year,
but they split two months later before reuniting in March this year.

Rumours have been circulating that the relationship was in trouble after the pair were spotted arguing, and it’s thought their punishing work schedules are to blame.

Since leaving TOWIE, Sam has been concentrating on her modelling career and promoting her debut fragrance, La Bella, while Joey was promoting his new TV show, Educating Joey Essex: Space Cadet.

Joey had previously spoken to Now about it being hard to find time together, saying ‘it’s full-on and really tough’.
