Joey Essex hits back at affair and showmance claims
Trolls have let rip on Twitter, accusing the couple, both 22, of getting engaged simply to gain more exposure, with some haters even claiming they’re both having relationships with other people.
In an exclusive chat, Joey tells Now: ‘We’ve had cheating rumours from the beginning.
‘It’s annoying and it can cause arguments. I try not to listen as it gets me down.
‘This is about me and Sam and we’re so happy.’
The couple have had more than their fair share of drama.
Last May they briefly split after Joey was snapped leaving a club with a pretty blonde called Amber.
Around the same time, it was alleged Joey had been unfaithful while making a public appearance in Bangor.
Just days later, snaps of Joey getting close to a Sam lookalike in Ibiza emerged.
However, Joey tells Now: ‘Sam’s “the one”. I love her.
‘We’re in this for ever and this is real.’
