We reckon Joey Essex will want to read Sam Faiers' new autobiography about her life after TOWIE...

It’s news that will be far from Reem for Joey Essex.

Sam Faiers has revealed she is about to tell the truth about her turbulent relationship with Joey in her explosive new autobiography Secrets and Lies.

And brace yourself, it won’t be for the faint-hearted.

Not only is the ex-TOWIE star setting the record straight about Joey, she is set to cover major aspects of her life which we expect to go into detail about their break up, Celebrity Big Brother secrets and shocking battle with Crohn’s disease.

Sam says: ‘The last few years have definitely been a rollercoaster ride. I’ve had laughter and tears, love and heartbreak and everything in between. So here is my side of the story. Here is the truth behind the headlines. I can’t wait for everyone to read it.’

No doubt it will be flying off the shelves when it is released later this month.

Sam’s first book, Living Life The Essex Way, was hugely successful and a Sunday Times number one bestseller back in 2012. But Sam will be the first to tell you, she has come a long way since then and over the last couple of years in particular her love life, health issues and success have pushed her to the limit.

Joey then proposed to Sam in March 2013 on a holiday in Dubai but they split again on TOWIE in June 2013 following some blazing rows between the pair.

In this explosive new book, she sheds light on what it is really like living in the spotlight and the drama since leaving Towie. But it hasn’t been all doom and gloom for Sam.

Since leaving TOWIE she has also become an aunty to her adorable niece Nelly, who she dotes on.
Sam told us earlier this year of how baby Nelly has changed her life. She said: ‘I’ve hardly been going clubbing anymore. I’ve been getting early nights and sleeping over at Billie’s so I can get up early with Nelly.’

Aww.

Fenella Bates, Editorial Director at Penguin Michael Joseph said: ‘I am so excited to be publishing Sam’s new memoir. It’s a brilliant page-turner and I know readers will love finding out the sensational truth behind the headlines.’

Secrets and Lies by Sam Faiers is out on 23 April 2015.
