It’s all over for Sam and Joey Essex as they 'mutually' decide to call time on their three-year relationship

It’s an emotional day as one of our favourite TOWIE couples, Sam Faiers and Joey Essex announce that they’ve split, and this time, it’s apparently for good.

Boo.

Last month, the attractive pair rekindled their romance after a brief break-up following a string of heated arguments whilst holidaying in Marbella.

Now though, a source has revealed that Sam, 23, and Joey, 24, have been apart for a few weeks and that their latest split is ‘mutual’.

‘They sat down a couple of weeks ago and both agreed things weren’t working. There was no big dramatic reason for the split, as it was more that they are both in different places in their lives,’ admitted the insider to The Sun newspaper.

The pair have been together on-and-off for three years and were even engaged for a short period in 2013.

Despite seeming like the perfect couple, they certainly endured their fair share of drama with Sam even admitting that she pushed and slapped Joey before another one of their break-ups last summer.

Yikes!

This ‘final’ split could come as surprise to many as it was only recently that Sam described Joey as the ‘love of my life’. The former Celebrity Big Brother 2014 star also explained that she wanted to start a family.

‘I love babies and children and Joey knows that. I’d have three or four children if I could,’ confessed Sam.

‘I don’t want to leave it too late, maybe 30. I don’t want to be too old because you want to get your figure back,’ she added.

There’ll be no crying into a tub of Ben and Jerry’s ice-cream for Sam though. The newly-single Essex lady was seen partying on Saturday night alongside sister Billie Faiers and former TOWIE co-star, Ferne McCann. You go girl!
