Sam's taking charge of her new pad

Sam Faiers won’t be relying on fianc√© Joey Essex to do DIY duties around the house.

The TOWIE couple, who recently got engaged on the show, are after a new pad together and Sam thinks she’ll be better at decorating than Joey, 22.

I want to make the house really cosy and homely,’ says Sam, 22.

Joey has a really nice flat but it’s very minimalist – it’s a proper boy place. I hope to make things a bit more girlie.

I’ll probably end up doing all of the DIY though. Joey is rubbish! He’s the least handy man ever.’

As they’re busy setting up home together Sam says she won’t be getting married to Joey straight away.

We both really want a big white wedding, but there’s plenty of time for all that,’ the blonde says.

We’re moving in together at the moment. Of course, we’re going to stay in Essex, as I want to be near my family.’
