Glamour girl Sam is one of the original core cast of the smash hit ITV living soap The Only Way is Essex. The show started in October 2010, with Sam all secretly smitten with sleazy nightclub owner Mark. Trouble is…his girlfriend Lauren. Sam became one of the biggest stars on the show, at the centre of her very own TOWIE love triangle. After admitting to bedding love rat Mark, she was bombarded by abusive Tweets from Lauren’s fans.
After Mark proposed to Lauren, despite admitting feelings for Sam, she’s since moved on to another nightclub promoter and TOWIE star, Joey Essex. He half-proposed to her in June 2011 and she was spotted around town wearing a blingin’ promise ring, but they subsequently split the following month.
Since the show began, Sam’s modelling offers have been rolling in and she’s now a Star columnist too. She also runs an Essex fashion store with her older sister Billie, called Millie’s Boutique.
After starring in Celebrity Big Brother 2013 Sam was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and has since cut out alcohol and eats healthily.
Sam recently broke up with Joey Essex AGAIN following a series of rows. Wi
