On tonight’s TOWIE we’ll finally see Joey Essex propose to girlfriend Sam Faiers – something fans have been waiting for for some time now.
It’s traditional for the groom-to-be to call the bride-to-be’s father to ask permission to pop the question, but Joey called his own dad before getting down on one knee.
Joey got nervous before he was about to propose to Sam during a romantic holiday in Dubai, and had to make a last minute call back home to get some words of encouragement from his dad,
“He got stage fright. He had to make an emotional call home to his dad for support,” an insider tells The Sun.
Awww, how cute it that.
Joey has previously said that he’d propose to Sam away from the TOWIE cameras, “I'm going to ask Sam to marry me but I always said I wouldn't want to do it on the show.”
Perhaps he knew he’d get stage fright. We’re just glad Joey finally plucked up the courage to ask Sam and that we get to see the romantic moment in tonight’s show.
