The Only Way Is Essex's Sam Faiers and Joey Essex hit the headlines in May when they got engaged in Dubai.

Joey whisked Sam off to the Middle East for a surprise break before getting down on bended knee by their private villa's swimming pool.

The reality star struggled to hold back the tears as he proposed to Sam - who accepted - before popping on a giant dazzling diamond.

However, their excitement was short lived and, despite a lavish engagement party back in Essex, the couple split just weeks later.

Although Sam recently admitted that she still loves Joey, he appeared to be getting close to his I'm A Celebrity campmate Amy Willerton following their jungle stint.
