Joey and Sam split up last summer after three years together. He then left TOWIE behind when he took part in I'm A Celeb, while Sam spent three weeks in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

After leaving the jungle, Joey reportedly hooked up with fellow contestant Amy, but he now insists: "There was never a relationship between me and her. Ever.

"Maybe she thought it was a relationship but it weren't. It was just a laugh. There was never a romance."

While Sam continues to appear in TOWIE, Joey will soon be seen in his own fly-on-the-wall documentary Educating Joey Essex.

He filmed the series in Africa earlier this year.
