Joey Essex says he and Sam Faiers are seeing each other in a different light now they're no longer on TOWIE.

Viewers of the Essex-based reality show watched the couple fall in love and go through their fair share of ups and downs – including an engagement and eventual break-up.

Joey then left TOWIE to focus on other TV work.

But earlier this year, the couple quietly rekindled their romance off-screen and things are going from strength to strength, especially now that Sam has also left the Essex show.

"Now we're both off TOWIE it's a lot more stable," said Joey during an appearance on ITV's This Morning today.

"We're getting on better and we see each other in a different light because on there, although it's real, you are in scenes and have to live up to playing your relationship out on TV.

"It's a lot easier having it off TV and getting on with what you really want to do."

Viewers watched Sam and Joey fall in love during their time on TOWIE but their first meeting was actually before the show began.

"I knew Sam before TOWIE," recalled Joey. "My first club promotions night in London is where I first met and kissed her."

No doubt there will be plenty more information on Sam and Joey's romance in Joey's new book, Being Reem, which is available from today.
