Former Only Way Is Essex stars Sam Faiers and Joey Essex have finally got to spend some quality time together after weeks apart.

Since quitting TOWIE, both Sam and Joey - who rekindled their romance earlier this year - have had super-busy work schedules and have struggled to see each other.

Even on Joey's birthday last week, he was in Ibiza while Sam was away working in Majorca.

However, last night the cute couple were able to catch up over a few glasses of red wine and a romantic meal. Aww!

Sam posted a picture of herself and Joey on YouGossip, which showed them cosied up to each other on a sofa. Alongside emoticon kissing and heart-eyed faces, she simply said: "Date night."

In May 2013, Joey proposed to Sam during a romantic holiday in Dubai, however, the couple split just weeks later.

After going their separate ways, Sam and Joey reunited in April this year, shortly after her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother and her Crohn's Disease diagnosis.

Since then, Sam has admitted that she quit TOWIE to save her relationship with Joey, adding that being poorly made her realise "what's important".
