Former TOWIE stars Joey Essex and Sam Faiers have reportedly turned down the chance to star in their own reality show.

The loved up couple both appeared in TOWIE - where we saw their romance blossom – but have now left to focus on other projects and their relationship off screen.

Perhaps it's no surprise then to hear they've declined the opportunity to front their own fly-on-the-wall series.

A source told The Mirror: "They feel their relationship has been on screen enough for a while. They've been a lot happier together as a couple since they left the show and they don't want to ruin that anytime soon."

Joey, 24, left last year and went on to appear on I'm A Celebrity…. Get Me Out Of Here! and front his own shows for ITV2.

Sam, 23, walked away from TOWIE earlier this year to focus on her relationship with Joey and regaining her health after being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. She's also been working on projects including her own perfume, LaBella, and campaigns for brands including Ann Summers.

In June, she told Reveal that she didn't feel like she was missing out when the TOWIE cast headed to Marbs to film series 12.

"To be honest, I'm glad to be away from the drama! I've just been looking online and keeping up with all the gossip, texting Ferne [McCann], seeing if everything's alright. I can't wait to watch it and not be in it, and not have to worry about anything. Not have to think, 'What did I do... what was I wearing... who did I row with!'"
