Joey Essex and Sam Faiers have split again.

According to The Sun, the former TOWIE couple have called it quits just days after looking happy together while on holiday in Marbella this week.

A rep for Joey confirmed the split to Reveal but declined to give any further details.

Sam and Joey looked happy together on 8 September.

A source told the newspaper that Joey flew home from celebrity hotspot Marbs alone following a row with his girlfriend and that the couple had been bickering ahead of the holiday.

If true, it comes as a surprise as just a few days ago on 9 September the couple looked blissfully happy while enjoying a romantic dinner together in Spain.

Joey and Sam had been enjoying a getaway with Sam's elder sister Billie and her niece Nelly. TOWIE stars Gemma Collins and Ferne McCann were also partying in Marbs at the time.

And back on 21 August Joey and Sam looked loved up and very happy while enjoying a glamorous night out in Mayfair.

What's happened?!

Loved up in Ibiza on 9 August.

Joey and Sam have long been one of TOWIE's best loved couples. We saw them fall in love on screen, get engaged, split and go through various ups and downs.

Joey was first to leave the ITV2 show in order to focus on other projects including his Fusey shop, his hair line and to enter the jungle on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Sam then followed earlier this year, admitting her decision to quit TOWIE was due to her recent diagnosis with Crohn's Disease and a desire to put Joey first.

"It was Joey or the show and I chose Joey. I've spent time apart from him and I've spent time really ill. I realise now what is important and that's health, happiness and my love for him. It was hard to leave TOWIE but I'm not risking those things any more."
