Sam Faiers and Joey Essex are back together after the briefest split in the celebrity world we can remember.

The former TOWIE couple broke up while on holiday in Marbella earlier this month, but already they are back together and looking loved up again.

What on earth happened?!

A rep for Joey confirmed on 11 September that the couple had separated but declined to give details. The split surprised fans as just two days before photos had been posted to social media showing them enjoying a romantic dinner.

A source later told Reveal: "They are constantly bickering and falling out. It's not been pretty. But the last straw was in Marbella. The atmosphere between them wasn't healthy and Joey simply had enough."

Sam and Joey were pictured at a romantic dinner just two days before their split.

But whatever happened in Marbs is history now as Joey's rep has confirmed the couple are back together again.

We had a sneaky suspicion that might have been the case when Sam and Joey joined forces earlier this week for a promotional photoshoot. Although it had been arranged before the split and they were contractually obligated to appear, there was no denying the chemistry between them.

We're not sure we could have looked as happy and loved up with an ex if we'd just split with them the week before!

These loved up picures yesterday sparked the reunion rumours.

Sam and Joey have both left TOWIE now but it was on the show that we watched their romance blossom. We saw them dating, falling in love, getting engaged, splitting, reconciling. We've watched every step of their relationship!

But earlier this year, Sam revealed she was following in Joey's footsteps and leaving the show.

Sam said her decision was partly influenced by her recent Crohn's Disease diagnosis and desire to take care of herself, and also her wish to keep her relationship away from the cameras.
