Sam met property developer Paul just nine months ago. Their romance came to light earlier this year after the pair were spotted kissing on a beach in Dubai.

Initially, they chose to keep their romance out of the public eye, but soon enough they began sharing loved-up photos on social media.

In April, Sam opened up to Mail Online about her relationship, saying she didn't expect to meet anyone so soon after her split with ex-boyfriend Joey Essex.

"Everyone said 'you're so young, stay single and play the field for a while', that was my full intention," she said. "I didn't expect to meet anyone... particularly after such an on-off relationship. I suppose they say it happens when you're not looking for it."

Sam's sister Billie gave birth to daughter Nelly in July last year, and Sam has openly said in the past that she can't wait to have a family of her own.
