TOWIE: Amber Dowding is new to the cast this series and she is dating her co-star Chris Clark, but does she think they can beat the show's relationship curse?

TOWIE has gained itself quite the reputation when it comes to romance, with many of the reality show's couples never seeming to last onscreen. Only Tommy Mallet and Georgia Kousoulou are still going strong, but it seems Amber is hoping she and Chris can rival them.

Opening up about her romance with Jon Clark's younger brother, Amber revealed things are "going really well" for the couple, but they are yet to put a label on their relationship.

Speaking ahead of her TOWIE debut, she said: "There's a lot of pressure on whether or not we're official, but we're seeing each other and seeing how it goes. From the way it's going at the moment, I'm sure it will be."

Eek! We can't wait to see that play out on screen...

If things do work out for the pair, Amber doesn't seem too phased about the so called TOWIE curse they could find themselves battling against. She said: "We just need to stay strong and be honest with each other the whole way through, and not let anyone come between us. Trust and loyalty is the key."

Amber's addition to the cast was confirmed earlier this week, with Georgia Kousoulou revealing her best friend would be joining her on camera this series.

Her announcement came after Chris revealed he was secretly dating somebody new called Amber, and putting two and two together, it turns out he and Georgia were both talking about the same girl.

Sharing his view on his and Amber's blossoming relationship, Chris said meeting her had been the highlight of his year (cute!). He said: "I've been seeing her since about March. We've spoken about avoiding the TOWIE curse and said the main thing we need to do is communicate.

"If we talk to each other and are open about things then nothing can catch us off guard. Trust and communication is key. If you don't have either of those, you'll fail both in TOWIE and in life."

Fans will be introduced to Amber when TOWIE returns this Sunday (17 July) to ITVBe.
