Reality TV star to leave show to work on love life

The Only Way is Essex star Sam Faiers will quit the show this week to work on her relationship with Joey Essex.

Sam, who has been in the show since the very start, said she feels it’s “the right time to go” and reportedly plans to say her goodbyes on the series 11 finale this Wednesday.

Sam and the I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! star Joey, 23, were once engaged but broke up last year in typically dramatic TOWIE style.

However, the pair has been photographed getting closer in recent weeks, spotted out and about holding hands.

And now it seems Sam plans to bid her farewells to the cast to give her relationship a real shot.

The 23-year-old has also been told to cut her workload after being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.

The reality show star said she couldn’t eat solid foods for two months and lived on nutrition shakes to deal with the condition
