The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers has said that she has listened to those warning her to stay away from ex-boyfriend Mark Wright.
Faiers had an on-off relationship with the Take Me Out: The Gossip host during his time on the ITV2 reality show, around his similarly on-off engagement to Lauren Goodger.
Speaking to the Daily Star she said: "I'm still single. The last couple of series of TOWIE have been based around relationships, break-ups and stuff like that. But in the new series they are not playing on that so much. We are not under pressure to be in a relationship.
"I'm not looking for a relationship. Obviously I'll date on the show and have fun but I don't want a boyfriend. I've only been single for a while. I don't fancy Diags (James Bennewith) and Ricky (Rayment) had five girls jump on him as soon as he arrived and I'm not into that. Ricky came on the show and he had baggage within two days, so I'm not getting involved."
She added: "Everyone warned me not to go back to Mark but I'm never going to do that. That door has closed."
The blonde split from her previous boyfriend TJ in February, resulting in plans for him to join the TOWIE cast being scrapped.
