TOWIE's Sam Faiers And Joey Essex Confirm Romance With Intimate Image

It's been a rumour that has been going on for months but it can now be laid to rest as TOWIE babe Sam Faiers and Joey Essex have appeared to confirm their rekindled romance.

The couple who were once engaged, split from each other last year. However, the feelings that they had for each other then are still prominent now when Joey posted a picture of him snuggling up to Sam on his Instagram account.

With Sam looking straight into the camera whilst wearing no make up and lying in bed, Joey can be seen topless and nuzzling his nose into Sam's cheek.

Joey decided to let the picture do the talking as there was no caption to accompany the image.

How sweet!

Having shown their romance on TV before, perhaps the couple now want to keep their romance between them as when we quizzed Joey recently on the rumours, he was quick to play them down and insisted that he and Sam were just friends.

Insisting that nothing was going on between them at the time, Joey said: "Sam will always have a close place in my heart and it's not nice to hear that she's ill so we've been talking.

"I'll always care about Sam. We've met up a few times and spoke."

He added: "We're just talking as friends. It's early stages. Never say never but we're just talking as friends."

Speaking about his current relationship status, Joey added: "I don't really know what I want. I've got so much going on. Is there time?"

WAIT! Could this be an April Fools' day trick?
