TOWIE: Sam Faiers reveals that Mark Wright has fancied Michelle Keegan for ages!
Whilst the news that former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright has started seeing Coronation Street star, Michelle Keegan, came as a huge surprise to most of us, there was one person who really wasn’t, his ex-girlfriend, Sam Faiers!
Mark, who dated his former TOWIE co-star, Sam, between spells of going out with his on/off fiancée, Lauren Goodger, was pictured with the stunning Corrie babe back at new year whilst they puckered up during a New Year’s Eve party in Dubai.
Since returning many stories have emerged about them being an item way before then, but that they had managed to keep it a secret, not wanting the pressure of the media to spoil their relationship so early on.
However, it would seem that Mark’s heart has belonged to Michelle even before then, as Sam Faiers has claimed that the former I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here star has had a crush on Keegan for ages!
Speaking to new! magazine, Sam commented: “Mark has always fancied Michele.”
She went on to recall her first time of meeting Michelle:
“At the NTA’s a couple of years ago. She was really nice.
“I got a picture of her and Mark and Arg were jealous. They both fancied her.”
With regards to Mark and Michelle’s relationship now, she continued:
“I think they are [a good match]. I heard that Mark’s mum and dad went out with her a few times and really like her.”
However Sam, who is currently seeing her TOWIE co-star, Joey Essex, insists she has no pangs of jealousy over the relationship, explaining:
“He’s always going to be a close friend and I’m close to Carol and Mark, his mum and dad,” she said.
“I will always know what he is up to through them.”
