It seems like Sam Faiers’ recent illness has brought her and Joey Essex back together as the pair are reportedly giving their relationship another go.

The pair split up last year, which left Joey Essex devastated at the time… possibly because he had to go and pawn that engagement ring. But, since the announcement of Sam’s mystery illness, the pair have crawled back to each other.

It was announced earlier this week that Sam is suffering from Chron’s disease, which has seen the star lose over two stone in around seven weeks. She’s now having to drink special nutrition shakes to get her back to a healthy weight.

Poor Sam came down with her mystery ailment whilst in the Cekebrity Big Brother house in January, and it was first thought that she had a bad case of the flu. She was rushed to the hospital twice in the four week period and wasn’t eating much either, which resulted in her losing quite a lot of weight in a short space of time.

After the pair went their separate ways, Essex entered the I’m a Celebrity jungle in November, in which he got it on with model Amy Willerton, but nothing seemingly came of it. But, it also looked like Faiers was set to have some sort of relationship with posh Chelsea boy, Ollie Locke after they became close in the Celebrity Big Brother house earlier this year.

A source told The Sun that Joey was “devastated” when he heard about Sam’s condition and wanted to be there for her. Despite the pair splitting last summer, Essex still cares about Sam and wants to be there for her as much as possible. And, she still has feelings for him too.

“The situation has thrown them back together and they are now closer than ever,” the source added.

However, one pal close to the situation has said that Joey won’t be returning to The Only Way is Essex, so it means that both he and Sam can give their relationship another go without all of the publicity that goes with TOWIE.

Are you happy with Joey and Sam are giving it another go or do you think they’re both fools? Let us know in the comments below…
