The TOWIE cast member told last week she had was even having cancer fears over her mystery illness which saw her forced to leave the house for hospital.
“I haven’t had my results back yet. I had two trips to the hospital and blood tests and other tests," Sam said. “Whatever it is – virus, infection, it could be something more. They haven’t said but I’ve got all things going through my mind like cancer and God knows what.
“I haven’t been able to hold food down for two weeks. It’s like my body has shut down.”
Supposed friends of the reality star reckon it's all Joey Essex's fault... in a round about way.
"No one knows what the problem is yet," a source said. "Sam's at home now, but she's been really miserable having to spend so much time in hospital.
"Her friends suspect her illness is linked to stress. She's not been herself since breaking up with Joey last June after three years together - she thought she was OK after he ended things but, recently, she's been realising how much she misses him."
According to Closer magazine, Sam is hoping to meet up with Joey in a bid to talk of a reunion, which is sure to be bad news for Ollie Locke.
"Sam really likes Ollie - but just as a friend," the source added.
