Essex hunk Joey said: "It just feels a bit random as it wasn't like we were going through a bad patch. It was just like, bang, out of the blue."

However after reciveing a message from Sam asking to talk, things went downhill.
"I rang her and she said she thought we needed to go on a break and asked me whether I felt the same," Joey said.
"I told her to make her mind up but she was saying she didn't know what to do. I got a bit upset, as any boy would. It was a really weird phone call and I was pretty baffed out."
He added however that he hopes the pair can get back together quicly.
"I've never fallen in love with a girl so quickly before. I know she feels the same way," he said.
