'Older woman' Sam Faiers
The Only Way Is Essex's Sam Faiers has admitted she feels like the ''older woman'' in her relationship, despite new man Joey Essex being six months older than her
Sam Faiers feels like the "older" woman in her relationship even though her new man in six months older than her.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' star - who is currently dating cheeky co-star Joey Essex, 20, after the pair enjoyed a kiss at Harry Derbidge's 17th birthday party earlier in the series - is taking things slowly, as the 20-year-old beauty usually prefers older men.
Sam said: "It's actually quite random for me because usually I go out with guys that are older. That's why I'm a bit like, 'Will it work? Won't it work?' I'll have to see how it progresses.
"With Joey, I feel like I'm the older one and he's like the toyboy, even though he's actually six months older than me. But then girls are always older than boys in their mentality."
Despite Sam being humiliated on the ITV2 show when she poured her heart out to former flame Mark Wright only to discover had had proposed to on-off girlfriend of 10 years Lauren Goodger, she is still unsure whether she prefers Joey or Mark.
Asked if she fancies new man Joey more than Mark, she told new! magazine: "That's a really difficult question to answer because Joey's new on the scene, whereas with Mark there were real feelings there.
"I'm not going to predict the future. At the moment, we're just spending a bit of time together. We didn't plan our kiss, so we'll see how it progresses. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work."
