Joey Essex is vowing to win back ex-girlfriend Sam Faiers.
The 21-year-old hunk - who split from the blonde beauty in July after four months of dating - is hoping to be romantically attached to his 'The Only Way Is Essex' co-star by the time the ITV2 reality show returns for a third series next month.
After the pair shared a smooch at last weekend's V Festival, Joey thinks Sam is the only one for him.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "We saw each other at the festival and she was sitting on my lap and we had a bit of a kiss. There's no-one else for me right now.
"I'm still talking with Sam about things so we'll see what happens."
However, the reality star's pals are concerned he could end up getting his heart broken once again.
A friend added: "Joey is convinced he can win Sam back. We just hope he doesn't end up getting hurt."
Despite their concerns, Sam - who enjoyed a brief romance with 'TOWIE' co-star Mark Wright during the first series of the show - recently admitted she "wouldn't rule out" rekindling her romance with Joey in the future.
She said: "I'm still his friend and I still fancy him - who wouldn't? He's so cute and he'd do anything for me. I know Joey still cares about me. He has been the best boyfriend I could ask for.
"I still have feelings for him so I wouldn't rule out us getting back together at a later date. We'll just have to see what happens. I'm keeping busy and it's all fine."
