Sam Faiers has admitted while she will ''always'' have feelings for Mark Wright, she just wants to be friends with her 'The Only Way Is Essex' co-star
Sam Faiers will "always" have feelings for Mark Wright.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' beauty - who briefly dated her co-star during the first series of the ITV2 reality show - admitted while the pair do care for each other, she just wants to be a good friend to Mark following his recent split from fiance Lauren Goodger.
She said: "When we are talking he makes little jokes, like, 'Imagine if we got together in the show' but I just laugh it off - it's all just fun. Obviously I will always have feelings for him and he has feelings for me - you can't deny that. We do have a laugh together.
"You can never say never, but at the moment I just want to be there for him as a friend, nothing more. Me and Mark have had a history - although only ever one date! We went out for dinner together when I was 17 and everything else since then has just been about friendship."
However, Sam - who had a four-month relationship with 'TOWIE' co-star Joey Essex during the second season of the show - insists show producers won't push her and Mark together, and she's heard rumours he's romancing Lucy Mecklenburgh once again anyway.
She added to Star magazine: "They won't push anything that's not going to happen. But they know the chemistry's there. I'm seeing someone and there have been rumours of Mark seeing Lucy, but I want to keep out of it."
