Sam Faiers has feelings for Mark Wright
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."
