'The Only Way is Essex' star Sam Faiers believes James 'Arg' Argent "knocked" her friend Gemma Collins' confidence when they dated so she is "glad" they have split up
Sam Faiers is "glad" Gemma Collins and James 'Arg' Argent have split up.
The 21-year-old beauty is pleased her 'TOWIE' co-stars are not together anymore because she thought the larger than life crooner "knocked" her friend Gemma's "confidence" during their relationship because he "only did what suited him".
She said: "I'm glad she's got past that now. I did feel for Gemma, because she had more feelings for Arg than he did for her. She's such a strong woman and Arg made her a little bit weaker. He knew what buttons to press and he knocked her confidence. But Gemma's got Rami now. He's whisking her off her feet, taking her to nice places, and that's what she deserves. Arg was never going to do that, he only did what suited him."
While she is glad to see Gemma and Arg apart, Sam - who is dating 'TOWIE' star Joey Essex - believes their co-stars Mario Falcone and Lucy Mecklenburgh have taken a "step back" in their relationship after recently calling off their engagement.
She added to new! magazine: "It's sad. I would hate Joey and I to be engaged and then go back to being boyfriend and girlfriend because you're not moving forward, you're taking a step back. But it's worked for them."
