Joey Essex says his girlfriend and 'The Only Way is Essex' co-star Sam Faiers is concerned about his safety while he competes on ITV1 diving show 'Splash!'
Sam Faiers is "worried" about Joey Essex competing on 'Splash!'.
The blonde beauty is concerned about her boyfriend and 'The Only Way is Essex' co-star getting injured on the ITV1 diving show after he recently tore muscles following a dodgy dive, but Joey insists the incident hasn't slowed him down in the bedroom.
He said: "I did a face flop and it hurt everywhere - my groin, everything. I was dizzy. You know in films where you see stars going round their heads? That was me! I've also hurt my arm, torn muscles and everything. Sam's worried about me!
"Put it this way, if I have been banned from sex, I've been disobedient!"
But Joey admits he feels bad for 'Hollyoaks' beauty Jennifer Metcalfe, who was due to take part in 'Splash!' but she pulled out of the show after splitting up with her boyfriend and professional skater Sylvain Longchambon, who has reportedly started dating his 'Dancing on Ice' partner Samia Ghadie.
The 22-year-old star added to new! magazine: "I feel so sorry for her. If you're going through a bad relationship, it isn't easy to do something like this. You can't focus your mind on it."
