Sam Faiers has confessed personality is more important to her than appearance when looking for a boyfriend but admits she does like a "cheeky" smile

Sam Faiers wants a boyfriend with a "personality".

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has confessed she's back on the dating scene after splitting from former co-star and fiance Joey Essex last year and admits she's now looking for a "cheeky" guy.

Quizzed on what she's attracted to in a man, she said: "I think they have to have that cheeky, friendly smile. Joey was really handsome but I don't always go for someone who's textbook good-looking. They have to have a personality."

The 24-year-old beauty also opened up about what would make for her ideal date and admitted she would rather go somewhere casual.

She explained: "I'm easy. I quite like a restaurant or a bar as it's not so romantic and intimate. Something relaxed, with no awkward silences."

Sam has her own range of false eyelashes and recently set up her own fitness business but claims she wouldn't go over the top with her appearance when meeting a potential boyfriend.

When asked what she would wear on a date, she added to Now magazine: "Something smart but not too revealing with maybe a bit of cleavage - a nice jacket, a pair of boots and an oversized bag. Keep your make-up toned down. I think guys like that more. You don't want him to say, 'Woah, who the hell's that?' when you take off your make-up!"
