Nooooo! Sam Faiers falls for Mark Wright… again
But we didn't realise it'd be this soon.
Look away now, Lauren! Now's learnt that Mark, 24, and Sam have been engaged in a secret three-week flirtathon.
A close family friend says: ‘It's back on.
'They make a better couple than Mark and Lauren, but when it comes to women, he changes his mind when the wind blows.'
However, Sam - who first dated the lothario back in December - is falling head over heels.
A friend tells us: ‘Sam's always had a thing for Mark but they're keeping things casual for now as he's made it clear he isn't ready for another relationship.
'Mark says he doesn't want to hurt Lauren, but Sam's worried that he just doesn't want to appear off the market to other girls.
'She'd prefer something more steady, but she's holding out hope that things will progress over time.'
Tellingly, Sam's publicist refused to confirm or deny the claims when we contacted him.
He said: ‘We don't comment on our clients' private lives so this isn't something I can help with.'
