Will Sam Faiers EVER get her proposal?

Come on, Paul, give her AND the fans what they want

Sam Faiers Paul Knightley proposal

If there’s one thing we know about Samantha Faiers, it’s that she’s a hopeless romantic. And she’s not shy about it, either – whether she’s posting gushing Insta-tributes to partner Paul Knightley, or surprising him with loved-up gestures. And last week, she pulled out all the stops again, calling in the experts to set up an elaborate at-home dining experience for her and her beau on Valentine’s Day.

But while the 30 year old isn’t shy in coming forward, general consensus is that Paul isn’t so forthcoming. And now fans have been left wondering if the Mummy Diaries star will ever get a proposal.

“I really don’t get what he’s waiting for,” wrote one follower last week, after Sam posted pictures and videos of her and Paul – who are parents to Paul, five, and Rosie, three – celebrating the annual day of love.

This involved an extravagant set-up in their Surrey dining room, complete with an indoor tipi, candles, neon signs, balloons and enough feathers to make Big Bird feel jealous.

Lydia Bright

Lovely Lydia Bright had a tough job putting up with on/off boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent. After Arg's cheating ways proved too much to deal with, Lydia walked away from their relationship and the show in 2012, but returned for a few special episodes.

Arg was the loveable cheeky chap who could first be found singing around the bars of Essex. After proving to be a pretty lousy boyfriend to Lyds and being suspended from the show for partying, Arg went into rehab and came out a new man.

Poor Lauren Goodger was always in distress over long-term boyfriend Mark Wright. The future never really looked promising for this couple. In fact, she famously pushed Mark into a swimming pool.

Lauren left the show in 2016, before appearing on Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Big Brother. She's now in a relationship with Joey Morrisson, who's currently doing a stretch in prison. Lauren occasionally makes a special appearance in the show that made her name.

Ah, Mark wright - he sure did have a way with the ladies in Essex. After finishing things with fiance Lauren Goodger, he had flings with Sam Faiers and Lucy Mecklenburgh. Mark left the show in 2016 after meeting actress Michelle Keegan.

Mark married Michelle in 2015 and now has a TV career in LA, presenting a show called Extras. The pair are VERY loved up and we reckon it's far less dramatic than his previous relationships.

Sugar Hut club promoter Kirk Norcross had relationships with Amy Childs and Lauren Pope. He even had 'his n hers' nose surgery with Popey before they split. Kirk also introduced viewers to his Sugar Hut owner dad, Mick, who had a one-sided love affair with Gemma Collins.

Kirk is now a dad to two kids and he has an ADORABLE Instagram feed of family photos. Kirk also had a stint on Celebrity Big Brother and Ex On The Beach, but it looks like he's now sticking to life as a daddy.

Young Harry was the cousin of Amy Childs and just as glamorous as her. Who can forget when he performed as Lady Gaga at his birthday party?

Harry started a relationship with co-star Bobby Norris but it ended after Harry reportedly cheated. Harry recently opened up about his battle with an eating disorder, but he looks to be doing well, and is now a pretty amazing makeup artist. Do you think he's had lip fillers? Hmmm.

Sam Faiers first hit screens when best mate Amy Childs gave her a vajazzle. She gave in to Mark Wright's romantic pursuits for a short while, but it was her relationship with Joey Essex that won our hearts (sob).

Jess Wright

Sister of Mark Wright, she had to give him a few sisterly straight-talks. She was a model and singer, with dreams of making it big in the pop music world. Jess's big relationship was with co-star Ricky Rayment.

Lucy is now a fitness GURU. Honestly, nothing comes between this girl and her abs. She's now in a relationship with former Corrie actor Ryan Thomas after appearing on Celebrity Island together. She also runs a fashion boutique and an online fitness program - quite the entrepreneur.

Model Maria Fowler was Popey's best pal and she did NOT get on with her mate's BF Kirk Norcross. She went through some tough times in public after leaving the show just two series later.

But now Maria looks VERY happy in her new role as a mum to Evie, who she had with boyfriend Kelvin Batey.

Nanny Pat TOWIE27 of 27

Nanny Pat

Nanny Pat was the voice of reason that the TOWIE cast needed. She doted on her grandkids Mark and Jess Wright, and always dished out the best advice. She also knew how to let her hair down. Sadly, 80-year-old Pat died in 2015.

Another weighed in, “Needs to hurry and propose I’M WAITING” – which Sam herself actually responded to with a crying laughing emoji. A third drew attention to a photo taken of the happy couple that night, in which Paul is holding Sam’s left hand, writing, “Is he covering her engagement finger deliberately?”

But while speculation ran wild straight after Sam’s romantic display, the reality star kept quiet. And considering that her previous comments on marriage have often come back to haunt her, we can hardly blame her. After all, there are only so many times she can not-so-subtly hint that she’s waiting for a ring.

Lauren Goodger takes aim at Sam Faiers’ mummy crown

Gemma Collins 'wanted for Ex on the Beach' as stars 'consider dropping out'

Francesca Farago set to make 'huge sacrifice' for girlfriend Demi Sims after just one month as a couple

She’s previously spoken about wanting an intimate wedding in Italy, and once – during an old episode of The Mummy Diaries – told a mutual pal to “put a word in” to Paul about proposing. In 2017, before Rosie joined the family, Sam said, “We would love to be married before we have another baby”. And last year, she said she wanted to get married “when I’m 30” – she celebrated the milestone birthday in December.

With their seventh anniversary coming up in October, that could provide the perfect opportunity. We’ve got our fingers crossed anyway – after sister Billie’s Maldives extravaganza, we’d kill for another Faiers wedding to gawp at.
